Can Volume Pills or Semenax Help Overcome Infertility?
Time is running out for Sarah Browne. A small flame of life has flickered and died within her 10 times in the last eight years, but hope endures. She still yearns for a child.
Now in her mid-thirties, she is one of at least a million women in Britain who share with their husbands a constant dream - and a continuing disappointment.
Infertility has been described as a lifetime spent in limbo, grieving not for a child that died, but for one that could not be born. The victims of childlessness - a term of such empty finality - feel their loss is the harder one to bear.
Tell a woman who wants a baby that she can never have it, and she is devastated by the denial of nature's gift. Tell a man he cannot be a father, and he feels he has failed both his wife and himself.
Sarah Browne and her husband are still solidly together, despite her 10 miscarriages and seven operations. Others are less strong, finding they cannot remain unified without a child.
“Individuals who during their younger years have seen their future selves not only as husbands or wives, but as parents, have to make a tremendous psychological adjustment to their infertility”, says psychiatrist Dr. Cecilia Brebner. “They face not only the loss of self as the kind of person they would have become, but the loss of the imaginary family, and with it the kind of life they would have led.”
The World Health Organization has decreed that every couple has the right to establish a family. Unfortunately there is no ombudsman, no tribunal, no court of appeal, for those who discover that the right has been withheld, whether by nature, accident or misguided design.
Accurate estimates are hard to obtain, but many doctors agree that at least one couple in every 10 is infertile. The number of cases seems to be increasing, partly because of a trend among many couples to delay trying to start a family until later in marriage, when they are bound to be less fertile.
It may take many empty years before many couples even realize the problem exists. Some never acknowledge the truth, afraid, or unable to admit 'failure' to themselves, to their own parents, workmates and friends. 'When are you going to have a baby?', however innocently asked, is the question they dread.
More than in most other medical conditions, the sufferers are punished again and again by the cruel passing of time, even after they have sought help. The 'same time next year' syndrome of clinic waiting rooms is their lot, for whatever the medical problem, its resolution is likely to come demoralizingly slowly - if it comes at all.
Jenny Hunt, a counsellor for the infertility clinic at London's Hammersmith Hospital, one of Britain's leading units, is full of sympathy. 'People can feel they've lost control of their lives when they have to depend on medical skill in order to have a child. Angry feelings are very normal in the circumstances. '
Their only hope lies with the gyneaecologists, andrologists, urologists, endocrinologists and others who specialize in treating infertility, including the growing number of experts in in vitro fertilization - the so-called 'test-tube baby' doctors. New treatments involves taking natural semen enhancers such as Volume Pills and Semenax.
All are dedicated to helping couples create and complete their families, but for all their skills they can offer only hope, not promises. They themselves often suffer stress and depression brought on by trying to beat the odds on behalf of their patients.
