From Infertility To Pregnancy

As a species, we human beings are conscious of being intellectually superior to all other species. This fact sometimes results in high levels of introspection; self-examination when we take note of our own thoughts, feelings and anxieties in ways that are unknown to other animals. We breed in a way that is more or less common to most species of mammals and, in common with them most of us are inclined to take for granted the miracle of our reproductive capabilities. Unlike other mammals however, at least as far as we are able to discern, many of us decide to take charge of the timing of our reproductive processes to suit our convenience and to allow us to follow other life choices such as careers, leisure pursuits or pure inclination. Increasingly in developed societies, women make the decision to postpone the production of children until much later in life than was considered advisable or even possible a few short decades ago. The science of medicine has advanced so far in recent years that women are often able to conceive and bear children when they are in their thirties, forties or even later in life and when this happens naturally, in accordance with her plans, a woman may still take this miracle for granted.

Unfortunately the miracle doesn’t always happen naturally for every woman but every woman who has made the decision that NOW is the time when she wants to conceive is very likely to suffer not only disappointment but also more serious emotions if she doesn’t become pregnant within a reasonably short time from ceasing to use contraception.

Sometimes it is merely a case of conception being delayed a short while and when it does happen the delight of the woman, and usually of her male partner may well be tremendous. The same can be true of the negative emotions a failure to conceive when expected can generate. Indeed, these negative emotions can themselves start to create barriers to conception and it becomes important for the woman to understand not only the importance of her state of mind but also more about the physical factors which can be so critical to her ability to conceive. It must be understood that some women, because of some physical abnormality, either congenital or resulting from surgery or other intervention, are unable to reproduce and will never be able to do so but there are also large numbers of other women who, do not conceive when they want to but who could, if they understood how, greatly increase their probability of successfully becoming pregnant and carrying their healthy child to full term and a normal birth.
