Fertilization

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.

Conception

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.

As Simple as Marking your Calendar

As tasty as it might sound, having your partner eat fennel, bull genitals, or drink lamb saliva wont help you conceive or give you a higher chance of becoming pregnant on your first try. Keeping track of your periods, and ovulation days will make it a lot easier than any of those tasty meals.

Artificial Insemination

Artificial insemination is done by a fertility specialist. Assisted Reproductive Technology short for ART, this specific procedure makes conception a lot easier if there is a low sperm count. Sometimes couples may even have to choose a donor because of infertility. It makes conception easier by inserting the sperm into a woman's cervix. More than 3.5 million children are conceived through ART.
