FIND A CLINIC:
Adelaide residents can take advantage of a free fertility information service on offer in Marion next week.
City Fertility Centre will set up an information booth in the Westfield Marion Shopping Centre from Monday 28 May to Sunday 3 June to answer any of your fertility related questions.
City Fertility Centre Adelaide’s Medical Director Dr Marcin Stankiewicz said that with official figures showing the average maternal age in Australia has now reached 30 years-old*, many people were having more problems falling pregnant.
“Age is one of the top reasons people have problems conceiving. Fertility declines as age increases, women are most fertile in their twenties however due to our change in lifestyle many people are delaying having children until after this age,” Dr Stankiewicz said.
“Of course there are a range of other issues that can impact on fertility as well, including some of the more common ones like endometriosis, ovulation disorders and blockages, however these are mostly treatable.”
The information stand will be manned by nurses and staff from City Fertility Centre and visitors can undertake a free fertility health check in the form of a quiz if they would like.
Free ‘Introduction to Fertility Treatment’ information brochures will also be available covering topics from ‘What is Infertility?’ to ‘Optimising your Chances’ and ‘Possible Treatments’.
The information booth will be located near Mathers from 9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday, 9am to 9pm Thursday and 11am to 5pm on Sunday
