Male infertility was found in 36.8% of cases. The most common cause of female infertility was ovulation disorders [41%] while tubal obstruction contributed to only 5% of cases. Only 15% of the couples had unexplained infertility. Galactorrhoea and/or increased serum prolactin was seen in 60% of cases.
