Why Your Fertility?

Most Australians want to have children. However, about one in six couples has difficulty conceiving and the use of IVF is increasing. About 35,000 women per year in Australia and New Zealand go through the emotional rollercoaster of IVF treatment.

We want you to have the facts, so you can make informed and timely decisions about your reproductive health. That way, you can maximise your chances of conceiving and having a healthy baby – whether that’s now or down the track.

Who is Your Fertility?

Your Fertility is brought to you by the Fertility Coalition: Victorian Assisted Reproductive Treatment Authority, Andrology Australia, Jean Hailes for Women’s Health and The Robinson Research Institute.

Your Fertility is a national public education program. It was initially funded by the Australian Government Department of Health. The Victorian Government Department of Health continues to provide funding to support this initiative.
