You’re hosting your best friend’s baby shower on the weekend and you log onto Facebook to check on the RSVPs only to come face-to-face with a newsfeed full of ultrasound images and first birthday photos. Your phone buzzes with a text message bearing more happy news of a baby on the way. Just as you think the day couldn’t get any worse, a colleague announces she and her partner are pregnant with twins and says: "we weren’t even really trying".
If you’re having trouble conceiving sometimes you can feel like you’re constantly surrounded by baby bumps and couples announcing their happy news. But the truth is, you’re not alone - although we understand it may seem like it. Can you believe that ninety million couples worldwide are experiencing fertility problems and in Australia one couple in every six will face a fertility issue at some point in their relationship? Thankfully, awareness and knowledge about fertility in women is growing and we can help.
Infertility can be emotionally painful and isolating but it doesn’t need to be confusing and aimless. Getting an early and accurate diagnosis is your best path to achieving your dream - a baby. At Genea we’ve been helping people create families for over 30 years.
While creating a baby is complex, it can be quite simple and straightforward to figure out why it might not be happening in your case.
Infertility in women tends to be the situation we hear about most but in fact, issues are evenly split amongst men and women with causes of infertility in couples approximately 40 per cent related to female factors, 40 per cent related to male factors and unfortunately 20 per cent unexplained.

Do you need more information about your fertility and the factors which might be stopping you from conceiving? At our free Fertility Seminars you can hear from a Specialist, ask questions and see the clinic for yourself. Or if you are ready to see a Specialist, check out how to get started through our four Simple steps.
The #1 piece of advice our patients pass on to people trying to conceive is to ask for help earlier. Genea's Fertility Specialists are experts in helping people conceive and seeing one is not a fast track to IVF - in fact we help more than 50% our patients have a baby with fertility treatments other than IVF.
