The term “fertility” refers to a person’s ability to produce offspring. Getting to know your body and the signs associated with your most fertile days is an important aspect of your sexual health. If you want to become pregnant it will help you to achieve those results more quickly. If you want to avoid having children, understanding your fertility will enable you to avoid having unprotected intercourse during your peak fertile times. Seeking the help of a fertility specialist is recommended when a couple has been unable to conceive within a year. If you are over the age of 35, time is of greater importance as successful conception becomes more and more unlikely as we age. Infertility affects at least 1 in 5 couples. That’s a whopping 25% of the world’s population that suffer from infertility in some fashion! Luckily, the majority of couples who suffer from fertility will find help – usually through finding the right fertility clinic and or doctor where infertility therapy can begin. Some couples will adopt, some will decide upon surrogacy and many will eventually time conception just right and manage it without outside help.
This course is designed to teach you about fertility and infertility as well as the alternative options available for yourself and others.
