WHAT IS FERTILITY? ‚Äď THE HUMAN EXPLAINED

Defined briefly - fertility is the ability to reproduce: men who are fertile are able to father children, while fertile women are able to get pregnant and carry their baby to full term, with a live birth nine months after conception. These processes take place naturally - as result of the sexual intercourse.

Therefore, fertility is the natural capability of producing a healthy offspring... As a measure - fertility rate is the number of offspring born per mating pair, individual or population. Fertility differs from fecundity, which is defined as the potential for reproduction (influenced by gamete production, fertilization and carrying a pregnancy to term). A lack of fertility is infertility while a lack of fecundity would be called sterility. [1]

Opposite to fertility ‚Äď infertility is specified as the inability to conceive after 12 months or more of unprotected intercourse. About one in nine couples may experience fertility difficulties... There might be various reasons to depend on both - the male partner and some to the female partner. In the case of suspecting any problems with fertility ‚Äď it‚Äôs advised to research and¬†talk to knowledgeable doctor(s) ‚Äď as the one(s) in Medical Travel Czech team - who will guide you through the steps of an infertility investigation and relevant treatment, if needed.

Human fertility depends on different factors, which include and not limited to: regular nutrition, sexual behavior, consanguinity, culture, instinct, endocrinology, timing, economics, way of life, and emotions. [2]
