Putting an End to the Infertility Blame Game
When it comes to infertility, no one is to blame.
From time to time, patients call in wondering why it is necessary for us to collect their partner’s information when it’s their “fault” that they are not getting pregnant. When a couple has trouble achieving pregnancy, neither is to blame.
What Causes Infertility & Who Is To Blame?
It is important for the couple to remain a team and support each other throughout fertility treatment. Navigating your path to fertility is much easier when you are on the same page as your partner. Fertility treatment can be stressful and overwhelming as it is, and looking for things to “blame” will only add to that stress.
Focus On Support
Fertility is a journey, and it is one that you do not have to take alone. Lean on your partner, your family, your friends and your fertility center for infertility support.
