Fertility refers to the ability to conceive and have a child.
Myth: Women can't get pregnant during perimenopause
It is recommended you use contraception to prevent pregnancy until you have had:
- one year without a period if you are over 50
- two years without a period if you are under 50.
Myth: Age only affects women's fertility, not men's
Fact: Both men’s and women’s fertility declines with age.
Myth: Assisted reproductive treatments are always successful
Myth: Fertility is predictable. If you are young and healthy, you will have no problems conceiving a baby
Fertility disorders are found in both men and women. In some cases, the causes are unknown or cannot be determined.
