What is infertility & how common it is?
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines infertility as "a disease of the reproductive system defined by the failure to achieve a pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse”. This means that a couple is not able to become pregnant after a year of trying. However, for women aged 35 and older, inability to conceive after 6 months is generally considered infertility. Around 17.5% of the adult population – roughly 1 in 6 worldwide – experience infertility.
What lifestyle factors can contribute to infertility?
Factors like smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, obesity, poor diet, high levels of stress and lack of physical activity can negatively affect fertility. Addressing these factors positively can contribute to improved fertility outcomes.
When should I see a fertility specialist?
If You're under 35 and have been trying for a year without a pregnancy or if You're 35 or older and have been trying for six months without pregnancy, you should seek a consultation with a fertility specialist.
