Infertility may be a more common medical condition than you think. Tens of thousands of American women experience difficulty conceiving in the U.S.

A survey conducted by Merck in 2009 that assessed how infertility affects both women and men – individually and as couples – revealed the common thoughts and emotions faced by those experiencing infertility:

*Participants don’t think infertility can happen to them: A majority of 585 participants surveyed (65%) didn’t realize fertility could be a problem when they wanted to conceive

*Participants wish they had tried to get pregnant sooner: Half (51%) of 585 participants surveyed trying to get pregnant agreed they may have waited too long to start trying

*Participants try to keep their infertility a secret: Six in 10 (61%) of 585 participants surveyed hid their infertility problems from friends and family

As hard as it is to deal with the emotional barriers and take the first step towards addressing infertility, 91% of 57 participants in the survey seeing a fertility specialist wish they had gone sooner.

Once couples learn that The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) guidelines recommend that if you’re over 35 years of age and have been trying unsuccessfully to conceive for six months, or under 35 and have been trying for a year it may be time to have a fertility evaluation, they may be interested in seeing a specialist. Merck’s www.FertilityGuide.com can test your infertility knowledge, find a specialist in your area and provide a discussion guide for when you take that first step to see a doctor.
