What We Know

Infertility is the inability to conceive after one year of trying. About 12% of women up to 44 years old have difficulties getting pregnant with their partners or have trouble carrying to term. Of the couples struggling with infertility, 35% of them have male and female factors that contribute to infertility [1].

How It Affects Our World

It can be agreed that infertility has a sense of traumatic experience related to it. Through this, different emotions can surface such as anxiety, depression, and grief. In addition, self-worth and self-image can be negatively impacted. As a couple goes through treatments to help with infertility, they may find themselves on an emotional roller coaster between optimism and hopelessness. All this can begin to change one’s perspectives of life itself [2].
