A study carried out by Aster DM Healthcare mentioned that one in five couples in the UAE face fertility issues – a higher figure than in other parts of the world. Statistics also show that in Dubai alone the incidence of infertile women seeking treatment per year could nearly double from 5,975 cases in 2015 to 9,139 cases by 2030. Both primary and secondary infertility are very real and very serious disorders affecting population of UAE.
Primary fertility refers to the inability of a couple to conceive a child naturally and it affects both men and women equally.
Secondary infertility, on the other hand, refers to a couple’s inability to conceive a baby, even though they’ve had at least one child in the past. Couples who experience this condition may confront a range of physical and emotional frustrations, despite the fact that they’ve been able to successfully reproduce in the past.
The same factors responsible for primary fertility problems can also cause secondary infertility. These includes:
Fertility treatments are constantly improving: pregnancy rates for infertile couples using Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) are currently higher than the average monthly fertility rates. Even if you already have a child, if you suspect secondary infertility, seek help from a fertility specialist as early as possible. Early evaluation is critical since, as time passes, certain treatment options may be more difficult to pursue.
