You can share your experience, ask questions, give answers, support. Infertility Facts:
About one in seven couples in the United States are diagnosed infertile. Age, lifestyle, diet, vaccinations, psychological problems, amalgam, toxins, stress, alcohol, drug consumption, medications, surgeries, hip-bone displacement, parasite infections, injuries and other physical problems are just some of the factors that can contribute to infertility.
Liver controls levels of many hormones inside women's body.
Liver flush is often the best cure for infertility.
A couple is infertile if they have been unable to conceive a child after 12 months of regular sexual intercourse (more then once a week) without birth control.
One in six couples in Australia are infertile.
In 40 per cent of cases the problem lies exclusively with the male, 40 per cent with the female, 10 per cent with both partners, and in a further 10 per cent of cases, the cause is unknown.
Fertility problems strike one in three women over 35.
One in 25 males have a low sperm count, and one in 35 are sterile.
More than one per cent of births in Australia involve the use of assisted reproductive technologies.
For a fertile couple in their twenties having regular unprotected sex, the chance of conceiving each month is only 25 per cent. So how do you know when something's amiss?
The answer depends on how old you are. While the age of the man is thought to play a role, the medical definition of infertility focuses on the woman. Those under 35 are advised to seek treatment for infertility if they haven't become pregnant after 12 months of regular unprotected sex. For those over 35, the threshold is six months instead of 12.
But there are degrees of infertility. The majority of infertile couples are actually subfertile – that is, they produce eggs and sperm but have difficulty conceiving due to disorders such as hormone imbalances and problems with the reproductive tract. Cases of total infertility – where no eggs or sperm are produced – are rare.
Primary infertility means they have never had a child.
Secondary infertility means that the infertile person has had one or more children in the past, but a medical problem is impairing fertility.
