Abstract:

Management of infertile couples should focus on the effects of their professional environment and quality of life, such as stress, smoking, alcohol, weight, diet, and the use of electronic devices. It should also focus on reducing these negative factors and improving the couples’ quality of life in conjunction with assisted reproduction treatments. The challenge for human reproduction now, and in the decades to come, is to introduce the concept of “ecofertility” in our practices. Early education and prevention are essential to preserve fertility.
