Fertility

There is still no general consensus as to whether a previous abortion will affect the chances of future pregnancies. There are medical studies that say yes and vice versa. However, abortions can have complications such as Asherman’s syndrome where the uterine cavity gets scarred resulting in infertility. Another possible complication of repeated abortions is cervical incompetence where there are repeated mid-trimester miscarriages or premature births.

You could  go to the local hospital websites to check for more information. Alternatively, you may want to book an appointment at a fertility clinic in a private practice or government restructured hospital.

Over exertion may reduce one's fertility but certainly some exercises are better than others during the "fertile period".

The sperm morphology refers to the shape of the sperm. A normal seminal analysis should have at least 4% of sperm with normal morphology.  Your sperm morphology percentage is low and chances of natural conception reduced.

Mumps is a viral infection of the salivary glands. In boys, it may sometimes (two to three in ten males) affect testes and cause inflammation called orchitis.

It usually affects one but may involve both testes (one in six males). After infection, there is loss of testicular tissue in half to one third of males, which may affect sperm production and therefore fertility.

There are more risks involved with late conception. If you are above 35 and have been trying for six months without conceiving, please seek medical attention.

If the endometrium is very thin and the menses are very scanty, then there is possibly an issue with the implantation. 

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.

Depending on your cycle length, you can try to use the ovulation prediction kit around the middle of your cycle.
