is infertility a common problem to us, women and might be to men as well?


yen - September 3

uhmmm... aha.... i know for sure that it is commonly known us women, i just don't know about the men...


margie - September 3

well, i would agree with yen, almost all of my girl friends have that common probs.

yes, about 10% of women or 6.1 million in the US ages 15-44 have difficulty getting pregnant or even staying pregnant. that's a study shows according to CDC.


phoebe - September 3

yeah, infertility is a common problem usually badly treated...


marci - September 3

i don't think so, maybe it was just statistically but majority isn't that way!

about 1 in 10 couples are sub-fertile, it's an estimation. the inability to conceive after 2 years of trying. darn, ain't a great feeling of having a family.

oh my! well, it is actually a very common problem like for women, this is actually caused by inflammation of fallopian tube, ovulation disorders and could be an early menopause.


dorphie - September 3

this isn't going to be common only for women, it is definitely applicable to men too. certain causes are improper shape and movement of the sperm, no sperms in the testicles, low sperm count, having varicocele and
undescended testicle.

hey man, additional to that is the deficiency of testosterone, some infection and even problems in ejaculation. uhhh, that's too much for men.
what i thought before was actually wrong. men can be one big problem for couples who can't have child.


betsy - September 3

that would actually answers the question if infertility is only for women, it's both sides. about one third of men have this kind of problem too.


loyd - September 3

men could also be infertile when they have other damage to their reproductive system block the sperm. sometimes a man is born with the problems that affect his sperm. sometimes, this trigger when a man is having a problem of past illness or injury like cycstic fibrosis.


girl2woman - September 3

this would be a nice topic to open up... i would definitely make a thread of this about men since my husband has this kind of problem...


felicia - September 7

yes of course, infertility is an issue that is common slightly suffered by both men and women in generally. and mind you, this is a common problem to married couples as well.
