Talking To Your Partner About Infertility
posted: Feb. 17, 2023.
Talking to your partner about infertility can be a difficult and emotional conversation. Infertility is a medical condition in which an individual or couple has trouble conceiving a child despite having regular, unprotected sexual intercourse for a year or longer. It affects approximately 10-15% of couples worldwide and results from several factors like ovulation disorders, sperm abnormalities, fallopian tube blockages, and uterine or cervical abnormalities. If you have concerns about infertility, Dr. Anya Rose and Dr. Megan Gau at Rose Women's Health in Arcadia, CA can provide you with peace of mind and assist you with building your family.
