5th September 2007

A survey has revealed that more than a third of women believe they will have difficulty having a child because they or their partner has fertility problems.

The survey commissioned by Red magazine, also found that many women did not realise that fertility would peak in their 20s and decline sharply from their mid-30s.

However, not all of these problems required treatment.
