Infertile Female Stigmatization In Nigeria by articleme(m): 10:10am On Sep 08, 2021
Globally, infertility creates problems for couples, especially for women and Nigeria is not exempted. Their women are often blamed for couples’ infertility and suffer personal grief and frustration, social stigma, rejection and serious economic deprivation. These women have a strong sense of stigma when others talk about their infertility, and therefore felt social withdrawal.

Most females suffering from infertility in Nigeria often have a strong desire to conceive and are sensitive to words such as “pregnancy” and “children.” Most of their peers already have children, and they feel different from others. They feel upset when asked about their children or when they face comments from others. They feel “pathetic” in the eyes of others and are considered a “joke.” To escape these inner thoughts and avoid embarrassing situations, they are unwilling to go to parties with friends who have children, participate in activities, or contact people, which might result in social withdrawal.
