Infertility is simply the inability to conceive after more than one year of unprotected sexual intercourse. It is also the inability to retain pregnancy.
Here in Nigeria, and may be elsewhere, there’s a myth that infertility is solely a woman’s problem. When a couple is unable to conceive, the woman is always to blame, and is readily labeled ‘barren’. The men rarely imagine themselves as being a part of the problem. So, in most cases, they sit back doing nothing, while the women do the running around, seeking solution, just so as to save her marriage. For in some cases, where the solution isn’t forthcoming, the women get thrown out of the marriage, or a second wife is brought in.
Again, where the woman is not blamed, spiritual factors are assumed to be responsible. Because of our tendency to be hyper spiritual or superstitious in this part of the world, witches and wizard are assumed to be responsible for infertility challenges among couples. And so without the benefit of undergoing medical examination to ascertain the cause, many couples go from one prayer/spiritual houses to another. While this may not be entirely false, the tragic thing is that many cases of infertility have nothing to do with spiritual causes or witches and wizard.
Our fore fathers may be excused for their wrong assumptions due to illiteracy and ignorance. But it is unfortunate that many people still hold on to this misconception even in this 21st century where information is readily available at the press of a button.
Today, medical science has debunked this wrong notion. It has shown us that infertility problems are caused by:
- female factors in 1/3 of cases
- male factors in 1/3 of cases
- unknown factors for the remaining 1/3 of cases.
So, the above information shows that women are not entirely to blame for infertility problems. The men also have a hand in the matter. For this reason, the men should be involved in seeking solution to infertility problems.
Again, the info above shows that 2/3 or 66% of infertility cases are traceable to both the men and women, which are very likely to be medical problems, while only 1/3 of the cases are credited to unknown factors. These unknown factors may be spiritual problems, as the case may be.
So, it is common sense to first undergo medical examination to ascertain causes of infertility. Where the medical science fails, one may then resort to seeking spiritual help, as the case may be. Research has shown that 65% of those who seek medical help with regards to infertility problems were eventually able to have successful pregnancy.
