Reproduction is a normal human event that is absolutely necessary for the survival of the human race.
Infertility is therefore not meant to be the normal course of events and will have a cause even though we may not always find one.

Infertility affects at least 20-25% of couples who are of reproductive age. 

This means that at least one in five of the couples you know will be affected by some degree of infertility ! Statistics vary but it would seem that around 35% of men are sub-fertile and at least 2% of men are totally infertile. Furthermore there is a great scientific debate going on just now about evidence suggesting that male fertility is decreasing markedly as a result of modern lifestyles. 

The advent of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and the Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs) have helped several thousand otherwise infertile couples to have children over the last few decades. Even so as many as 10% of couples will be left with an inability to have children because IVF does not work for everyone.

For all these reasons, the number of couples seeking medical attention for infertility related problems has rapidly grown in recent years. This has also provided the push for new home-testing technology which provide the chance for more control, more privacy and also results that are useful if couples find it necessary to involve doctors.

One of the main advantages of home tests is that they will help fertile couples conceive more quickly and they will help others to identify that there might be a problem.
