My doctor first checked my earlier medications. I was taking very high dose of some stress relieving tablets and so I could not enjoy making love. After leaving them slowly it feels good and my partner is also happy now.

That's why I stress upon the diet and physical fitness of my husband too. Infertility is not just about female infertility but male infertility as well and we all need to know this.
