Do not hide if you've gone for any other infertility treatment before... You need to tell your doctor your complete medical history before going to take such treatment.

Male infertility can sometimes be irritating..do not let your partner feel low.. for a better result with the treatment, both the partners should feel relaxed and stress-free.
