The Infertility Education Program...
provides information and resources on infertility and related health issues to healthcare professionals and the public.
Approximately 1 in 6 couples experience infertility. Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after 12 months of unprotected intercourse (or 6 months if the woman is over the age of 35). To understand whether a couple has an infertility problem, one needs to determine whether:
- the woman is ovulating
- the man has sufficient and healthy sperm
- the sperm and egg can meet
- the fertilized egg can successfully implant in the mother’s womb.
This website offers useful resources and guidance for couples in the first stages of attempting to understand the source of their fertility concerns.
