Event Description

Full Description:
Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive a pregnancy after 12 months of unprotected sexual intercourse. Infertility affects about 1 in 6 Australian couples of reproductive age. Now nearly 5% of children born in Australia result from IVF treatment. Causes of infertility are many and varied and involve male, female or a combination of factors. This includes problems with the production of sperm or eggs, the structure or function of male or female reproductive systems; and/or hormonal and immune conditions. The impact infertility has on individuals and couples can be overwhelming. The panel represents some of the leading clinician researchers and academics in QLD who are working hard to understand the causes of infertility, the impact it has in local communities and develop the next frontier in fertility treatment.
