Fertility Both men and women may suffer from issues with fertility that can prevent or make it difficult to conceive. Infertility is a complicated issue and there is plenty of myth and misinformation about the various conditions that may cause it. It is therefore vital to access information from reliable sources. There is a range of fertility treatments available in the UK but you may still need financial assistance due to a decline in NHS funding. Some of the charities below can help to provide funding for fertility treatment. It is also important to consider the psychological impact of infertility. Not being able to conceive can have a debilitating impact on the wellbeing of anyone who wants to become a parent. Some conditions associated with infertility in women may cause miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy and these may be traumatic experiences.
