Research has revealed that coping with infertility is as difficult as coping with terminal diseases like Cancer and HIV. The social pressure to start a family and have kids, make the situation even more difficult.
Why women are the worst victims?
Infertility is not only a woman’s problem. Men can be infertile to. In fact, in nearly 50% couples failing to conceive, suffer due to the male factor. But again, it is the social belief that, since a woman delivers a child, only she is to be blamed for not conceiving. It is often seen, that the husband or the male partner is reluctant to even undergo an infertility test.
