Infertility

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FERTILITY & INFERTILITY?

Fertility is being able to naturally conceive and bear children of one’s own. It is being able to have children that have the same nature with you. Men are said to be fertile if they can make a woman become pregnant through sex while women are said to be fertile if they can become pregnant through sex, carry the baby through nine months and give birth to living child at nine months which is the full term for humans.

"Infertility" is not being able to impregnate or get pregnant naturally and bear children that share the same nature with one. A man is said to be infertile if he cannot impregnate a woman through sex and a woman is said to be infertile if she cannot get pregnant through sex, carry the child for nine months and deliver the baby at full term.

Medically, infertility is said to be present when a woman and a man cannot achieve pregnancy after one whole year of having unprotected sex. The time frame is reduced to six months in older women who are above 35 years of age so that they can seek treatment earlier because fertility reduces as women get older.

Fertility problems can be caused or complicated by many different factors while one single fertility may have just a single cause, many causes or at times, no identifiable cause. If we were to divide 100% of fertility problems into 3 parts, the first part would affect the man, the second part would affect the woman while the third part would affect both men and women or there may be no identifiable cause at all.
