Many couples are nowadays facing fertility problems, some of which can be easily treated if consulted at the right time. Generally, as women grow older, especially after 35, their probability of becoming pregnant goes down, as well as the risk of miscarriage increases. As we age, our reproductive system starts aging, thereby increasing the complications of pregnancy thereafter.
Infertility refers to an inability to conceive after having regular unprotected sex. Infertility can also refer to the biological inability of an individual to contribute to conception, or to a female who cannot carry a pregnancy to full term. In many countries, infertility refers to a couple that has failed to conceive after 12 months of regular sexual intercourse without the use of contraception.
Infertility has traditionally been thought of as a woman’s problem. But as it turns out, men are equally to blame “Male factor” contributes to infertility around half the time, and about one-third of the time it is the main cause of infertility.

The ultimate goal of male infertility treatment is to create a pregnancy. Ideally, the cause of the infertility is reversible and then conception can result from natural sex. Here are some common male infertility treatments.
In the past, if the above methods didn’t work, it often meant lifelong male infertility. Today assisted reproductive techniques (ARTs) offer a wide range of treatments for treating male infertility. These high-tech and expensive male infertility treatments give sperm an artificial boost to fertilise the egg. ART has made conception possible even for men with very low or abnormal sperm.
A “female” factor — scarring from sexually transmitted disease or endometriosis, ovulation dysfunction, poor nutrition, hormone imbalance, ovarian cysts, pelvic infection, tumour, or transport system abnormality from the cervix through the fallopian tubes — is responsible for 40 – 50% of infertility in couples.
There are a number of things that may contribute to female infertility, such as:
With the rate of infertility on the rise as it is today, there are also many fertility clinics that offer some or all of the following treatments:
