Infertility TreatmentsInfertility is a complex issue, with causes and circumstances that vary with every couple. However, it is a common condition, affecting about 1 in 10 couples in the US. Infertility originates more often with women's reproductive systems, but sometimes can occur with men as well. Women undergo most of the available infertility treatments, since a woman's body is required to carry, grow, and give birth to a child. Same-sex couples can only have a child through donor eggs or sperm and male couples only through surrogacy. Here is a basic outline of infertility treatments, beginning with the simplest and least intrusive options.
