Kawana couples seeking IVF and ICSI treatment are not alone. With an estimated one in six Australian couples dealing with infertility, that translates to 203 married couples who are having difficulty falling pregnant.
Kawana Fertility Statistics
In fact, Wikipedia reports that 22,593 people were living in Kawana at the time of the 2011 census. Seeing that 5.4% of the Australian population is married, there are approximately 1,220 married couples in this SunshineCoast town. With 1 in 6 couples experiencing infertility, that means about 203 couples are having a problem. By definition, you are considered to be having a fertility problem if:
- You are below the age of 35 and have been trying for 12 months or more
- You are over the age of 35 and have been trying for 6 months or more
Cut In Government Funding For Fertility Treatment
Due to a cut in government funding between 2009 and 2010, the number of couples pursuing fertility treatment actually dropped 13.4%. This is a big reason why Affordable IVF was founded. We are making it easier and less expensive for Kawana couples to achieve their dream of having a baby. We've streamlined our process for two of the most effective fertility treatments - IVF and ICSI. By limiting our focus to these two treatments, we are able to keep our costs down and thus, we pass those savings on to prospective parents. Your out of pocket costs may be as low as one-third of a full service clinic.
