Infertility

Did you know that 7-9% of people in Canada are infertile? Roughly 1/3 is caused by men, 1/3 by women and the other 1/3 is by a combo. Infertility is a daily struggle for couples and some single women. It is scary how common it is- whether caused by stress, hormones or a host of other issues.  i had no issue conceiving my little monkey, but I am worried about the future. There are quite a few women who had no problem getting pregnant the first time.

 I got these stats from here- http://www.womenshealthdata.ca/category.aspx?catid=139&rt=1
