The conversation surrounding infertility has long revolved around a woman’s fertility problems, leaving relatively little space for discourse on male infertility. This has led to a common misconception that women’s reproductive issues are largely the root of couple’s infertility.
Starting the IVF process can seem like an emotional rollercoaster, however, with the proper support, it doesn’t have to be! Although each person’s journey to IVF is unique, countless individuals and specialists have documented the practice itself, the result being an overwhelming amount of information on what to expect and how best to prepare for IVF.
Despite common misconceptions surrounding fertility problems, issues in conception arise roughly 30% from females, 30% from males, and the remaining third from a combination or unexplained infertility. That being said, unexplained infertility is becoming less and less labelled as a cause as fertility specialists’ understanding of the subject expands with time.
