Infertility is a problem that many women and even some men are forced to deal with. Their plans for starting a family have been put on hold due to medical or physical problems that are beyond their control and that make it difficult for them to get pregnant the natural way.

Thanks to advancements in the medical field there are many options and procedures that people can use in order to seek the help that they need to become pregnant. One of the most common procedure is IVF treatment. During this process the woman’s egg and the man’s sperm is united inside of a lab.

The embryos are then placed into the woman’s uterus through her cervix. It will take a few weeks to know whether or not this process has worked and if the woman was able to get pregnant with it. During this process the woman is undergoing ovulation induction with the help of fertility drugs. The doctors will also keep an eye on her hormone levels.

There are certain conditions and problems that either the man or woman will have to be dealing with in order to know whether or not they are candidates for the IVF treatment.

* A woman is suffering from a more severe form of endometriosis that will affect the ability for her body to fertilize and implant the egg.
* The woman has problems with her fallopian tubes due to blockage or because they are damaged. This can make it hard for the eggs to move to the uterus and to fertilize.
* It can be used when a man has a low sperm count or if the sperm have low mobility.

We, the undersigned call on the UN to consider IVF payment options, on a grand scale, of keeping these costs down for all families wanting to go through or have to go through IVF to become a family. We wish to make this affordable for anyone. It is our fight. Our right. Infertility isn't a choice its an illness.
