Infertility - Guide to Infertility & Infertility treatments

Becoming pregnant may sound relatively straightforward thing, but the reality can be somewhat different. There are many couples who are trying for a baby but, for what ever reason, are unable to conceive.

This inability to become pregnant is known as infertility.

Medical experts report that as many as 1 in 6 couples seek help for infertility problems. However, many of those couples report feelings of isolation, depression and frustration which are not always taken into account.
