One in six couples in Australia and New Zealand suffer infertility.
Infertility is the inability of a couple to achieve conception after a year of unprotected intercourse, or the inability to carry pregnancies to a live birth. Many couples suffering infertility problems can be successfully treated with medical or surgical techniques, or lifestyle changes.
Infertility is shared equally among men and women, and in the vast majority of cases a physical problem can be diagnosed.
