Are you having trouble trying to conceive?
Fertility is an issue for one in nine couples and individuals in Australia.
Infertility can affect both men and women with the cause of infertility approximately resulting from male factors in 30% of cases, female factors in 30% of cases and a combination of the two in 30% of cases. 10% of infertility cases remain unexplained even after investigation.
When to see a fertility specialist
If you are under 35 and have not achieved a pregnancy after a year of unprotected intercourse, you should seek medical advice from your GP to see a fertility specialist.
Alternatively, if you are over 35 we recommend you seek the assistance of a fertility specialist after trying to conceive for 6 months.
