Fertility

Depending on your age and the condition of your health, it is possible that you may take some time to have an erection again after intercourse.

It is hard to predict exactly when ovulation occurs as every women’s cycle is different. A good rule of the thumb is that ovulation takes place about two weeks before menstruation (every month) if the cycle is regular.

For fertility purposes, try during your ovulation periods. You may want to put a pillow under the buttocks after sex as this will allow semen to stay in the vagina longer. You should also rest in bed for at least half an hour after sex to increase the chances of conception. 

In the event semen flows into the vagina after anal sex, there is a possibility of getting pregnant.

Teratozoospermia refers to abnormal looking sperms. Ideally a good sperm should have an oval head and a tail. Abnormal sperms do not function properly and have reduced capacity to fertilise. Men who have less than four percent normal sperms in their semen sample may experience difficulty to conceive naturally.

There is no proven treatment for this condition though you may be offered anti-oxidants, vitamin A, vitamin C. You may want to seek professional medical advice as an assessment of sperm quality is best made by a specialist looking at whole semen analysis.

A baby is conceived from the fertilisation of a sperm and an egg. The egg only carries a X chromosome while a sperm can carry either a X or Y chromosome from the father. If a X-carrying sperm fertilises the egg, a baby girl (XX) will be conceived and if a Y-carrying sperm fertilises the egg, a baby boy (XY) will be conceived. Therefore, it is evident that the father’s sperm determines the gender of the offspring.

As in all things, various myths do exist and have no scientific basis at all. They include things such as sleeping positions and having intercourse on certain calendar days, etc. These have not been shown to influence a baby’s gender.

The chances of twin births are higher if there’s a family history of this occurrence. Oral fertility medications may lead to increased chances of conceiving twins as there may be two or more eggs being produced per cycle.

If your fallopian tube is blocked, then there is a problem. You should seek medical attention as soon as possible, once treated, fertility may be restored
