 INFERTILITY  Holistic-online.com

Welcome to Infertility Infocenter in Holisticonline.com!

Infertility is defined as the failure to conceive after a year or more of regular sexual activity during the time of ovulation. An estimated one in every five couples (men and women equally) in the United States experiences infertility. Infertility is not a disease. Rather, it is a symptom that something is preventing the reproductive processes from working properly, and needs treating. We will cover the causes, how infertility is diagnosed, and options available to you  both with conventional medicine and alternative and mind-body medicine.
