Dr. Paul Tseng, Fertility specialist, Gynaecologist, Obstetrician at Virtus Fertility Centre says infertile couples are becoming more commonplace in Singapore and many women face terrible stress and anxiety believing they are to blame.
But infertility is not just a ‘girl thing’ according to Dr. Tseng. In fact, 40 percent of the infertility cases the clinic assists are due to male infertility.
A survey of 1,009 women in Singapore aged 18 to 50 commissioned by Virtus Fertility Centre Singapore found that 92 per cent of those surveyed recognised that medical problems affecting both the man and woman is the most likely reason a couple may need fertility treatment to have a baby. It also showed that 63 per cent of respondents will seek advice from a doctor on fertility-related concerns.
Virtus Fertility Centre has seen success rates for in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment of 55 per cent since the centre was opened in January 2015. Results of the centre’s “freeze-all policy” to cryopreserve good quality blastocysts have also shown good pregnancy outcomes in all age groups. These results were presented at the Sixth Congress of the Asia Pacific Initiative on Reproduction (ASPIRE 2016) in Jakarta last weekend.
