Fertility Problems

What is Subfertility?

Subfertility, sometimes referred to as infertility, is when a couple can’t get pregnant (conceive) despite having regular unprotected sex. Subfertility affects a sizable proportion of the population. There are now many options and treatments in order to support this.


Risk Factors in Women?

  • Age: The ability to conceive starts to decline after the age of 32 years approximately
  • Smoking: Smoking can significantly increase the risk of infertility in both men and women
  • Alcohol
  • Being obese or overweight
  • Lack of or excessive exercises
  • Sexually Transmitted Infections
