KUWAIT CITY, Feb 8: According to Head of the Fertility Medicine Unit at the New Jahra Hospital Consultant Dr. Hazem Al-Rumaih, the rate of infertility in Kuwait does not differ from other countries in the world, as it is about 15 percent, which means 15,000 out of every 100,000 men and women are expected to suffer from infertility. In a press statement issued yesterday, Dr. Al-Rumaih explained that male diseases are the most common reason behind fertility problems in men, and ovulation and blockage of the fallopian tubes are the reason for fertility problems among women. A change in lifestyle, eating fast food, lack of exercise, use of modern technology in life, smoking, and the use of hormones by young people negatively affect fertility rates.

The Fertility Medicine Unit at the New Jahra Hospital will organize three workshops on male diseases and surgeries, hysteroscopy, and advanced and specialized check-ups over three days from February 8 to February 10, as part of the activities of the 26th Annual Conference of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Dr. Al-Rumaih affirmed that the workshops will host several international experts to discuss complex cases and participate in performing advanced surgeries for male diseases and hysteroscopic surgeries, in addition to providing lectures and giving technical opinions for the treatment and diagnosis of some complex cases.
