WHAT IS FERTILITY?
Fertility refers to so much more than simply having a baby. It is a natural state that occurs when the overall health and balance between all the systems of the body are restored. There is considerable media coverage as an estimated 1 in 6 couples struggle to conceive. From around 30 years of age the likelihood of pregnancy is thought to reduce by three to five percent each year. This is a gradual decline and as women enter their 40’s the thought of the “clock ticking” can create immense pressure. The good news is that many Fertility experts believe it is possible to increase the likelihood of falling pregnant throughout the late 30’s and 40’s. By nourishing the body, we restore hormone balance and create optimum health, providing the ideal condition for fertility.
When we nourish the body, we provide the fertile soil for the seed to blossom.
Female fertility depends upon a number of factors. Women must be able to ovulate (supply a mature egg, known as an ovum) from one of her ovaries. The ovum needs to travel along the fallopian tube and allow the sperm to enter. The fertilised egg (zygote) must then go through a process of cell division as it passes through the fallopian tube and finally implant in to the uterus.
Adequate levels of the hormones oestrogen and progesterone must continue to be produced to prepare the uterus. The growing placenta then takes over this role and supplies additional hormones to ensure the growth of the embryo. A healthy placenta is essential to nourish the developing foetus and secure the pregnancy.
Male fertility depends upon the ability to release tens of millions of healthy sperm that can migrate spontaneously and actively towards the egg which travels from the ovary to the fallopian tube. The sperm travels at a speed of four millimetres per minute, so motility needs to be efficient as it can take them 30-60 minutes to reach the egg as it passes through the fallopian tube. Male infertility is thought to contribute to around 30% of cases of infertility.
