The Birds & The Bees

For a couple to have a child, the following things need to happen (2): 

  • Ovulation
  • Sperm must find and fertilize the egg
  • The fertilized egg must travel through the fallopian tube to the uterus
  • The fertilized egg must implant in the uterine lining
  • The embryo must develop throughout the pregnancy and result in a healthy live birth

Issues with any of the steps above can cause infertility. Fortunately, infertility doesn’t necessarily mean that a couple can’t get pregnant. There are many effective therapies, ranging from lifestyle changes to assisted reproductive therapies (ART), that can improve a couple’s chances of getting pregnant (3). Here, we’ll go through some of the top questions about infertility and provide our free resources that dig even deeper into dealing with infertility.
