In some cultures, the inability to become pregnant leads to shunning from the people of the same culture. In African women, being unable to conceive a child can lead them into a personal exile. These women are turning to fertility treatments in order to cure the need for a child.
Researchers are studying the effects of fertility treatment centers in a culture where infertility can lead to male and female suicide. These fertility clinics are not only aiming to help women to conceive but are dispelling the myths surrounding infertility. In at least 50% of the cases, the male is the one who is triggering the inability to conceive. But, in African cultures, the women are often placed at blame for the inability to produce children.
This blame can reach so far that men will divorce their wives for the inability to have children.
