NSW Government Provides Funding to Support Thousands of Infertile Australians

June marks World Infertility Awareness Month and in good news for many Australian couples, The NSW Government has announced that it will support women and men accessing IVF and assisted reproductive treatments with a cash rebate of up to $2,000 to reduce treatment costs as part of the State Government’s 2022-23 Budget.[i]

This exciting announcement marks a step forward for thousands of NSW patients who require the support of fertility treatments to conceive, as a staggering one in six couples have difficulties falling pregnant with medical conditions and other factors being the leading cause of fertility issues[ii].

With the increased cost of living pressures, many couples must make financial sacrifices to be able to start a family. This announcement provides hope and an opportunity for Australian couples wanting to conceive.

NSW Government Treasurer, Matt Kean said about one in 20 births in Australia involved some form of assistive reproductive treatment.[iii]

“No one should have to face the impossible choice between looking after their household budget and starting a family. I’m so proud NSW continues to lead the nation, helping thousands fulfill their dreams of having a baby.” Mr Kean said.

While the attention is often placed on the female, statistics show that both men and women hold equal responsibility with one-third of infertility caused by female reproductive issues, one-third caused by male reproductive problems and another one third by both male and female reproductive issues or by unknown factors[iv]. The rate of male infertility is also on the rise; one in 35 men will have a fertility issue, whilst one in 25 males are thought to have low sperm count.

However, there is growing evidence supporting the efficacy of supplements and their potential for mitigating oxidative stress on sperm count and movement and improving the quality of a woman’s eggs.

In an age where oxidative stress is believed to be one of the primary drivers of infertility for men and women, it is important that all people of reproductive age seek professional guidance to ensure that they address factors such as this, which can be mitigated through dietary and lifestyle measures and the prescription of certain supplements such as ubiquinol, a natural antioxidant found in the body.

Ubiquinol helps to protect the body’s cells from damage caused by oxidative stress and free radicals, while supporting cellular energy production levels needed during conception.[v]

There’s no doubt that Government financial support such as this rebate will assist people who are struggling with infertility to be able to explore their options, including natural fertility treatments.

If you think Ubiquinol could assist you, please speak to your healthcare practitioner to learn more about Ubiquinol and how it can help you.
