According to Huang Hefeng, director of the Zhejiang reproductive medical center, factors like heavy workloads, stress, environmental pollution and unhealthy lifestyles are associated to a rising infertility level, reports the China Daily.

When a couple having regular sex couldn't conceive within a year, they are diagnosed with infertility, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

The organization expects infertility and sterility to be the third most serious diseases worldwide in the 21st century, after cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

Huang urged the patients to go to see the doctor as soon as possible, instead of seeking various so-called folk remedy.
