Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which are considered the most fertile days of a woman's cycle?

    • A.

      Pregnancy can be achieved on any given day of her cycle

    • B.

      The 4 - 5 days prior to, and including the day of ovulation

    • C.

      During the luteal phase (second half of her cycle)

    • D.

      Any time after he has helped with the dishes and laundry

    Correct Answer
    B. The 4 - 5 days prior to, and including the day of ovulation
    Explanation
    The most fertile days of a woman's cycle are the 4-5 days prior to, and including the day of ovulation. This is because during this time, the egg is released from the ovary and can be fertilized by sperm. Sperm can survive in the reproductive tract for up to 5 days, so having intercourse in the days leading up to ovulation increases the chances of pregnancy. Timing intercourse during this fertile window is important for couples trying to conceive.

    All of the following are hormones that play an important role in the ovulatory cycle:

    • A.

      Estrogen, progesterone, & galanin

    • B.

      Progesterone, luteinizing hormone, prolactin

    • C.

      Follicle stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, estrogen

    • D.

      Estrogen, luteinizing hormone, riboflavin

    Correct Answer
    C. Follicle stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, estrogen
    Explanation
    The ovulatory cycle is regulated by a complex interplay of hormones. Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) is responsible for the development and maturation of ovarian follicles. Luteinizing hormone (LH) triggers the release of a mature egg from the follicle. Estrogen is important for the growth and development of the uterine lining and the maturation of the egg. Therefore, the combination of FSH, LH, and estrogen is essential for the ovulatory cycle. The other options (progesterone, galanin, prolactin, and riboflavin) do not play a direct role in the ovulatory cycle.

    What is considered a normal sperm count per milliliter?

    • A.

      15 - 20 million

    • B.

      100,000 - 300,000

    • C.

      15,000 - 20,000

    • D.

      12

    Correct Answer
    A. 15 - 20 million
    Explanation
    A normal sperm count per milliliter is considered to be between 15 and 20 million. This range is based on the average number of sperm cells found in a healthy male's ejaculate. Sperm count is an important factor in male fertility, as a lower count may indicate potential issues with fertility. Therefore, it is important for men to have a sufficient number of sperm cells in order to increase the chances of successful fertilization.

    True or False: High FSH levels improve your odds of conception

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    High FSH levels actually indicate a decrease in fertility and can make it more difficult to conceive. FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) is responsible for stimulating the growth and development of eggs in the ovaries. When FSH levels are high, it usually indicates that the ovaries are not responding well to the hormone, which can lead to problems with ovulation and fertility. Therefore, high FSH levels do not improve the odds of conception.

  • 5. 

    What's the primary role of cervical mucus as it relates to conception?

    • A.

      Provides a safe medium in which the sperm travel to fertilize the egg

    • B.

      Important for healthy follicle production

    • C.

      Provides a conducive environment for the production of progesterone

    • D.

      Ensures CV joints are properly lubricated

    Correct Answer
    A. Provides a safe medium in which the sperm travel to fertilize the egg
    Explanation
    Cervical mucus plays a crucial role in conception by providing a safe medium for the sperm to travel through to reach the egg. It helps to protect and nourish the sperm, allowing them to survive and swim more effectively towards the egg for fertilization. Without an adequate amount of cervical mucus, the sperm may not be able to reach the egg successfully, hindering the chances of conception.

  • 6. 

    How long should a healthy woman under the age of 35 wait before contacting a fertility specialist?

    • A.

      3 months

    • B.

      6 months

    • C.

      1 year

    • D.

      Depends... is he cute?

    Correct Answer
    C. 1 year
    Explanation
    A healthy woman under the age of 35 should wait for 1 year before contacting a fertility specialist. This is because it is generally recommended to try to conceive for at least a year before seeking medical assistance, as it can take time for a healthy couple to become pregnant. If after a year of trying, pregnancy has not occurred, it may be beneficial to consult a fertility specialist for further evaluation and guidance.

  • 7. 

    How long are sperm able to survive inside of a woman’s body?

    • A.

      Less than 25 minutes

    • B.

      Up to 5 days

    • C.

      About an hour

    • D.

      Up to 3 weeks with adequate snack food and access to cable t.v.

    Correct Answer
    B. Up to 5 days
    Explanation
    Sperm are able to survive inside a woman's body for up to 5 days. This is because sperm can live in the female reproductive system, specifically in the fallopian tubes, for several days after ejaculation. This allows for a window of opportunity for fertilization to occur if sexual intercourse happens before ovulation. The lifespan of sperm inside the body can vary depending on various factors such as the woman's menstrual cycle, fertility, and the quality of sperm.

  • 8. 

    Which sexual position is thought to be helpful in achieving pregnancy in women with a tilted uterus?

    • A.

      Intercourse while standing up

    • B.

      “doggie style”

    • C.

      Missionary style

    • D.

      Any position in which you're still able watch The Bachelor on DVR

    Correct Answer
    B. “doggie style”
    Explanation
    The answer "doggie style" is thought to be helpful in achieving pregnancy in women with a tilted uterus because this position allows for deeper penetration, which can help the sperm reach the cervix more easily. Additionally, in this position, the angle of penetration can align better with the tilted uterus, increasing the chances of successful fertilization.

    The average volume of a single male ejaculation is about:

    • A.

      2-3 milliliters

    • B.

      Less than 1 milliliter

    • C.

      10 - 20 milliliters

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    A. 2-3 milliliters
    Explanation
    The average volume of a single male ejaculation is about 2-3 milliliters. This is considered to be a normal range for ejaculation volume in men. It is important to note that individual variations can occur, and factors such as age, sexual activity, and overall health can affect the volume of ejaculation.

    All of the following are methods are used to determine ovulation date:

    • A.

      Cervix position, tenderness in abdomen, LH test strips

    • B.

      Basal temperature charting, cervical mucus, lymphnode swelling

    • C.

      LH test strips, basal temperature charting, fertility monitor

    • D.

      Magic 8 ball ('am i ovulating?' 'decidedly so.')

    Correct Answer
    C. LH test strips, basal temperature charting, fertility monitor
    Explanation
    The correct answer is LH test strips, basal temperature charting, and fertility monitor. These methods are commonly used to determine the ovulation date. LH test strips detect the surge in luteinizing hormone, which occurs right before ovulation. Basal temperature charting involves tracking daily temperature changes to identify the slight increase that happens after ovulation. A fertility monitor combines various methods, including LH testing and basal temperature charting, to provide a more accurate prediction of ovulation. These methods are reliable and widely used by women to track their menstrual cycles and increase their chances of conceiving.
