Running out of eggs before meeting mr. right?

May 30, 2019

In May ReproUnion co-organised the Life Cycle Symposium at Lund University where Anders Nyboe Andersen, professor at the Fertility Clinic, Rigshospitalet, presented results from the ReproUnion Fertility Counselling activities under the above heading.

The symposium addressed the societal and health related consequences resulting from a negative fertility trend influenced by couples postponing family planning. Aleksander Giwercman, professor of reproductive medicine at Lund University also addressed this at the seminar: “The age of parenthood is increasing with the sad consequence that an increasing number of women and men are experiencing infertility problems”.

Michael Eisenberg, professor in Urology at Standford University presented his studies showing that older fathers can result in children with increased risk of diseases and that infertility related problems can be associated with a higher risk of illnesses such as heart attacks, diabetes and high blood pressure.

The scientists discussed how to turn around the trend and encourage healthy reproduction – in a panel discussion with local politicians, Gilbert Tribo and Anna Mannfalk.

The seminar was covered by the Swedish press, including Aftonbladet.
