Reproductive and fertility problems, including low sperm count

Health and Environment logo
The rate at which couples are seeking medical assistance due to infertility is increasing at more than 10% per year

By 1992, sperm quality across the European population was reported to have declined by 50% in the previous 50 years. A recent study of 26,600 men in France showed sperm count had fallen by a third between 1989 and 2005. Furthermore, a Spanish study found that even in young men, sperm concentration was falling by an average of two percent a year.

An estimated one in six couples seeks help in conceiving a child. The demand for treatment in Europe – as expressed in treatment cycles performed in European countries – has increased by 59% in the five years.
