Description

In recent years, infertility has become a medical phenomenon that affects more and more adults of reproductive age. In western countries, between 10 and 15 percent of couples are infertile. These couples are victims of a silent human tragedy that can cause major suffering and significantly erode quality of life. This work presents a guide to reproductive difficulties and the medical approaches that can help prevent and treat infertility.

Inside, you will find:

  • The kinds and causes of infertility that affect men and women
  • A thorough look at key treatments, including in-vitro fertilization
  • Prenatal screening and other critical post-conception procedures
  • Health advice for conception and pregnancy
