Couples trying to conceive for one year should seek further advice and treatment if they are over 35 years.

The advice also applies if there are any additional conditions affecting their health, said Prof Simon Fishel, who is a leading expert in the area of fertility. He will speak at a free information event in Dublin tomorrow evening.

He will focus on the range of treatment options available for those struggling with infertility including, CAREmaps, Array CGH (PGS), Egg Freezing and Fertility Assessments , including a potentially new option for those with recurrent miscarriage or failed IVF ('C4M2').

The talk will take place at the Beacon CARE Fertility centre in Beacon Court, Sandyford, Dublin 18. He said: "The problem of infertility is complex, and although many still mistakenly perceive it as predominantly a female problem, we are seeing a huge of amount of men present with fertility issues also; indeed, with expert assessment we often find problems arising in both couples when it was assumed to be in only one of the partners.

"It is therefore extremely important that both partners are checked."
