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.

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.
