What are the possible causes of infertility?
If you are finding it more difficult to fall pregnant than you expected, be assured you’re not alone. As many as one in six couples experience problems with infertility, for many different reasons. If you have been trying to get pregnant for more than six months, it’s important to seek medical advice – especially if you are in your mid 30’s or older, as your fertility, and the success of fertility treatments, is impacted by age.
It’s also important to understand how reproduction works, what factors affect it, and what your fertility treatment options might be. There are also some things you can do to give yourself a better chance of conceiving naturally.
