HAPPY 21ST ! INCIID celebrates 21 years in Cyber Space. INCIID was created in October 1994 during Infertility Awareness Week when there was nothing anywhere in cyber space about infertility. So INCIID became the first infertility site on the web in March of 1995. We've been supporting infertile couples for more than two decades. In 2004 we were the first to organize a national IVF scholarship program and since them many babies have been born with INCIID's help.

In order to understand the concept of male fertility, a basic understanding of two processes is required. Sperm must undergo a series of steps toward maturation. The next to last step in this series is called capacitation. (Article also has audio)
