You Shouldn’t Feel Ashamed Talking about IVF

“You need an IVF ?? ! “

Common reaction from those around you if you ever mention that you need an IVF to get pregnant.

The year is 2018 and yet we do not openly speak about IVF . Infertility and especially male infertility is still buried in shame.

This even happens in western countries such as USA.

Couple should not be ashamed or embarrassed when speaking about the need for fertility treatment, especially an IVF.

We are not ashamed when talking about diabetes or high blood pressure or any other medical condition. In fact we encourage those patients to deal and treat  their illness .

Why can’t we do the same when it comes to infertility ? ??

Wait for my article , in which I will be discussing about this “taboo’ topic of IVF stigma .
