Prevention of fertility problems

Impaired fertility is a national scourge. In some cases, involuntary childlessness is due to genetic defects or disorders, but environmental impact and lifestyle also play an important role. Therefore, it makes sense to look at what you can do yourself to prevent fertility problems.

Environmental impact

It is well known that some chemicals can affect fertility, but their use is generally well regulated in Europe.

Lifestyle

The Danish Council on Disease Prevention has prepared a number of tips which can contribute to preserving your fertility, but they may not necessarily prevent impaired fertility.

  • Age: Fertility decreases with age and women are recommended to have their first child while they are in their 20s
