    We need to educate our children’s on this infertility matter so that they have an open mind about it when growing up. Infertility can be experienced by both genders. We tend to blame it on the women because of the belief in the societies. That it is always the woman who is barren. We don’t realize that even put men can be unable to impregnate a woman. It’s so sad how women get traumatized and sad when sometimes it’s their husbands who have low sperm count and are therefore unable to impregnate them. When a couple is unable to have kids, both the partners should get checked before blaming the woman. That is so mythical and outdated in our current society. The world is changing and so should we. We can leave myths and misconceptions behind and start dealing with science and facts.
