Many Different Factors can affect fertility

Age, weight, general health and past medical conditions can all impact fertility. However many couples will experience unexplained infertility, which though difficult to comprehend, can have good outcomes with fertility treatments.

The sooner you understand your own chances, the sooner you can achieve a healthy baby.

Bio Clock


The Biological Clock is the most important factor when having a baby. Young women without fertility problems have a about a 25% chance per month of having a baby naturally if they try at the right time of the month. This falls to about 12% at age 37 and 5% at 42.

In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF)

Many caused of infertility can be successfully treated with IVF – male infertility, tubal damage, endometriosis, ovulation problems and unexplained infertility.

IVF treatment creates the optimal conditions required to give eggs and sperm the highest chance of getting togher to create a pregnancy.

  1. First, medication is taken to increase the number of eggs available – this is called ovary stimulation.
  2. Next, the eggs are removed, during a process called egg collection, and sperm is added to the eggs in the lab. Where fertilization takes place.
  3. When IVF includes having the sperm injected directly into the egg, it is called ICSI.
  4. The embryologist then selects the embryo, they consider has the best chances of a pregnancy, to be transferred into the uterus.
  5. Other good quality embryos can be frozen for another chance of pregnancy.

Because IVF typically makes 6-10 eggs available, younger women have a 40-50% chance of having a baby from a single treatment. This is double the chance of pregnancy that couples with normal fertility have per month.
