Fertility treatment isn't something people want, or imagine they'll have to turn to. But as infertility figures surge to what the World Health Organisation (WHO) calls a "global public health issue", the reality is that 1 in 10 people (men and women) you know will need it.
This week is National Infertility Awareness Week in the US, which aims to help demystify what infertility is, what causes it and how to try to prevent it.
As part of our mission to improve support and people's experiences of fertility treatments, each day this week we'll be releasing a quick-fire video that answers a "Fertility FAQ", based off Google's most commonly searched questions about fertility.
We'll post each Q&A video here as the week unfolds:
Fertility FAQ 1:
"How common is infertility?"
Fertility FAQ 2:
"Why is infertility so common and on the rise?"
Fertility FAQ 3:
"Does egg freezing hurt?"
Fertility FAQ 4:
"What causes infertility?"
