Can healthy couples experience fertility problems?

Sometimes infertility occurs in absolutely healthy couples, in case of their biological or, more precisely, immunological incompatibility. This condition can be revealed using some specific tests, and can be overcomed by using supportive reproduction methods.

Infertility in perfectly healthy and well compatible married couples is called the unclear or unexplained (also called idiopathic) infertility. In many cases this is believed to be a psychogenic condition associated with the particulars of family and sexual relations, or with subconscious (unconscious) reluctance of a woman to have children. In such case the consultation of a family psychologist will be helpful.

New regulations on a visa obtaining procedure in EU countries

The Russian consulates located in Europe take from 3 to 10 business days for the visa processing. In addition, Russian visas issued by the consulates in Europe now have a five day "waiting period" before entering Russia, i.e. person can not come in Russia for at least 5 days after the visa is issued. This rule has been applied sporadically and it seems to largely depend on a consulate. If your travel plans are urgent, we bly recommend you to contact the Russian consulate you plan to collect your visa at and make sure that your visa will be available in time.

The following documents should be submitted to the Russian Embassy or Consulate to obtain visa to enter Russia.
