Trying for months or even years to get pregnant without success can be a very frustrating situation for infertile couples; but the good news is that due to the advance in medicine, infertile parents can now have children through In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) which is a process where an egg from a female gets fertilised by a sperm outside the body.

Apart from IVF there are other things infertile couples can do to boost their fertility and increase their chances of conception. They include;

- Losing weight: Obesity in women decreases their fertility; you can use a Body Mass Index to calculate your current weight; try to lose some pounds if you are over weight, it will help boost your fertility naturally.
