You Are Not Alone
Infertility is more common than we think. In fact, the American Urological Association (AUA) reports that 15% of couples are unable to conceive after one (1) year of unprotected intercourse. If you and your spouse are experiencing infertility, know that there is hope for the infertile couple.
The first step in addressing infertility struggles is reviewing all the options and choices you have. We’ve summarized important information to consider before moving forward in this blog article. For Christian-based medical reproductive support, we recommend educating yourself. NaPro Technology and the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System are wonderful resources to explore.
Assisted Reproductive Technologies
Some examples of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) are in vitro fertilization, surrogacy, and artificial insemination. During in vitro fertilization, selective fetal reduction is often required, necessitating the abortion of multiple children to lower the risk of pregnancy complications. In surrogacy, women who serve as the surrogates can be at risk of exploitation or suffer forced abortion if the child is discovered to have health problems.
