Many of the couples don’t even realize they may have infertility until they start trying to have a baby. Many cases of infertility are caused due to ovulation issues. Ovulation is the process in which the woman releases an egg from the ovary which happens once a month, about 12 – 14 days before the first day of the periods. Without this process, a woman cannot conceive.
