    Abstract

    BACKGROUND: With the further development of reproductive technology over the past 2 decades, options for subfertile couples have greatly increased. OBJECTIVE: This article discusses the assessment of common male and female causes of infertility and describes a logical routine for the investigation and treatment of the subfertile couple using a flow chart approach. DISCUSSION: We suggest an approach to assessment for general practitioners, and outline the likely course of more sophisticated testing and treatments that their patients may then experience.
