There are many factors that can make conception more difficult.
Conception requires healthy sperm, regular intercourse around the time of ovulation, good quality eggs, and a healthy pelvic environment.
Sometimes a problem in just one of these areas can lead to a delay getting pregnant. Quite commonly there are both male and female factors contributing to this delay. In addition to these more defined medical conditions which can impact a couples’ fertility, factors such as age, weight and lifestyle can also play a role.
