WHAT IS INFERTILITY

Infertility is frequently defined as the inability of a couple to conceive and, subsequently, for a woman to carry a pregnancy to term, after one year of unprotected intercourse.

In 90 per cent of cases there is a specific cause for infertility that can be diagnosed and successfully treated. LifeQuest is here to help.

The Facts and Factors of Infertility

An estimated 250,000 Canadians -- about one in six couples -- have difficulty achieving a pregnancy.

Age and undiagnosed or untreated sexually transmitted diseases can contribute to reproductive problems. Environmental factors can also influence fertility in both men and women. Other barriers to conception could include: male infertility, irregular ovulation, blocked fallopian tubes and timing of intercourse.
