Alcoy will host the First Conference on Advances in Reproductive Medicine to be held on Thursday, April 5, at 7:00 pm, in the Agora municipal hall
The delay in maternity for work, economic or personal reasons and aggressive treatments such as oncology are the main causes of infertility in women and men.
Today, thanks to the great advances in Reproductive Medicine, it is possible to preserve fertility in order to decide when is the right time to start a family. Specialists recommend in these circumstances to preserve the fertility that is possible today.
It must be taken into account that from the age of 35, fertility decreases, and after 40 years, 75% of the ovules have some genetic alteration, which increases the probability of abortions by 40%. Similarly, the quality of semen has dropped by 40% in both concentration and mobility due mainly to unhealthy living habits, smoking, alcohol consumption and environmental factors.

With the aim of publicizing the latest techniques with which we currently have, the center of the Vistahermosa Hospital in Alicante will hold the First Conference on Advances in Reproductive Medicine, on Thursday, April 5, at 7:00 p.m. in the Agóra hall in Alcoy , with the collaboration of the Department of Health of the City of Alcoy and promoted by the Chair of Reproductive Biomedicine of the Miguel Hernández University.
