Welcome to Your Fertility

We offer the facts about fertility (the ability to have a baby) for people of all genders so that you can make the best possible decisions about having children, considering your unique circumstances.

This website gives you the most current information about what you can do to have children when the time is right for you. It's based on the most up-to-date scientific research and prepared by experts in the field. 

You can find out about how to improve fertility, take the fertility knowledge quiz, download our fact sheets, watch personal stories and videos from experts, and use interactive tools to help you get pregnant.

It’s never too early to find out what you can do now to improve your chances of having children.



Your Fertility recognises that the language used may not reflect terminology that is inclusive of the trans and gender-diverse community. Where we refer to women, this includes all people with a uterus and ovaries requiring reproductive healthcare. Where we refer to men, this includes all people with a penis and/or testicles requiring reproductive healthcare.


Who’s behind Your Fertility?

Five organisations that specialise in reproductive health, men’s health, women’s health, fertility, pregnancy and child health, came together to form the Fertility Coalition.  

The Fertility Coalition includes the Victorian Assisted Reproductive Treatment Authority (VARTA), Healthy Male, Jean Hailes for Women's HealthGlobal and Women's Health at Monash University and The Robinson Research Institute at The University of Adelaide. The content of the website is produced in collaboration with our networks of medical, scientific, academic, health and wellbeing professionals, specialist organisations and with people who share their personal stories. 

Your Fertility is the only national public health promotion program of its kind in Australia. 

Your Fertility was funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and the Victorian Government Department of Health until 30 June 2023, and is currently funded by VARTA.

In 2022, SHV updated these resources to incorporate more contemporary, inclusive language, refreshed information and links to Australian Curriculum 9.0.
