Footsteps to Fertility
Fertility & Pre-Conception Reflexology
How long do we keep trying before requesting help?
According to the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence
•84% of couples in general population will conceive within 1 year if they do not use contraception and have regular sexual intercourse. Of those that do not conceive in the first year, about half will do so in the second year.
•People who have not conceived after 1 year of regular unprotected sexual intercourse would be offered further clinical investigations including semen analysis and/or assessment of ovulation.
•Couples who experience problems in conceiving should be seen together because both partners are affected by decisions surrounding investigation and treatment.
However, for approximately 25% of couples who have investigations there will be no obvious reason why they cannot conceive.
In either case, stress levels in both partners are likely to be very high.
Life can sometimes take its toll, which can express itself in our bodies in various ways. The state of our fertility health can be one of them, something that may not become apparent until we try to conceive.
