Over the past few years, almost all the countries have been observed to have a steady decline in the fertility rate. And in India, the infertility is worse than most other nations. A recent survey has observed that many couples are resorting to artificial methods of conception because of this reason.

This steady decline has started in India approximately a decade and a half ago.  A steady decline of 17 percent every year from 2000 has been observed.  One of the recent statistics shows that over 10% of our population suffers from fertility problems. Considering the amount of population India has (more than 1.2 billion), it is quite a huge number.

FACTORS OF DECLINE

The causes for the fertility issues are many, and the fundamental reasons come down to changes in lifestyle, physical and mental stress, and late marriages. According to a survey in 2013, poor sperm count (41 percent) played a major role in male infertility; female infertility was caused mainly by polycystic ovarian disorder or PCOD (40 percent)
