Infertility refers to an inability to conceive after having regular unprotected sex or biological inability to carry pregnancy to full term. In many countries infertility refers to a couple that has failed to conceive after 12 months of regular sexual intercourse without the use of contraception.
There are various causes of infertility, including some that medical intervention can treat. The ovulatory problems are the most common cause of female infertility which generally manifests by sparse or absence of menses (Amenorrhea). Fertile women experience a natural period of fertility before and during ovulation and are naturally infertile during the rest of the menstrual cycle. Cervical mucus or basal body temperature changes can be tracked to discern the above changes occurring during menstrual cycle under the term fertility awareness methods.
What is ovulation?
Ovulation is considered as the monthly release of Ovum (an egg). The ovum travels from the ovary to the uterus (womb) where the fertilized egg grows. Female infertility may occur if:
A woman is most fertile in her early 20s. The age when fertility starts to decline varies from woman to woman. Infertility problems and miscarriage rates increase significantly after the age of 35.
Infertility can be divided into Primary and secondary infertility.
Primary infertility is defined as the absence of a live birth for a couple who have been in a union for at least one year without using any contraceptives.
Secondary infertility is defined as the absence of a live birth for a couple who have been in a union for at least five years since their last live birth without using any contraceptives.
