Fertility


Fertility: Fertility is the ability of an individual or couple to reproduce through normal sexual activity. According to the Webster dictionary 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 sperm by the male and viable eggs by the female, successful passage of the sperm through open ducts from the male testes to the female fallopian tubes, penetration of a healthy egg and implantation of the fertilized egg in the lining of the uterus. A problem with any of these steps can cause infertility.

If you have a fertility problem, your doctor can talk to you about the help that’s available, which could include talking therapies, lifestyle changes or medicines.

Always seek the advice of your doctor before taking herbal remedies
