Approximately 11% of individuals of reproductive age experience infertility, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Despite being somewhat common, patients who encounter infertility can still experience relationship strain, sadness, worry, anger, and feelings of inadequacy or withdrawal. These symptoms can have serious adverse effects on the relationships between individuals, couples, and families.
