Fascinating read

Owing to the fact that Robert Edwards was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine/Physiology in 2010 for IVF, the theme of the most recent issue of SOMA (a free magazine from Karolinska Universitetssjukhuset) is infertility.

Apparently, 30% of men and 33% of women have fertility problems. I find that surprising because I can only come up with 4 couples that I know personally who don't have children of their own and 2 of those couples didn't meet until the women were in their late 40s or 50s.
