The Problem

Around 3.5 million people in the UK (one couple in seven) may have difficulty conceiving, and for women, it can be harder to conceive after 35 years of age. With couples having IVF treatment, roughly half of the cases are due to female infertility, and half are due to male infertility.

The statistic that around 3.5 million people in the UK, equating to one in seven couples, may experience difficulty conceiving, highlights a significant reproductive health issue. This figure underscores the prevalence of infertility challenges faced by a considerable portion of the population. The complexity of these challenges is further compounded by age-related factors, particularly for women, and the varied causes of infertility that necessitate treatments like In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).


What can be done?

If fertility abnormalities are found, we can recommend a correct specialist referral and arrange this for you. Common treatments include hormone-boosting drugs, IUI, and IVF. If you would like to consider conception assistance, we can provide you with the details of a recommended centre in the Harley Street area which has proved generally successful for our patients.

IVF is a powerful solution for many couples facing infertility. It involves fertilizing an egg with sperm in a laboratory and then implanting the embryo into the woman’s uterus. IVF can bypass many of the common issues that cause infertility, such as fallopian tube blockages or low sperm count.

Overcoming Infertility

The field of assisted reproductive technology, including IVF, has seen significant advancements, increasing success rates and offering hope to many couples. Techniques like Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) for severe male infertility and preimplantation genetic testing have further enhanced the effectiveness of IVF.

What is it?

Infertility is a medical condition characterized by the inability to conceive after a significant period of unprotected sexual intercourse, typically defined as one year for most couples. It can affect both men and women and involves the inability to contribute to conception or to carry a pregnancy to term. Infertility is not just a physical issue but can also have profound emotional and psychological impacts on those affected.

Primary Infertility refers to couples who have never been able to conceive. Despite having regular, unprotected sexual intercourse, pregnancy has never occurred. Secondary Infertility is diagnosed when a couple has previously conceived but is currently unable to achieve another pregnancy. This can be due to various factors that have arisen since the last pregnancy.

Infertility can result from a variety of factors, and often, it’s a combination of both male and female conditions.

What are the most common reasons for fertility problems?
In women, the most common reasons are endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, blocked fallopian tubes and poor egg quality. In men, the most common cause is lack of sperm or low sperm motility.
When is a woman naturally most fertile?
The most fertile time of a woman’s menstrual cycle is at ovulation. This usually occurs around the mid-point of your cycle (day 14, counting the first day of your period as day 1) but can be earlier or later.
Do I have to have been trying to conceive for any particular length of time before getting fertility testing?
Fertility testing is usually recommended after a year of trying to conceive, but if you are concerned about your fertility for any reason, you do not need to wait to come in for testing.
