Yoga for Infertility

What is Infertility?

Most people will have the strong desire to conceive a child at some point during their lifetime. Understanding what defines normal fertility is crucial to helping a person, or couple, know when it is time to seek help. Most couples (approximately 85%) will achieve pregnancy within one year of trying, with the most significant likelihood of conception occurring during the earlier months. As a result, infertility has come to be defined as the inability to conceive within 12 months. 

These include:

Infrequent menstrual periods

Female age of 35 years or older

A history of pelvic infections 

Known uterine fibroids or endometrial polyps.

Known male factor semen abnormalities.

Statistics of Infertility:-

Global rates of infertility have remained relatively stable between 1990 and 2010, according to a study that compiled data from 277 national surveys in 190 countries.

Research by the World Health Organisation (WHO) estimated that in 2010, 48.5 million couples worldwide were unable to have a child. 

They found that 1.9 percent of women aged 20-44 who wanted a child were unable to have their first live birth and 10.5 percent of women who had previously given birth were unable to have another baby after five years of trying. 

This represented a 0.1 percent and 0.4 percent decrease from 1990, respectively.
