When you decide to undergo IVF, there's a lot of information to absorb and the process is often both physically and emotionally challenging. The direct role played by a male partner in the IVF process is relatively small. Once they've provided a sperm sample, their role shifts to one of support. This is still an important role, but the process is more intense and demanding for women.
There are several steps that women need to complete during IVF, and being clear about what's involved in each step can help you feel a little more in control and ready as you go through the process.
Nowadays it is possible to buy STD home testing kits on the high street or online so you can find out at home if you have a sexually transmitted infection. Why would you use such a kit?
One big advantage of using a home testing kit is that you can take the test as soon as you are worried. You will then get the results within a day or two of sending it away to the laboratory.
