More than 90% of male infertility cases are due to low sperm counts, poor sperm quality, or both. The remaining cases of male infertility can be caused by a range of conditions including anatomical problems, hormonal imbalances, and genetic defects. For about one in five infertile couples the problem lies solely in the male partner.

Thinking About Using Donor Sperm? Sperm donation is an effective treatment used by many couples around the world.
A couple may need to explore the donor sperm option if a man is not producing any sperm or the sperm quality is low, if a couple has been through IVF but have had no fertilization. Also, if there are medical reasons, if for example a man has a genetic disorder that he may pass on to a child, and of course there are other reasons such as when a single woman or same sex couple want to try for a child.
Greece is a very popular place to travel to for IVF treatment because of its laws, prices and high success rates. Many couples also come to Greece because egg donation is anonymous plus the cost of IVF and Egg Donation in Greece is more reasonable than in most of other countries.
The ability to store sperm, eggs and embryos is an important part of assisted conception, but until recently the science of egg cryopreservation was not well developed and not as successful as Cryopreserving sperm and embryos. However, recent developments have improved both the survival of eggs and the chance of achieving of pregnancy.
IVF (In vitro fertilization) is the fertilization of eggs outside the body. It was first carried out successfully in humans in 1977 and has now become a routine process for treating couples who are unable to conceive naturally.
IVF consists of many steps, which are outlined below:
Male infertility refers to a male's inability to cause pregnancy in a fertile female and it accounts for 40-50% of infertility. It has many causes, from genetic and/or medical abnormalities to lifestyle issues. A man’s fertility reflects his general health.

Ovarian failure is considered premature when it occurs in women < 40 yrs of age and accounts for 10 % of secondary amenorrhoea which means failure of occurrence of menstruation in women for 6 months or longer in women who have previously menstruated.
Surrogacy affords the opportunity of a dream-come-true for couples and individuals hoping to become parents but face the burdens of infertility or other health issues which make pregnancy and delivery dangerous or impossible. It enables you to welcome a child into the world who is truly your own and continue the miracle of your family lines.

Australian women in their late 40s and even 50s desperate for a baby are increasingly traveling to Greece and Spain to get pregnant. When women travel to Greece, they pay about $7600 for a donated egg and an in vitro fertilisation procedure, a third of the price to go through similar treatment with a donated egg in Australia. Many women also make the trip because in Australia they are unable to receive donated eggs that cannot be traced.
