Fertility Survey Results

Following are some of the findings from the recent survey of 1,000 Australian women:

  • 64% didn't know their fertility rapidly declines from the age of 36
  • 60% believed infertility in their 40s would be easily resolved if they underwent IVF
  • One in five women (20%) incorrectly believed it only became difficult for a woman to fall pregnant naturally in her late 40’s.
  • While 80% knew a pregnant woman in her late 30’s and early 40’s had an increased risk of having a baby with chromosomal abnormalities, 42% did not know this age group also has an increased risk of miscarriage.
  • 92% of women knew that being overweight could affect their fertility, and 74% knew that excessive alcohol consumption could also affect their fertility.
