If starting a family has been a challenge for you, it will be reassuring to know that you are not alone. It is estimated that more than 2.1 million couples are experiencing infertility. Infertility is defined as not being able to conceive after one year or more of unprotected and frequent intercourse.
If you and your partner have been trying to conceive for a year or more and have not been successful, there may be an underlying problem that is causing this to occur, many of which are easily diagnosed and successfully treated. Men and women are equally as likely to have a fertility problem; it is not a problem unique to women alone. It is a good idea for you to consult your doctor and try and determine your course of action.
You should also know that if you have decided to seek fertility treatment you are one of many. More that 9.2 million women have sought the use of infertility treatments at some time in their life. Advances in science and medicine have had a positive effect on the diagnosis and treatment of infertility. Approximately two-thirds of those couples who seek infertility treatments are able to conceive. Our team at Metro Drugs is here to help.

Women's Health - HRT
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is the process of restoring and maintaining hormone balance with hormones that mimic hormones produced naturally by the body.
The body recognizes them and allows them to mimic the function of the hormones the body produces on its own.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the inability to attain or sustain an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse or activity. Thirty million American men are diagnosed with ED every year. 85-90% of these diagnosis are attributed to physical reasons, while 10-15% are psychological. The physical reasons can often be symptoms or signs of health issues such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and prostate cancer or reactions to medication and/or influence of hormones. The positive news is that no matter what the diagnosis and/or cause, almost every man can be treated for ED. The goal of treatment is to restore normal sexual function whenever possible and to discover alternatives to maintain or enhance the richness of your relationship.
