Fertility is the natural ability to produce offspring. Conception takes place when a woman's egg gets fertilized by a man's sperm resulting in pregnancy. For some couples, having a baby is a fairly straightforward process. However, other couples have difficulty conceiving. 'Infertility' refers to when a couple is not successful with conceiving after having unprotected sex for 6-12 months depending on age. There are numerous treatments that can be tried to assist with conception - time needs to be taken with a health care practitioner to decide which is best for you and your partner.
