Fertility problems are not the best dinner conversations because they involve intimate issues behind closed doors. That is exactly why you can feel free to speak to your fertility specialist about what is really troubling you as a couple, because he/she would be able to talk to you frankly about making babies, with or without sex.
But to get the correct answers, it helps to ask the right questions. Here are answers to some of the most embarrassing questions every couple wants to know – but may be too shy to ask!
Q. Is position xyz more effective in getting pregnant?
Unfortunately not. There is no scientific evidence that any particular sexual position can improve pregnancy. There is, however, a link between frequency of intercourse and chances of pregnancy. Higher frequency relates to a higher probability of pregnancy.

One in six couples face infertility and are in need of fertility treatment . These couples need an IVF ( test tube baby) treatment but are unable to proceed due to financial constraint. As a fertility specialist and father of 3 lovely children, I would like to share the joy a child brings into our lives. Therefore, I wish to help couples requiring IVF treatment to achieve parenthood by organising a fundraising campaign. Let’s give them the joy of parenthood ! We can make a difference in their lives !
This is a pilot project . I believe if WE can come together , we can make this project a success and it will serve as a building block for future larger projects. My target is to collect at least RM20000 , which may help 2 couples to receive an IVF treatment.
I am ” transforming” myself to become a long distance runner as I will be running a half-marathon by the end of the fundraising period.
I hope to inspire YOU into realising that YOU too can help couples struggling with infertility.

“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 .
