Sex Q&A


Can your association give me some information about subfertility?

A couple is considered 'subfertile' when they fail to conceive within one year of regular, unprotected sexual intercourse. Subfertility can be due to various causes. Statistics show that female and male factors account for about two-third and one-third of the cases respectively. But some couples have unexplained subfertility. Causes of female subfertility include ovulatory disorders, blockage of fallopian tubes, abnormalities of the uterus, hormone disorder and psychological factors etc. Causes of male subfertility include low sperm count, presence of sperms with morphological defects and low motility, blockage of the vas deferens, varicocele, abnormalities of the testes and psychological factors. For more information on subfertility, you are welcome to visit our Activity and Resource Centre (ARC) located on 8/F, Southorn Centre, 130 Hennessy Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong. The ARC provides interactive games, exhibits and access to books and audio visual resources on topics such as sexuality education, sexual and reproductive health, family life education, etc.
