    How many eggs does a woman have at puberty?

    • A.

      5-10 million

    • B.

      1-2 million

    • C.

      100,000 - 500,000

    • D.

      10,000 - 25,000

    Correct Answer
    C. 100,000 - 500,000
    Explanation
    At puberty, a woman typically has around 100,000 to 500,000 eggs. This is because a female is born with all the eggs she will ever have, and as she goes through puberty, her ovaries start releasing eggs each month during her menstrual cycle. However, it is important to note that the number of eggs gradually decreases over time, and by the time a woman reaches menopause, she may have very few eggs left.

    What does ART stand for?

    • A.

      Assisted Reproductive Technology

    • B.

      Assisted Reproductive Techniques

    • C.

      Advanced Reproductive Technology

    • D.

      Advanced Reproductive Techniques

    Correct Answer
    A. Assisted Reproductive Technology
    Explanation
    Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) refers to medical procedures that assist in achieving pregnancy by manipulating eggs, sperm, or embryos outside of the body. This can include techniques such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT). ART is used when couples are unable to conceive naturally or have fertility issues. It provides various options for individuals or couples to overcome infertility and increase their chances of having a baby.

    Fertility declines more rapidly for women after what age?

    • A.

      29

    • B.

      33

    • C.

      35

    • D.

      37

    Correct Answer
    C. 35
    Explanation
    Fertility declines more rapidly for women after the age of 35. This is because as women age, the number and quality of their eggs decrease. By the age of 35, a woman's fertility starts to decline significantly, making it more difficult for her to conceive naturally. Additionally, the risk of complications during pregnancy and birth also increases after this age. Therefore, it is generally recommended for women to consider starting a family before the age of 35 to increase their chances of conceiving and having a healthy pregnancy.

    What is the most common form of Assisted Reproductive Technology?

    • A.

      IUI Intrauterine Insemination

    • B.

      GIFT Gamete Intra-Fallopian Transfer

    • C.

      TET Tubal Embryo Transfer

    • D.

      IVF In Vitro Fertilization

    Correct Answer
    A. IUI Intrauterine Insemination
    Explanation
    IUI, or Intrauterine Insemination, is the most common form of Assisted Reproductive Technology. This procedure involves placing sperm directly into the uterus to increase the chances of fertilization. It is a less invasive and more affordable option compared to other methods like IVF. GIFT, TET, and IVF are also forms of Assisted Reproductive Technology, but they are not as commonly used as IUI.

  • 6. 

    Which exercise would be the least likely to interfere with fertility?

    • A.

      Yoga

    • B.

      Swimming

    • C.

      Biking

    • D.

      Running

    Correct Answer
    A. Yoga
    Explanation
    Yoga would be the least likely exercise to interfere with fertility because it is a low-impact activity that promotes relaxation, reduces stress, and improves flexibility. Unlike high-intensity exercises like swimming, biking, or running, yoga does not put excessive strain on the reproductive organs or disrupt the hormonal balance in the body. Additionally, certain yoga poses specifically target the pelvic area, promoting blood flow and enhancing reproductive health. Therefore, practicing yoga is less likely to negatively impact fertility compared to other forms of exercise.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What type of exercise is most desirable for women trying to conceive?

    • A.

      Anything that sheds pounds fast

    • B.

      Low intensity activities

    • C.

      Running and aerobics

    • D.

      Woman trying to conceive should not exercise

    Correct Answer
    B. Low intensity activities
    Explanation
    Low intensity activities are the most desirable type of exercise for women trying to conceive because they help maintain a healthy weight and promote overall well-being without putting excessive stress on the body. High intensity exercises, such as running and aerobics, may interfere with the hormonal balance and menstrual cycle, potentially affecting fertility. Therefore, it is recommended for women trying to conceive to engage in low intensity activities like walking, swimming, or gentle yoga to support their reproductive health.

    What is the most common cause of infertility in women?

    • A.

      Endometriosis

    • B.

      Ovulatory Disorders

    • C.

      Thyroid Disease

    • D.

      Tubal Blockage

    Correct Answer
    B. Ovulatory Disorders
    Explanation
    Ovulatory disorders are the most common cause of infertility in women. These disorders refer to conditions that affect the regular release of eggs from the ovaries. When a woman does not ovulate regularly or does not ovulate at all, it becomes difficult for her to conceive. Ovulatory disorders can be caused by various factors such as hormonal imbalances, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), stress, excessive exercise, and certain medical conditions. Treatment options for ovulatory disorders include lifestyle changes, medication, and assisted reproductive technologies like in vitro fertilization (IVF).

      Male

    • B.

      Female

    • C.

      Combination

    • D.

      All are equal

    Correct Answer
    D. All are equal
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All are equal". This means that all factors, whether male or female, have an equal prevalence in causing infertility. This suggests that both men and women can experience infertility issues and that it is not solely attributed to one gender. It highlights the importance of considering both partners when diagnosing and treating infertility.

  • 10. 

    Which is least likely to cause a low sperm count?

    • A.

      Age

    • B.

      Obesity

    • C.

      Smoking

    • D.

      Stress

    Correct Answer
    A. Age
    Explanation
    Age is least likely to cause a low sperm count because sperm production typically remains consistent throughout a man's life. While other factors such as obesity, smoking, and stress can have negative effects on sperm count, age alone does not directly contribute to a decrease in sperm production. However, advanced age may increase the risk of genetic abnormalities in sperm, which can affect fertility.
