Who Is To Blame For Infertility?
In most cultures a woman is often blamed when she cannot conceive, overlooking that the man can also struggle with fertility issues. According to experts, 1 in 4 couples in developing countries struggle with infertility. Between 20 and 30 percent of infertility cases are explained by physiological causes in men and between 20 and 35 per cent by physiological causes in women. Between 25 and 40% of cases are due to a problem in both partners and unfortunately, in 10-20 per cent no cause is found. It’s therefore understandable why infertility has been recognised as a public health issue worldwide by the World Health Organization (WHO).
