CIAW - Fertility Infographics

I find that most people don't actually know that much about our male and female fertility. When all you have to do is have sex and that gets you pregnant, you may not feel it necessary to do any research. If you don't know all that much, that is totally fine! Consider yourself lucky that you don't have to know all the different terms and abbreviations and such. But for those of us who are struggling with infertility, we tend to learn pretty quickly how our systems are supposed to work.

I came across these different infographics and I thought they were a nice overview and could be helpful to those who aren't as familiar with how our reproductive systems work. I have included the link as to where I found them underneath each picture, which will bring you to an American fertility clinic. I apologize but it seems like most facts out there on the internet come from the States, so bear with me!



If those are hard to read (who am I kidding, they're impossible to read!), click the "via" link underneath each one and it will open it in a bigger window.
