Marie Stopes PNG will be hosting its second Fertility Seminar next week Saturday on the 17th of July at their Gordon clinic.
According to Marie Stopes Service Delivery Director – Loretta Bele, the purpose of the seminar is to provide information that can improve the chances of having a child for infertile couples. Ms Bele said they have received positive feedbacks from their first Fertility Session.
She said their aim is to provide as much information needed for couples to make better decisions for themselves.
“The outcome of these sessions are to give them a bit more information about what is pregnancy and why you are not able to get pregnant and what may be the possible causes, what may be the risk factors involved.”
“There are two ways in which we can help them and one is to find out whether the female has underlying gynecological issues or whether the problem lies with the man.”
Bele said they understand that most couples experience a strain on their relationship when they struggle to conceive, therefore the seminar is a way of bringing couples together to better understand each other with the information provided at the seminar.
