Advanced Fertility Solutions for Patients Unable to Conceive
There’s no question that infertility issues can have a major impact on couples trying to conceive. The emotional toll has the potential to cause serious strife, and in the case of this couple in Tennessee who faced extended infertility issues, could even cause partners to go their separate ways. Infertility is a common condition that affects many couples in the United States, but doesn’t necessarily get the attention that it deserves.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, six percent of women under the age of 44 are unable to get pregnant after a year of trying. About 12 percent of women aged 15–44 will have trouble but will eventually conceive. This isn’t just a female issue either. The CDC estimates that as much 7.5 percent of men under the age of 45 with sexual experience had gone to a fertility specialist to assess their condition.
There are so many different issues for women and men that could potentially cause infertility. In addition to aging, smoking, and excessive alcohol use, endometriosis and polycystic ovarian syndrome can potentially affect fertility for women. Besides lifestyle concerns, men could have fertility issues due to varicoceles, diabetes, cystic fibrosis, testicular malfunction, and trauma, among others.
Any couple under the age of 35 who has tried getting pregnant for over a year and any couple over 35 who has tried for six months should seek the health of fertility specialists who can offer advanced fertility solutions.
