"Ice Cold Family Planning | Sissel Rogne | TEDxArendal." YouTube. YouTube, 22 Sept. 2014.
Web. 7 Mar. 2016.
In this Ted Talks video, Sissel Rogne gives a breakdown of what basic infertility is, in
this case, not being able to conceive in the essential, natural form being sexual
intercourse. She then breaks down basic procedures used in the case that couples who
cannot conceive are taken through. I would like to use this source as a way to show how
different people achieve what seems like such a basic act, when what is normal does
not work for the couple.

In this Ted Talks video, Camille Preston takes us as the audience through her personal
tremulous journey of infertility. In the video she describes the overflow of emotions that

In this source, authors Chelsea Bernhardt Polis and Laurie Schwab Zabin, explore how
perceptions on infertility and contraceptive behaviors affect actual statistical features of
infertility. In this article the breakdown is shown in terms of age, gender and nationality.
As expected, many of those surveyed believed anything could be wrong with them in
terms of reproductive health, as little as 19% percent of women and 13% of men. I would
like to show these statistics to further prove the necessity of destigmatizing the issue of
infertility as a society to further adjust the ways in which we can help those struggling
with it.
