Infertility Treatment Age To Be Raised In Northern Ireland
Infertile women in Northern Ireland may be permitted to avail treatment till the age of 40, the government is to announce. Health Minister Paul Goggins will reveal that the current age of 38 has been increased to 40.

Couples who already have a child living with them can also get NHS care the new rules say. But they can get only one IVF cycle on the NHS. Mr Goggins said the rules were being changed after a lengthy period of public consultation.

Ovulation problems, tubal disease, male fertility problems and endometriosis are the main causes leading to infertility.
