Fertility questions aren't hard to answer, if you're not afraid to ask the right ones. The most difficult question to ask is, "Is it me?" You feel perfectly normal and healthy. You eat right, you're not under too much stress, and you may have even gotten people pregnant or been pregnant before. The natural instinct is to blame the other person in the couple. Well, there's one way to find out the truth.

There is no shame in infertility. Infertility is, in fact, on the rise. That doesn't mean it's trendy. It just means you're in good company. Running a few tests will answer the most basic of fertility questions. In 40 percent of cases, the infertility occurs in the male. Low sperm count or low sperm mobility are often the trouble. Female infertility is often due to something as simple as fallopian tube blockage. Though that might sound like a nightmare, actually, it's not bad news. There are ways to deal with it.

The simplest way is to cut the fallopian tube out of the equation. In in vitro fertilization (IVF), doctors extract eggs from the ovaries and fertilize them in the lab. They are then implanted into the uterus. The long trip through the fallopian tubes is unnecessary. A normal, healthy pregnancy is the IVF result. Doctors have been performing IVF procedures since 1978. Success rates are high. IVF gives you very little to worry about and a lot to hope for.
