Starting or growing your family can be stressful, especially when getting pregnant is difficult or when miscarriage is recurrent. In Canada, 32% of couples experience fertility issues, which may be attributed to ovulation disorders, pelvic inflammatory disease, irregular periods, endometriosis, thyroid hormone dysregulation, poor sperm quality, low sperm count, erectile dysfunction and other disorders.
