Statistics from different countries show a growing number of couples are postponing their decision to have children for several reasons. These may lie in career development or other life goals that influence their family planning. In Slovenia, every sixth couple is having difficulties conceiving, while on an international level it is estimated that every seventh couple is experiencing difficulties conceiving. Apart from age, there are several other factors causing a decline in fertility rate among men and women. These include environmental factors such as endocrine disruptors, and lifestyle factors such as eating habits, sleep habits and physical activity. According to data from the World Health Organization, the criteria for the normative quality of semen are getting lower with every year, which implies the reproductive ability of the human race is declining.
