CONCEIVING:15 per cent of couples have problems
The Fertility Assisted Reproduction Centre at the HC Marbella Hospital seeks to provide the most efficient therapeutic method of achieving pregnancy
45% infertility problems have a feminine cause; another 45% are attributable to the man while the rehaznos for the remaining 10 per cent are unknown
Due to be frequency, sterility has been recognised by the World Health Organisation as a public health problem because an estimated 15 percent of couples of reproductive age have problems conceiving. Embryologist María José Figueroa explains that “the main objective of the Fertility Centre at the HC Marbella Hospital is to provide the therapeutic solution which is the most efficient for the needs of the patient, as well as offering psychological and environmental assistance to attain success and achieve a pregnancy”.
Statistics show that 45 per cent of infertility problems have a feminine cause; another 45% are attributable to the man while the reasons for the remaining 10 per cent are known. María José Figueroa says the problem may have increased because of the tendency to postpone having children and unhealthy lifestyle habits.
The ovule donation programmes have been designed for women who for different reasons cannot conceive, because their ovaries lose the ability to produce the healthy eggs which are essential for the implantation and development of a gestation. “In these situations, the reception of eggs from donors is the only way the women can become mothers”, explains the specialist in assisted Human Reproduction.
