Infertility - a common problem Part 2 (Teacher: Michael)

A man who is impotent, or who ejaculates prematurely, is unlikely to impregnate his partner. A couple who love only once a year are unlikely to have a baby. Generally speaking, unless a woman is over the age of 30 it isn't usually necessary to investigate a case of alleged infertility until a couple have having intercourse without any form of contraception for two years. Well before that time limit is reached, there are a number of things that a couple can to enhance their chances of having a child.

Having sex as close as possible to the moment of ovulation is a good starting point as any. Most women ovulate 14 days before the end of their menstrual cycle, so sex at that time is far more likely to result in a pregnancy than sex just before or after a period. To ensure that this sperm is in the best possible condition, a man should avoid tight jeans, out of hot baths and saunas, and with his legs apart as often as possible. Sperm are very susceptible to unwanted heat.

After intercourse, a woman who wants to pregnant should stay in bed half an hour, up her knees and a pillow under her bottom. These actions are designed to improve the chances of a sperm getting into and through the cervix and meeting an egg.
