You may be trying to conceive (TTC) for such a very long time without success, and begin to wonder if your own dog is the cause of your infertility.
It’s not known where this idea originated from, but sometimes, desperate people will try to come up with any explanation for their challenges getting pregnant.
And Rover isn’t exempt from their ideas.
You may have even been diagnosed with a fertility issue, but every time you look at your beloved dog…you just can’t help but wonder if there’s a connection.
Myth or Fact?
“No, there is no known association between pets and infertility,” says Daniel Kort, MD, Practice Director of Neway Fertility, one of NYC’s leading fertility centers specializing in customized and affordable natural fertility treatments.
And that’s that. Nothing more needs to be added to the straightforward answer.
But for those of you who are still not convinced, think of it this way:
Just HOW could a dog make it difficult for you to conceive? The presence of a dog, cat, hamster or turtle will have no effect on the production of eggs from the ovaries.
Nor will the presence of a pet have any influence on sperm production.
Granted, a needy dog may interfere with getting in the mood, but that aside, your Rover, Fluffy or Brutus has no effect on the ability to conceive.
