Pregnancy is one of the most life-changing experiences a couple can go through but for some people, having a baby is an unachievable goal. Around 5 percent of couples in the UK are infertile and fertility treatment is not always effective. Infertility may be caused by many different factors; however, medical problems are usually the source of the problem. Infertility can affect both men and women and lifestyle factors can play their part as well as health problems; heavy drinking, regular smoking and eating unhealthily can all reduce fertility.
If you are suffering from infertility, you may be able to get fertility treatment on the NHS; this usually involves taking fertility drugs or doing cycles of IVF; the results are not guaranteed but there is around 30 percent chance of success.
If you are really distressed by the appearance of excess hair, you may want to consider getting laser hair removal but it is advisable to wait until you’ve had your treatment. Similar treatment is available to remove tattoos; many women find that when their skin stretches during pregnancy this can make their tattoos look unattractive; tattoo removal by means of laser is safe and effective and is also relatively painless.
