Human Reproduction: Sex, Science and Society

Are you trying to conceive? Do you want to prevent conception (contraception)? Would you like to know more about your fertility? Have you considered how social factors influence the choices we make about sex and reproduction? What about the latest technological developments in assisted conception (otherwise known as IVF)? Join world leader in human reproduction, Laureate Professor John Aitken, as we explore the biological, technological, and social factors that influence human reproduction.In this course you will learn how sperm and eggs are made; the events that result in fertilisation and conception; and how a healthy baby develops and is born. These biological principles will be studied alongside social factors such as the construct of family, education, poverty, and sexuality. This course will also examine the enormous role of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs) such as IVF in modern society.
