About Fertility

One in six Australian couples experience difficulty conceiving. A good first step is to understand your fertility and the factors that impact your ability to conceive.

Being in optimal health will improve the chance of having a healthy baby but this is only one factor that affects fertility. Learning when your most fertile days are in the month is also very important. By having sex at the right time, you can reduce the time taken to achieve a pregnancy naturally.

Four out of five couples are pregnant after six months of trying so if you have been trying to conceive for longer than this, or you are worried, then we recommend you see a Melbourne IVF Fertility Specialist. Because female age is an important factor in determining the chance of pregnancy, if you are over 36 years of age, we recommend you see a Melbourne IVF fertility specialist to discuss your options.
