Based on a study done in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism serum free cholesterol concentrations in both men and women have an impact on the time it takes to conceive. 501 couples trying to get pregnant that were NOT being treated for infertility were monitored until they conceived or up to 1 year.
