If you’re thinking about having a baby, you may want to know more about the process of fertilisation. Sex education at school often jumps straight from sex to a pregnant belly, but there is an amazing sequence of events which leads up to conception. This remarkable video takes you inside the human body and the processes of sex, ovulation, ejaculation and fertilisation: the miracle of conception.

Conception demystified

You will see for yourself just how many factors need to coincide for a baby to be made and exactly how each one is orchestrated by the human body to best facilitate the process.

If you are trying to conceive (TTC) or having difficulties with fertility and conception, this video may also help you to understand just what your gynaecologist is trying to determine through tests and check-ups. It can be unpleasant to have your body assessed without having an understanding of what processes are being observed.

One amazing fact from the video to whet your appetite: on average, a woman ovulates only 400 times during her lifetime, so there are only 400 opportunities for conception to take place.

Take a look at the video and marvel at the wonders of the human body:
