“One in six Australian couples has infertility problems”

Infertility is the inability of a couple to conceive after a year of unprotected intercourse, or the inability to carry pregnancies to a live birth.

Many couples suffering infertility problems can be successfully treated with lifestyle changes, or medical or surgical interventions. For a fertile couple in their twenties having regular unprotected sex, the chance of conceiving each month is only 25%. Infertility is shared equally among men and women.

Common causes of infertility

Causes of infertility are many and varied and involve male, female or a combination of factors. These include problems with:

  • the production of sperm or eggs
  • hormonal and immune conditions
  • sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia

Healthy bones for everybody

Healthy bones for everybody

Bone health is important at any age, but if you’re over 50 it’s a priority. Both family history and lifestyle factors have an effect on bone health, and so it is important to make bone health a priority in your life. The burden of poor bone health is enormous both in terms of its impact on quality of life and costs to the health care system:

  • Over 1 million Australians are affected by osteoporosis.
  • Over 6 million Australians have low bone density, which is a possible precursor to osteoporosis.
  • One in three Australians has poor bone health.
  • In Australia there is currently one bone broken every 3.6 minutes due to poor bone health. That’s 395 broken bones per day. By 2022 there will be one fracture every 2.9 minutes.
  • One in three people with osteoporosis are men.

Our bones support us and allow us to move. They protect our brain, heart, and other organs from injury. Our bones also store minerals such as calcium and phosphorous, which help keep our bones strong, and release them into the body when we need them for other uses. Read More >
