Having a baby is something most people expect to be able to do if and when they want. But it’s not always as easy as you may expect.
In order to conceive, women should be producing eggs (ovulating) regularly and men should have healthy sperm. You also need to be having intercourse at the right time in the woman’s monthly cycle, so the sperm is ready to fertilise the egg when it is released.
To maximise your chances of getting pregnant, it is useful to start by understanding natural conception, the male and female sex organs and the monthly cycle.
Your lifestyle can make a difference to your fertility and this applies for both men and women.
