Knowing how fertile you are is a key first step when trying to get pregnant. Whether you’re super fertile, have high fertility or low fertility, there are various tests and products that can help you on this journey.
Taking a step back, what does fertility even mean?
Fertility is the ability to conceive, whereas infertility is the inability to establish a clinical pregnancy after 12 months of regular, unprotected sex.
For females, fertility is especially focused on egg and uterine health, AKA the ability to ovulate and get pregnant. For males, fertility is especially focused on sperm health and the ability for sperm to fertilize an egg.
Can you be “super” fertile?
It’s true that fertility is genetic, and there actually are some people who can be classified as “super” fertile. This is all dependent on sperm and egg health.
