Fertility - Overview
The natural ability to conceive a child is referred to as fertility. The inability to conceive naturally after one year of unprotected sexual intercourse is referred to as infertility.
When a couple seeks help for fertility issues, about a third of the time it's due to male-factor infertility, a third of the time it's female-factor infertility, and the other third is a combination problem.
Majority of couples will be able to get pregnant with the help of fertility treatments, surgery, or lifestyle changes.
A brief overview of what it takes for a couple to conceive naturally;
Ovulation is when an egg is released from one of the ovaries. This occurs once a month during a woman’s childbearing years.
Any problem with one or more of the stages briefly described above can result to lack of pregnancy.
You are most likely to get pregnant if you have sexual intercourse during your fertile period which lasts between five and eight days before ovulation.
The male sperm can stay 5 -7days inside a woman’s body. The odds of conceiving the day before ovulation are between 21 percent and 34 percent, four days before ovulation the odds are between 8 percent and 17 percent. Therefore, the closer you time sexual intercourse to your ovulation the higher the chances of getting pregnant.
How to know when you are ovulating
Ovulation occurs 14 days prior to the (onset) beginning of menstruation, once your egg has been released, it’s viable for about 12 to 24 hours.
