Fertility screening is a new concept
The Fertility Assessment and Counselling Clinic was initiated in 2011 as an analogue to the family planning clinics in the 1970s, but with a pro-fertility aim. The idea was to provide individual assessment of fertility risk factors, ovarian reserve and sperm concentration to help women and men to fulfil their reproductive life plan. Fertility screening on an individual level is a new concept, and the Fertility Assessment and Counselling Clinic is the first of its kind. The aim of the clinic is to reduce the need for fertility treatments and to prevent involuntary childlessness.
