Case Study:

Isabella and

Christopher are a young couple, ages 26 and 28, who have been married for two years and have not been using birth control for the past year. They are concerned and have come to the infertility clinic where you are working as a graduate nurse. You explain to them that infertility is not uncommon and occurs in 10- 15% of couples. During the extensive history of both partners you review not only sexual history but nutrition and exercise. 

1) You need to discuss the menstrual cycle with them so they understand that the chance of conceiving is increased at the time of ovulation. Isabella's cycle is 28- 30 days. The menstrual phase occurs in days 1 through 6 of the cycle.  Provide education to this couple on the menstrual cycle and when ovulation occurs.
