We all take fertility for granted and think that it will be available when we are ready to start a family.
Fortunately, for most this is the case, but statistics state that fertility problems affect 1 in 6 couples.
Both men and women can be affected with fertility issues, approximately 40% is attributed to the male partner, 40% to the female partner, and the remaining 20% being a combination of both partners or is “Unexplained”.
Definition of Infertility: When a couple have been free of contraception and actively been trying to conceive (having regular intercourse) for 12 months, (or 6 months when the woman is over 35 years old) and has not been able to conceive.
What may be causing fertility issues?
There are many ways that can increase your chances of conceiving a child naturally, such as lifestyle and dietary changes, making time to relax and de-stress, and looking into complementary therapies such as Fertility Massage or Fertility Reflexology.
