FertilitySmarts explains Spontaneous Conception
Achieving pregnancy through in vitro fertilization (IVF), intrauterine insemination (IUI) or other assisted reproductive technologies (ART) are often referred to as assisted conception.
Despite previous infertility, some individuals or couples may be able to achieve pregnancy without medical intervention. The likelihood of achieving spontaneous conception is greater if the initial infertility was not caused by poor sperm.
