STEPS IN THE HUMAN REPRODUCTIVE PROCESS

FOR PREGNANCY TO OCCUR, EACH STEP MUST HAPPEN CORRECTLY

ESSENTIAL FACTORS 

FOR PREGNANCY TO OCCUR

You have to ovulate. To get pregnant, your ovaries must deliver and discharge an egg, a procedure known as ovulation. Your specialist can help assess your menstrual cycles and affirm ovulation.

Your partner needs sperm. For most couples, this is certifiably not an issue except if your partner has a background marked by disease or medical procedure. Your specialist can run some basic tests to assess the soundness of your partner’s sperm.

You need to have regular sexual intercourse. Intercourse must take place during your most fertile time. Ask your specialist to help you determine when this will be.

You need to have open fallopian tubes and a healthy uterus. The sperm and egg meet in the fallopian tubes and a sound uterus is essential for the embryo to implant and grow.

 

“When it comes down to the nitty-gritty,
good old-fashioned sex is the way most babies are made.”

FEMALE INFERTILITY PROBLEMS

Approximately 30% of fertility problems can be linked to female factors:

there are many potential causes. Your overall health and your menstrual history should be carefully examined to help identify any potential risks. As well as a thorough gynaecological examination that can rule out any physical conditions that may be present that can hinder fertility as well as pregnancy later on.

GYNAECOLOGICAL SCREENING SHOULD BE DONE TO RULE OUT THE FOLLOWING:

 
ENDOMETRIOSIS

Potential pelvic scarring. Blockage of fallopian tubes. Blockage of fertilised egg implantation in uterus.

 
STD’S (SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES)

Potential pelvic scarring and PID Fallopian tube infection. Damage to fallopian tubes, uterus, and surrounding tissues

 
POLYCYSTIC OVARIAN SYNDROME (PCOS)

Raises androgen levels. Affects ovulation (development and release of eggs).

 
PELVIC INFLAMMATORY DISEASE (PID)

Scarring of the reproductive tract in both men & women. Pelvic adhesions. Fallopian tube blockages. Uterine anomalies. Infection in the uterus, fallopian tubes or ovaries.

 
RECURRENT URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS (UTI’S)

Potential bacterial spread to the uterus and fallopian tubes causing PID.

 
UTERINE FIBROIDS, BENIGN TUMOURS, CYSTS

Can block fallopian tubes or interfere with implantation. Ovarian torsion (painful twisting of ovaries). Impaired blood flow to ovaries. Potential internal
bleeding.

MALE INFERTILITY PROBLEMS

Approximately 30% of fertility problems can be linked to male factors

It obviously takes two when it comes to making a baby, and men are equal partners in the process. In a successful concept, male fertility is just as much a factor as it is to blame when things don't go as planned. While many of the same lifestyle factors in men and women act as fertility boosters, or threats, there are many man-specific things as well.
 
SEMEN AND SPERM

The life cycle of sperm life is about 42 days long. A typical ejaculate contains approximately one teaspoon of semen or 250 million sperm. Only 50 to 100 sperm reach the fallopian tubes after sex

 
VARICOCELES

This is varicose veins in the scrotum and are one of the main causes of male infertility

 
Sperm morphology (shape)

This is the shape of the sperm. To avoid potential problems with male fertility, men should keep their testes cool

 
Sperm motility (movement)

This is the movement of the sperm. Fatherhood should not be delayed too long by men as sperm volume decreases as men get older and becomes more sluggish
