What Is Infertility?

According to Dr Sulaiman Heylen, who is the president of the Southern African Society of Reproductive Medicine and Gynaecological Endoscopy (SASREG), not all couples who want a pregnancy will achieve one spontaneously and many will need to seek medical treatment to help resolve underlying fertility problems.

“Infertility is when you cannot get, or stay pregnant, after trying to conceive for at least a year, and you are under the age of 35,” the doctor explains adding that causes of infertility include: stress, depression and anxiety. It doesn’t make matters any easier that in some cultures, name calling is rife when you can’t have a baby.
