Infertility can be due to a number of causes. These include problems with eggs (a reduced store or failure to release), blocked fallopian tubes or low numbers of sperm. At our Women's hospital, we will investigate all possible causes to allow us to develop a treatment plan that best suits your needs.
In one in four couples, there is no identifiable cause for infertility despite thorough investigations but, even in this situation, we will still be able to help you with various treatment options.
The quality and quantity of sperm both have a major impact on fertility. Some men produce low numbers of sperm (oligozoospermia) which reduces the chances of a sperm reaching the egg.
