Founder of NOW-fertility, explains the difference between subfertility and infertility, and why people often confuse the two when facing fertility challenges.

• Nardo: Infertility is when a couple has no chance of getting pregnant, so most cases are subfertile

• 70 - 75% of couples trying to get pregnant within 12 months would conceive, the minority (20 - 25%) face fertility problems
