What are the most common causes of infertility?

According to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), one in seven heterosexual couples in the UK is affected by infertility. They also note that since their original guidelines on fertility were published in 2004, there has been an increase in fertility problems, and more people are seeking help and treatment. In Europe more widely, birth rate statistics have shown a fall for generations. While this may be due to social factors, it is also partly caused by infertility.
