Is infertility a male or female problem?
. In the past, infertility was commonly considered to be solely a female problem. It is now recognized that a couple's infertility is just as likely to stem from problems in the male partner. After couples with infertility undergo testing, about 40 percent of the cases are found to stem from female factors and another 40 percent from male factors.
In 10 percent of couples, infertility factors are found in both the man and woman. In the remaining 10 percent, the infertility remains unexplained after testing.
Because either or both may be involved, it is important to test both the man and woman before starting treatment. No matter what the cause, most treatments require the active participation of both partners.
Hi there! It's usually associated with females mostly. I think it's both. There could be something wrong with the female's uterus, ovaries or tubes. Or with the man's sperm. It's important to remember, in any case, that one should not stop looking for ways to get their kid. There are so many ways now. IVF and surrogacy to name two. Wishing everyone the best.
It's both...Like anyone can be infertile...For example; in my case..I've PCOS and my husband is fine...So, I can't help him get conceived...So, we are having an IVF this year in Ukraine. In most cases, usually, females are infertile.
Infertility is both gender problem. It affects both ways. The treatments are available for both of them. Although, most people think that if a couple isn't having a baby, the woman would have any sort of problem. A lot of relationships break where males aren't ready to get tested and blame females for not conceiving. Whereas, when a husband can support his wife in her tough time, then a wife can also support her husband in his tough time. This is how a marriage succeeds.
Well, infertility is not defined by gender. But I can say that it affects mostly females. That's because men produce sperm regularly. So they can always improve it. But women have only the eggs they are born with. They don't produce eggs in their lives. That's unfortunate.
Hey, Hope you fine with good health and fitness. I'm 24 years old and married happily. I can visit the forum, this can really help me. Doctors diagnose me that I'm infertile. I'm very sad at that time. But, I didn't lose hope. So, me and my husband try to get a good treatment from the clinic. We hear about Lotus clinic that there are very best treatment given for the patients. We're live's in ukraine. This clinic is far from our street. So, We can contact the clinic through messages from phone. But with the couple of days spent. They didn't give us any reply of our several messages. Then, We getting disheart from this clinic. This clinic shows the bad image to the peoples. But, we couldn't lose our hope we will try to search another good clinic for treatment. Can anyone tell me a good clinic.
In past, it was only considered as issues in females but it was at that time also exist in males. At that time there was no proper treatment for it. So all the blame was on females because male hide this from others. Nowadays both male and female are getting treatments. Males are still difficult to handle if they are suffering from infertility. IUI, IVF, and surrogacy are very famous treatments of it. Many couples are getting awareness about it on different forums. So it doesn't remain a problem now. People are getting awareness and they are getting proper treatment for that. There is a clinic in Europe. They are doing a great job by solving people fertility issues. There serviced are less expensive. Many people are moving to Europe for their treatment. So infertility doesn't remain a problem. I hope it will be helpful to you.
Any gender can face infertility dear. Infertility is a major life stressor that affects approximately 10% of U.S. married couples. Infertile women and men have reported experiencing depression, helplessness, and marital strain. Given U.S. society's emphasis on women's role as mothers, it has been suggested that women's lives are more disrupted by infertility than those of men. This hypothesis was supported in a survey of 185 infertile couples and 90 presumed fertile couples. Infertile wives, as compared to their husbands, perceived their fertility problem as more stressful, felt more responsible for and in control of their infertility, and engaged in more problem-focused coping. Infertile husbands experienced more home life stress and lower home life performance than did their wives. These differences were not found for presumed fertile couples. Both infertile and presumed fertile wives experienced more depression, more sexual dissatisfaction, and lower self-esteem than did their husbands. Theoretical and counseling implications of these findings are discussed. Personally, my husband had some issues with fertility but then we got treatment at Bio tex clinic.
