Infertility is the inability for a person to reproduce by natural means (unprotected sexual intercourse) for 12 months or more. It affects about 1 in 6 Australian couples of reproductive age.

There are a number of causes but these may be difficult to determine

Inadequate levels of hormones in both men and women

Ovulation issues – not ovulating or irregular ovulation. Ovulation problems are often caused by polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) which is the most common cause of female infertility.

There are many treatments to significantly improve the chances of getting pregnant including hormone treatments, fertility drugs and surgery. In addition, assisted reproduction uses various medical techniques to fertilise an egg (IVF).
