7.3 Million US Men and Their Partners Face Fertility Issues
Date:6/16/2010

Attain Fertility Network Doctor Sends Father’s Day Message of Hope

(PRWEB) June 16, 2010 -- As Father’s Day approaches many men are looking forward to gifts of hand-made cards, refrigerator art, and pencil holders made out of milk cartons and dried noodles reflecting the love of their children. And for those men who are trying to become dads, the day may come packed with many mixed emotions as they await and hope for those two magical words, “We’re pregnant!”

Dr. Lowell T. Ku, a reproductive endocrinologist at Attain Fertility Networks’ Dallas IVF practice, understands just how these men feel. He knows firsthand not because he treats so many couples every year, but because he and his wife, who is an OB/GYN, are one of those couples.

In fact, infertility affects about 7.3 million women and their partners in the U.S. – about 12% of the reproductive-age population (Source: National Survey of Family Growth, CDC 2002).

Dr. Ku tells that “when my wife and I started trying to conceive, we bought a beautiful little silver picture frame with a baby bear holding some balloons and the word ‘BABY’ on the bottom of the frame. We placed the frame on our mantle and we looked at it every evening with great anticipation that soon a sonogram photo of our first baby would fill the frame.”

When their efforts continued to produce only frustration Dr. Ku and his wife had every test possible only to be told that everything was “normal”. The Kus are like millions of other couples who cannot pinpoint their cause of infertility. RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association reports that about 40% of all instances of infertility include both partners or are unknown. The remaining 60% are evenly divided between men and women.

Three years passed for the Kus and the picture frame remained empty. Wit
