Are you anxious to get pregnant and wondering whether it’s time to seek the help of a fertility specialist? Problems with conceiving are more common than you would think. For many people, what should be a happy and exciting time in their lives, is one filled with frustration, disappointment and sadness. But, for most people, fertility treatments are an option that can lead to a successful pregnancy.
There are some general guidelines about when you should engage the services of a fertility specialist. If you are a woman and under the age of 35, you should seek help if you have not been able to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse. If you are 35 and over, you should seek help after six months of unprotected intercourse. Women who are experiencing irregular periods, problems with ovulation, or have been diagnosed with cancer and need to undergo chemotherapy and/or radiation also need to consider consulting with a fertility expert.
Since infertility affects both women and men equally, it is very important that both partners be involved in the diagnostic portion of treatment to accurately determine the cause of their infertility.
My partner’s not getting pregnant. Who should I see?
Approximately one-third of fertility problems can be attributed to male infertility which could involve a low sperm count, physical problems involving the testicles or penis, anti-sperm antibodies, or problems with sperm motility. The first step that should be taken if you suspect male infertility is to schedule an appointment with a male fertility specialist who will begin the process with a physical exam and complete medical history followed by blood work and a semen analysis.
