Why don't we talk about fertility more?

There are several reasons why fertility might not be discussed as openly or frequently as other topics:


  1. Privacy and Sensitivity: Fertility is often considered a private matter, and individuals may be uncomfortable discussing their reproductive health openly due to the sensitive nature of the topic.

  2. Cultural and Social Norms: Different cultures and societies have varying levels of comfort and openness when it comes to discussing fertility. In some cultures, fertility might be a taboo subject, while in others, it might be more openly discussed.

  3. Stigma and Shame: There can be stigma and shame associated with fertility issues, particularly for those struggling with infertility. This can lead to individuals and couples feeling isolated and hesitant to talk about their experiences.

  4. Complexity and Emotions: Fertility is a complex issue that involves medical, emotional, and societal factors. Discussing fertility can bring up a range of emotions, including sadness, frustration, and anxiety, which might make it difficult for some people to talk about openly.

  5. Lack of Education and Awareness: Many people may not fully understand fertility and reproductive health, leading to a lack of awareness and discussion around the topic. Education and awareness campaigns can help to address this issue and encourage more open dialogue.


Despite these challenges, there has been a growing movement in recent years to break the silence surrounding fertility issues and encourage more open and supportive conversations. Organizations and advocacy groups are working to raise awareness, reduce stigma, and provide support for individuals and couples struggling with fertility challenges.


Research Shows, many women have a lack of knowledge when it comes to their fertility


Many women lack comprehensive knowledge about their menstrual cycles and fertility. Understanding the menstrual cycle and fertility can be complex, and misinformation or lack of education can lead to confusion and misconceptions. Here are some reasons why women might not know what constitutes a normal cycle or how to track it effectively:


  1. Lack of Education: Comprehensive sexual education programs vary widely in content and quality across different regions and countries. Many individuals may not receive adequate education about reproductive health, including menstrual cycles and fertility, during their schooling.

  2. Taboo and Stigma: Menstruation and fertility can still be taboo subjects in some cultures, leading to limited discussions and education about these topics. This lack of open dialogue can contribute to misinformation and misunderstanding.

  3. Inaccurate Information: With the proliferation of unreliable sources on the internet and social media, individuals may come across inaccurate or misleading information about menstrual cycles and fertility. This can further contribute to confusion and misconceptions.

  4. Complexity of the Menstrual Cycle: The menstrual cycle involves a complex interplay of hormones and physiological processes. Understanding the nuances of cycle tracking and fertility awareness methods requires knowledge about ovulation, cervical mucus changes, and other factors that influence fertility.

  5. Personal Variation: Every woman's menstrual cycle can vary in length, regularity, and other characteristics. This variability can make it challenging for individuals to identify what is normal for their own bodies.


Despite the challenges and complexities surrounding the topic of fertility, it's crucial to remember that knowledge is power. Understanding your body, menstrual cycle, and fertility can empower you to make informed decisions and seek the support you need.
