With recent statistics published by the Central Statistics Office indicating that the age profile of natural female fertility declines quite rapidly as we age, showing a 90% success rate in your thirties with a noticeable and rapid decline by the age of 45 to 1.5%, this coupled with an increasing trend currently at 5.6%* for first time mothers in their 40’s, never has it been so vital to ensure your reproductive and sexual health. Infertility isn’t a choice, however the treatments for it should be and at Inhealth.ie we are here to help you navigate your way through the fertility minefield through to parenthood.

Fertility Aids & Fertility Lubricants
Intercourse on demand around ovulation can often lead to anxiety, stress and increased vaginal dryness,however a fertility supportive lubricant system or fertility aid will enable couples trying to conceive (TTC) the use of lubricants that have been medically researched and approved that are both pH and osmolality matched to semen during ovulation. The use of personal and often acidic lubricants while ovulating may damage sperm motility. The continous use of personal lubricants will work against the vagina’s naturally acidic environment which maintains a natural defence against infection, effectively supporting infections such as Bacterial Vaginosis, and creating a unhealthy environment for the sperm and the couples reproductive health.
