More and more Americans seem to be struggling with infertility these days. Is this a matter of increased awareness? Certainly, more people are talking openly about their struggles than ever before. But can the numbers really be chalked up to less stigma around the conversation of infertility.
On this week’s episode, host Eloise Drane dives into what the science says about the increase in fertility issues in the United States. Studies point to an alarming decline in the average male’s sperm count and quality. More women are struggling with PCOS, fibroids, and undefined infertility. Eloise examines the issue from all angles: are environmental toxins to blame? Are these infertility issues due to people waiting until an older age to try having children? What about the economy and the overall declining birth rate? Join us for a robust discussion about the state of infertility today, and what there is to be done about it.
