We are sure that as a couple dreaming of becoming parents, you have many questions in your mind that you desperately want answers to. Remember that conception is a delicate dance between egg and sperm, where there is no one right time to have a baby that fits everyone. Thus, the appropriate time to consult with a fertility specialist varies.
However, infertility is a time-dependent issue influenced by a complex web of factors such as age, lifestyle, and medical conditions that require a deeper understanding and accurate diagnosis by an expert.
If you have been trying to conceive, with each month that passes without a positive pee test, it’s time to get yourself checked for potential fertility problems. As they say, “time is precious, and every minute counts”, so does your fertility.
Infertility is a medical condition of the male and female reproductive systems where a couple fails to achieve pregnancy after one year of regular, unprotected sexual intercourse. This window period is even shorter, dropping to 6 months when couples over 35 years old are trying to conceive.
If you fall into any of the above categories, remember you’re not alone – at least 1 in 8 couples have difficulty conceiving, which means infertility is common.
Studies have shown that in roughly one-third of cases when couples cannot conceive on their own, a female component is the sole cause of infertility. Another third of the time, infertility is caused by a combination of factors in both partners. Thus, a thorough assessment of each partner is required to determine the best course of action.
So, you can see, there are various reasons why you may be having trouble conceiving.
