Publisher's Summary

For millions of people, starting a family is a lifelong dream. However, many face challenges in welcoming children into the world. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 12 percent of women in the US from ages 15 to 44 have difficulty getting pregnant or staying pregnant. 

A variety of factors exist that can contribute to infertility, such as ovulation disorders, uterine abnormalities, congenital defects, and a host of environmental and lifestyle considerations. But infertility is not just a female problem. For approximately 35 percent of couples with infertility, a male factor is identified along with a female factor, while in eight percent of couples, a male factor is the only identifiable cause.

Getting Pregnant for Dummies offers up-to-date advice on the current methods and treatments to assist in conception. This guide will help you understand why infertility occurs, its contributing risk factors, and the steps to take to increase the chances of giving birth. 

From in vitro fertilization (IVF) to third party reproduction (donor sperm or eggs and gestational surrogacy) to lifestyle changes to understanding genetic information to insurance, legal and medication considerations, this book covers all the information you need to navigate your way to the best possible results.
