Some additional facts about infertility.


Infertility clinics are growing fast these days. Scientifically there are many reasons behind infertility. Low sperm count, quality of sperm, hormonal imbalance, lifestyle factors (smoking and drinking), physical conditions and age are these. But if the couples are aware of certain things, this problem will not hurt them any more I think.

1.Late pregnancy: Late pregnancy in the sense the long gap after marriage before trying to conceive. All doctors suggest that the first pregnancy should be immediately after marriage. There are many reasons behind it. But most of us holdup it for our conveniences. In between this gap many artificial contraceptive methods are used and after all the result become infertility.

2. Society pressure: Society views such couples in a different view point. Try to understand that it is not our skill getting a kid without any problems but it is our good luck. So don’t try to interfere them with unwanted questions.

So what I am tried to say is that try for the first baby immediately and the gap between first and second child can be 3 or 4 years. If we follow the doctors advise in this case, a limit of infertility cases can be reduced. And the other problems, certainly we have to consult doctors.

The image given above is just an imagination.

hi susan
well, a really relevent topic to write on.... it's very true that infertility is on the increase...
in my family too, i have seen many cases of infertility...
it's very important that these couples shud be treated with love, they are already in pain and on top of that family and friends pressurize them to the point of driving them crazy....

gr8 post.. you forgot to add stress factors that may lead to low hormone levels.. plus the food we eat (perhaps more so in India) which may contain chemical contaminants can lead to genetic mutations and thus.. infertility.

keep up the good work!
