Women unaware of fertility window:

Almost 90 per cent of women undergoing treatment for infertility at two Melbourne clinics did not know the best time to have sex to fall pregnant.

A Monash University study which surveyed more than 200 women seeking help to achieve a pregnancy found only 13 percent could correctly nominate the specific days in their cycle when women are most fertile.

"This study found a majority of the women seeking fertility treatment had insufficient knowledge of when to time intercourse to optimise natural conception," researcher Kerry Hampton from Monash University's Department of General Practice said.

The study, published in the International Journal of Advanced Nursing, found 68 percent of women believed they had pinpointed the window of fertility before seeking professional advice, that Fertility Plus can offer you.

Ms. Hampton said poor fertility awareness could contribute to infertility, which affects about one in six Australian couples.

Timing intercourse accurately could reduce the time it takes a couple to get pregnant and may avoid the need for assisted reproductive treatment, Ms. Hampton said.

The best time to conceive is the three days just before and including ovulation, about 14 days before the start of a period.

Research released on Monday by the Fertility Coalition, a group of Australian fertility health organisations, found two-thirds of Australians were unaware of the fertility window.

Only a third of those surveyed could pinpoint the optimum time.

I would like to share my personal experience in this field. Some time ago I was ready to give everything for the opportunity to become a mother. Biologically I am now my baby mother. I have no eggs and due to cancer and I lost my uterus. I had no variants. Since I am from Hungary surrogacy is illegal here. We started looking for variants abroad, here a cost varies greatly. After reviewing a large number of clinics, we contacted native iyabasira native clinic They offered an ‘all inclusive’ package that we were very happy with, as we were only focused on winning. And it is much cheaper than somewhere else and we were surprised with conditions and attitude to us. After 1.5 years we became parents. And it is priceless. this is mother iya herbs works, email info (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)) In such cases her herbs is a real solution to become a happy mum.

I finally was able to conceive a child of my own the year 2017 after 11 years without any issue. this really was the worst thing ever. It was a miracle that indeed shocked me. because i was left with no option but to use a Herbal Health Concoction that was prepared from Herbs to help the Immune. I got to find out about this from someone, and i talked to the direct source about my problem. He`s name is Priest Babaka and He told me how some necessary few herbs will be useful as to women`s health and recovery and He had to do what He knows best. He sent the Herbs to me and gave instruction on method of use. this all happened and i really have been able to say i`m glad God did this.
