Infertility is failure to get pregnant after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse and there is no other possible reason for infertility like lactational amenorrhea (temporary postnatal infertility that occurs when a woman is not menstruating and breastfeeding her baby).
Infertility affects up to 15% of couples trying to conceive and have a baby. It can be of two types, primary infertility and secondary infertility. Primary infertility is when a couple is unable to have a child. Secondary infertility is failure to conceive following a previous pregnancy. Infertility may be caused by infection in the man or woman, but often there is no obvious underlying cause.
So, if you are unable to conceive even after trying for more than 12 months, it is important that you get yourself and your spouse tested. This will help you determine the possible problems that are making conception difficult. Only when you have identified the underlying issues, you can work towards considering the possible treatments for infertility.
When dealing with infertility, both men and women may undergo emotional & psychological changes and also experience depression. Therefore, it is recommended that the couples should choose the option of treatment which can help in conception naturally and holistically. Homeopathy is one such natural treatment, which has shown positive results in treatment of infertility.
