Sterility is a problem that affects 10-17% of the population in reproductive age and it might cause serious psychic and emotional disorders in the couple.
40% of sterility problems are caused by the woman, another 40% by the man and the other 20% for different reasons such as the mucus-semen incompatibility.
After a year’s regular sexual relations without pregnancy it is time to suspect the existence of a problem due to sterility.
From the beginning of the eighties assisted reproductive techniques have been used to help the couple to get over this handicap.
In 1987 “Clínica Ginecológica de Zaragoza”, now “Aísa de Reproducción y Biotecnología”, succeeded the first baby by the method.
Sterility, as with any other pathology, needs a previous study to be diagnosed so as to concrete and solve the problem causing each kind of sterility.
Every possible reason is studied in the male as well as in the female, and after this study another one is done to compare the acceptable application of starting out with some that involve less discomfort.
