Baby after fertility problems induces couples to stay together
According to a new research, women who faced infertility problems, followed by a baby are more likely to stay together with their couples. The results of this study are published in Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Sandinavica. Fertility issues are considered to have both psychological and physical impacts on the partners but affect more women. But other studies prove that fertility issues could also make partners to stay together.
The lead author of this study is Trille Kristina Kjaer with the Unit of Survivorship at the Danish Cancer Society Research Center in Copenhagen, Denmark. “Our study investigated if women who did not have a child after a fertility evaluation were likely to end the relationship with that partner”, said Dr. Kjaer.
There were 47,515 woman examined for infertility, between 1990 and 2006. The average year of women was 32 years. The final results prove that 57% of women gave birth to a child prior to infertility treatment, while 43% didn`t give birth to a child.
