Abstract

Infertility has a major impact on the lives of a significant number of people. Within the United Kingdom it is estimated that 1 in 6 couples are unable to have children. Globally that figure is put at 1 in 10 with up to 25% of couples unable to have a second child. For many couples a diagnosis of infertility can lead to despair. The arduous nature of the diagnostic and treatment procedures, the social stigma and psychological scarring that may follow the discovery of infertility means that the utmost care and assistance is needed in helping people with this problem. This book is written for the many couples who, following a diagnosis of infertility, desperately want a clear, well informed and comprehensive account of the problems of infertility and the help and services available. It is also aimed at the many professionals who, though involved with infertility and spacialists in their own area, lack the overall picture.
