Fertility Q & A

What is fertility?

Fertility means being able to conceive a child. This natural, fundamental human function requires an egg from an ovary (part of the female reproductive system) to bond with a male’s sperm. The sperm fertilizes the egg, triggering cell growth and embryo formation. After around nine months, your baby is born.

While conception seems easy for most people, many others have fertility problems. If you’ve been struggling to conceive for a year with no success (or six months if you’re over 35), you and your partner could benefit from a fertility assessment.

Healthkey Group Fertility is a leading full-service infertility center that helps you conceive, reduces your risk of recurrent miscarriages, and supports you through in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intrauterine insemination (IUI) procedures.


Why might I be having fertility problems?

Both men and women can suffer from fertility problems. Common causes include:

  • Unhealthy lifestyles
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Uterine fibroids  
  • Menstruation irregularities
  • Low sperm count
  • Poor quality sperm
  • Chronic stress

In a significant number of people with fertility problems, there’s no apparent cause for their difficulty conceiving.

  • Reducing the chance of miscarriage
  • Increasing your chances of implantation
