What is fertility?
Fertility describes a couple’s ability to reproduce through normal sexual activity. About 90% of healthy, fertile women are able to conceive within one year if they have intercourse regularly without contraception.
Normal fertility requires the production of:
- Enough healthy sperms by the male and viable eggs by the female.
- Successful passage of the sperms to the female fallopian tubes.
- Penetration of a healthy egg, and implantation of the fertilized egg in the lining of the womb.
Any problem with any of these steps can cause infertility.
