How common is infertility?

Difficulty in conceiving is common, experienced by one in every six couples. This frequency increases with age, especially after the age of 35.

What causes infertility?

Causes of infertility are multiple and sometimes complex. Common causes in Kenya include: blocked tubes, problems with sperm production and transport; and infrequent, or failure to ovulate. Sometimes no cause is found.

Sub-fertility is the preferred terminology for couples who have difficulties conceiving. A recent survey in Kenya suggested that about 1 in every 4 - 6 Gynecological consultations are related to sub-fertility.

Dear doctor,You seem to have forgotten men in the fertility equation. I have heard so much about preserving fertility in women, what about us men? My age is advancing rapidly, without any foreseeable prospects of a suitable partner. How do I get my fertility preserved?

Most women have a regular menstrual cycle. This means they can predict fairly accurately when the next period is expected. Some will have irregular periods for various reasons. Still, regular periods could change into an irregular pattern, causing a bit of anxiety. Regular periods imply regular ovulation, and high chances of conception. Irregular periods on the other hand imply unpredictable ovulation patterns, and often a delay in conception.

Unwanted pregnancy loss, commonly referred to as miscarriage, is quite devastating. Couples go through distressing emotions after a miscarriage, often craving for another pregnancy as part of the healing process.
