Myth! While it is true that stress can contribute to infertility, infertility is still a physical problem, not a mental one. Sometimes reducing stress can make it easier to get pregnant, but if you truly have an infertility issue, you will need medical help to get pregnant.
Myth! While there are a lot of fertility problems that are due to women’s issues, only about 33 percent of fertility issues are solely female issues. Another 33 percent are a combination of male and female reproductive issues, and the last 33 percent of all fertility problems are directly related to male infertility issues.
Fact! While some fertility treatments are super expensive and can cost thousands of dollars, they aren’t all that way. There are alternative fertility treatments that are very affordable, and even traditional fertility drugs are not crazy expensive anymore. There are also a ton of financial options out there, including payment plans and reimbursement programs.
Myth! While fertility in women drops off sharply after age 35, it is not solely a problem for older women. There are a ton of factors that affect fertility, and age is only one of them. In fact, even a couple in their early 20’s has around a seven or eight percent chance of dealing with infertility.
Fact! Secondary Infertility is actually quite common. Secondary fertility can be really hard to deal with, since it is not always taken as seriously as primary infertility. As many as eleven percent of couples who already have a child will suffer from secondary infertility.
