You’re trying to have a baby, and it’s not happening. You’ve likely been trying everything to conceive, from in vitro fertilization to scheduling sexy times to changing your diet.
Women all over the world face infertility, often for reasons unknown. More than 80 million people globally and 10%-15% of couples of reproductive age face the distressing reality of being unable to conceive a child (1, 2). Infertility transgresses socio-economic status, culture, and race. While as many men are infertile as women, some communities attribute the problem to women without evidence to the contrary (2). This is, of course, a systemic problem that deserves its own investigation.
