Fertilization isn't easy, we know. There are many reasons as to why it doesn't occur, like an ovum or sperm cell dying and not making it through the fallopian tube. Sometimes it can be our body that simply isn't ready to carry another human being just yet.
As we all know, conception occurs when a male and female have sexual intercourse and the sperm cell penetrates the egg cell. The sperm cell can live in a woman's body up to 7 days. For 90 percent of couples the chances of becoming pregnant after 18 months to 2 years of trying are high unless there is a known cause.
It Isn't Always a Woman's Fault
Some men like to take the high road on things and say you are less of a woman if you can't conceive their child. The truth is you aren't, and I hope you know that. Men can suffer from low sperm count, or sometimes their sperm is just not capable of motion making it almost impossible to get to the egg. Infertility in men can be genetic.
