When Procreation and Recreation Collide: Couples and Intimacy During Infertility Treatment
As people wait longer to marry and start families, the incidence of infertility has risen. But, even young couples sometimes struggle with infertility. There are sexual problems that cause infertility, including vaginismus and delayed ejaculation. Infertility can also create sexual difficulties, especially low desire. There are also emotional problems, such as sadness and defeat, that can make it difficult for couples to relate to each other. In this program, Dr. Buehler will talk about the relationship and sexual difficulties related to infertility.
