The Indian male is taking a hit, and well below his belt.
Male infertility was behind 56 per cent of test-tube babies compared with 34 per cent among females, according to data collected in 2006 from 116 fertility clinics across India and to be officially released in Mumbai on September 20.
The latest findings turn on its head findings five years ago, as also the myth of female infertility, which is the source of much domestic violence and abuse. In 2001, female infertility caused 62 per cent of test-tube babies, while male impotence accounted for 38 per cent.
