For many, the journey to parenthood isn’t a straightforward one - in fact 1 in 6 couples in Australia have difficulties conceiving - and the number is going up, not down. Of these cases, approximately 30% are attributed to female factor infertility, 30% to male factor, and another 30% due to a combination of female and male factors. The remaining 10% are classed as “unexplained infertility” by conventional medicine.
There are sometimes complex medical issues that can impact fertility, but there are also a number of everyday actions that you can take that can improve your chances. Importantly, these things can not only help your chances of getting pregnant – they can also help your chances of having a healthy baby.
