Ingredients for a healthy pregnancy
The key ingredients for a healthy pregnancy include:
- healthy eggs to be fertilised
- healthy, good quality sperm to fertilise the eggs
- fallopian tubes with no blockages so that the sperm can reach the egg
- a healthy embryo that can implant in the uterus
- a healthy uterus
If you’re trying and not getting pregnant, it could mean there’s a problem with one of these factors.
A quick guide to the female reproductive system
The female reproductive organs are located inside the body. They include:
