Conception begins with getting pregnant by choosing the right time to have sexual intercourse to increase the chance of pregnancy. Ovulation prediction test can be used to accurately determine when woman is ovulating and to predict the best time to have sexual intercourse to increase your chance of getting pregnant.
Infertility problems may exist that prevent couples from getting pregnant. Infertility problems can be caused by many factors such as female infertility and male infertility. Female infertility may be caused by failure to ovulate at regular intervals and male infertility may be caused by low sperm count and reduce sperm motility that lower the chance of woman getting pregnant.
Advanced reproductive technologies have made getting pregnant possible for couples with infertility problems. Artificial insemination (AI) such as intrauterine insemination (IUI), In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), or Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) can be used to assist couples with infertility problems and to increase a woman’s chance of conception.
In some cases couples that do not have infertility problems and are able to get pregnant successfully does not always results in childbirth. A miscarriage or spontaneous abortions may occur and terminate the pregnancy.
However, many unwanted pregnancy occurs even when couples are using contraceptives but they may not be using it correctly or consistently. When unplanned pregnancy occurs most couples choose to have the baby and many also choose to have elective abortion.
