Difficulty in having children is more common than you may think, affecting one in six couples. If you are one of those couples, you probably have questions about why your reproduction system is not working properly. Below, two specialists discuss the science and biology of infertility, addressing some of the most common questions.
Fertility Issues & Erectile Dysfunction
Certain men worry about their sperm count, whether or not they are in the process of trying to have a child. Other men might find a low sperm count unimaginable. In reality, a low sperm count is the most common reason for male infertility.
Most of us assume that our ability to have children is secure. After all, procreation is a basic human right, is it not? Well for some, this basic right is not so simple. Infertility can be a painful and confusing experience for couples mentally prepared to have children.
If you have been trying to get pregnant, chances are that you have heard, "just relax and you'll get pregnant." Stress can have a dramatic impact on one's reproductive life. Many women with infertility will share with me that they do not feel like "real women" and are not members of the club who have experienced pregnancy and childbirth.
My wife and I are trying to conceive. She doesn't lubricate naturally from foreplay such as touching her vagina or sucking her nipples. We even watch porn together. I have to perform oral sex to her which she enjoys very much.
The problem is that we cannot use saliva because germs in the saliva can kill the sperms. We also cannot use KY lubricant since it also kills the sperms. We used baby oil (it was suggested in a book) as lubricant. We do not feel anything when we have intercourse because the baby oil is so slippery. What can we do?
I am sixteen years old. I know I shouldnt be having sex but started early. My boyfriend and I want a child but we know I'm too young and not ready for responsibility.
We had sex on the 11th of September and I got off my period the 10th. He ejaculated in me 3 times and we had sex again on the 14th. He ejaculated in me then.
The beauty of STRAW is that you can get a sense of what stage you are in based on your menstrual patterns, symptoms, and the overall characteristics of a stage, rather than just a certain hormone range or chronological age. Looking at the whole picture makes it clearer that reproductive capacity is unique for each individual.
Hello. I am so glad that this service is here for us to use! I hope you can help answer some questions and ease my mind.
Infertility is a condition that affects approximately one out of every six couples. An infertility diagnosis is given to a couple who is unsuccessful with their attempts to get pregnant over the course of one year. When the problem exists within the female partner, it is referred to as female infertility.
Endometriosis occurs when the endometrium lining of the uterus attaches itself to other organs outside of the uterus. According to the Endometriosis Research Center, this disease affects more than 7 million women in the US and is the leading cause of female infertility, chronic pelvic pain and gynecologic surgeries. How is it diagnosed and treated?
