Both infertility and sterility are classified as a clinical condition. It is primarily defined as an individual's inability to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse, and therefore, infertility can occur in both men and women. The share of female infertility among infertile couples is about 40%, and in about 25% of infertility cases, both partners have conditions that prevent them from conceiving.
Endometriosis is one of the most common gynaecological disorder in which the tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus (the endometrium) starts growing outside of the uterine cavity, where it responds to the hormonal changes of the menstrual cycle in the same way as it would inside the uterus and bleeds.
Summer is the time of year for holidays, traveling, sports, sunbathing and swimming. However, for many women this period is also associated with many unpleasant gynaecological problems which are exacerbated by heat, tight clothing such as swimsuits, sitting for long periods of time, or swimming in pools or stagnant waters. The quality of water in natural bodies of water should therefore be carefully considered, but even pool water with a high content of chlorine can impair the natural pH of the vagina.
