    Waiting for that second line to appear on a pregnancy test can feel like the longest three minutes of your life. If you wait month after month with no results, it’s easy to feel demoralized. One of the most persistent and harmful myths about fertility issues is that fertility is a matter of luck. If you’re unlucky enough to be infertile, then it’s untreatable without costly procedures that are unlikely to work anyway.

    It’s a scene that plays out in thousands of homes every month -- a ritual, of sorts: the home pregnancy test.

    Trying to get pregnant is an exercise in deep and intense emotions. In the first few months, you may feel excited and overwhelmed. Perhaps you even begin shopping for the nursery or stocking up on baby clothes. After all, the baby will be here soon, right? Yet for many couples, this excitement eventually gives way to frustration, and even demoralization. About 15% of couples struggle with infertility, even after a year or longer of trying to get pregnant. Advice about infertility often focuses on the woman. But in at least 20-30% of cases, the issue is solely with the man. And in 20-30% more, there’s an issue with both the man and the woman.

    People considering fertility treatments often focus on in vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF can be highly successful for the right person, but it’s also expensive. Intrauterine insemination (IUI) offers a success rate of 10-20% per cycle. This makes it a highly effective treatment, and one that is much more affordable than IVF. For couples with unexplained infertility and some other fertility issues, it’s a great option. Moreover, because it’s more affordable, most families can pursue several cycles of IUI, increasing the odds of a successful pregnancy without breaking the budget.
