According to ISS data, infertility affects an estimated 15% of couples and the origin of the problem is traced back to women in 35-40% of cases. Alterations in ovulation, often due to polycystic ovary syndrome, but also risk factors such as advanced age, unhealthy lifestyle and obesity are at the root of the problem.
Severe overweight also limits the chances of conceiving both naturally and through Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). In addition to the psychological damage that affects couples who are unable to have children, infertility has very high social costs, creating a real imbalance in the age of the population.
Our research is our commitment to give effective answers to this individual and social problem.
