Approximately every fifth couple in fertile age in Finland has experienced involuntary infertility.
Infertility describes the situation when pregnancy has not been induced within a year after ending contraception, even though there has been regular intercourse. Infertility can be caused by disorders as often in women (e.g. fallopian tube disorders) as in men (e.g. sperm disorders). Unhealthy ways of life, such as heavy smoking and alcohol use, and some primary diseases can lead to decreased fertility.
