One in four Nigerian couples suffer from infertility – Expert

One in four couples experience delay in achieving conception, a fertility expert, Dr Arati Sohoni has said.

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines infertility as the inability of a couple to achieve conception within one year. Infertility is age related and increases with age.

Dr Sohoni made the disclosure yesterday in Abuja during the fifth anniversary of the Abuja branch of the Nordica Fertility Centre.

She said while infertility was one of the greatest challenges couples face in Nigeria, the problem was further compounded by couples not seeking medical help early. “They wait for three or four years before seeing a doctor,” she said.

The fertility expert advised couples to seek medical help as early as possible, adding that if the wife was more than 35 years old, couples should seek help if they were not able to achieve pregnancy within six months of their marriage.
