About Us


Fertility New Zealand is committed to supporting, advocating for and educating all people who face infertility challenges at all stages of their journey and beyond…..

A couple is regarded as infertile when they have not conceived after 12 months of regular unprotected sexual intercourse.

Who is affected by infertility?

The average chance to conceive for a normally fertile couple having regular, unprotected intercourse is approximately 25 percent during each menstrual cycle. In most couples, conception occurs within about 12 months. However, infertility affects about 20% percent of couples of childbearing age – 1 in 5. Infertility is not just a woman’s concern. A problem with the male is the sole cause, or a contributing cause, of infertility in about 40 percent of infertile couples. About one-third of infertile couples have more than one cause or factor related to their inability to conceive. About 20 percent of couples have no identifiable cause for their infertility after medical investigation.

Infertility is a personal, medical, socially complex and heartbreaking issue.  Individuals are confronted by different medical issues preventing them from realising their dream; however, we recognise that many couples experience very similar social and personal issues to each other while trying to achieve this.

FertilityNZ is run by those who have walked the journey and understand.
