Openly discussing infertility
One in every six couples in Europe has difficulty getting pregnant. Infertility often causes couples distress and can also be a true test for a relationship.
Infertility occurs when there is no pregnancy after more than a year of regular sexual intercourse. Intercourse on a regular basis is defined as 2 to 3 times per week.
When couples are unable to conceive naturally, we conduct a diagnostic and then begin various treatments. If simple treatments fail, we can assist with artificial insemination procedures, ie. ART. ART is an abbreviation for Assisted Reproductive Technology.
Today’s medicine makes it possible for most couples to have a healthy child. The average success rate of ART procedures is between 25% and 30% per cycle.
