A 25-year-old woman presents to your office with her husband. The couple has been married for 3 years and has been trying to conceive for the past 2 years without any results. Her husband is 30 years old and has a four-year-old daughter from a previous marriage. None of them have any chronic medical condition. Which of the following etiologic categories is most commonly involved in female infertility?


Peritoneal factor


Ovulatory factor


Tubo-uterine factor


Cervical factor


Unexplained infertility


A. Peritoneal factor

when I did my gyn rotation I saw so many cases of PCOS and thought that ovulatory factor has more to do with infertility.
