Globally, an astounding 1 in 6 couples suffer from infertility.
Infertility is defined as a couple who is unable to conceive after one year of trying naturally. In Singapore, 12-15% of couples are unable to conceive after one year of trying. In about 39% of these cases, the cause is female infertility. In 20%, it is male infertility, and in 26% the problem lies with both partners.
