Evaluation, diagnose and treatment

During a long period of time it was considered merely a women’s condition and is proven that is not solely on the female side. Infertility is a condition that affects as well men and women, approximately one in six couples unsuccessfully reproduce. It is very important, due to the variety of causes, to perform a thorough check up to the couple to determine which are the factors that hold back the couples to achieve the most precious realization dream of the human being. It is recommendable to take action as women’s, as well men’s reproductive period, is brief.

Eggs have a limited life as well and the probabilities of procreating are low. To even think that women are always ‘on time’ to get pregnant, instead of having the proper help from their infertility professionals, is always a mistake.

Infertility can be primary if pregnancy has never been achieved and secondary if the couple has children already but have difficulties to achieve another pregnancy.
