When Should You See A Fertility Specialists/Doctor ?

Factors of Infertility

Some of the common causes of infertility include age, weight, hormonal imbalances, certain medical conditions, and sexually transmitted infections. The female partner’s age is a particularly important factor in fertility, as a woman’s ability to produce healthy eggs decreases with age. If the female partner is over 35 and has not been able to conceive after six months of trying, or if she is over 40, it is recommended that she see a fertility specialist.

Being overweight or underweight can also affect fertility. Excess body fat can cause hormonal imbalances that can interfere with ovulation while being underweight can cause a decrease in hormone production and irregular periods. If your weight is affecting your fertility, a fertility specialist can help you develop a healthy diet and exercise plan to help you conceive.

Certain medical conditions can also cause fertility issues. For example, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common cause of infertility and can be managed with medication and other treatments. Other medical conditions that can affect fertility include endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and pelvic inflammatory disease. If you have any of these conditions, it is important to see a fertility specialist for treatment.

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can also cause fertility issues. Chlamydia and gonorrhea are two common STIs that can affect fertility and can be treated with antibiotics. If you have had unprotected sex and are concerned about STIs, it is important to see a doctor for testing and treatment.

Don't Delay

If you are experiencing any of the above factors that can affect fertility, or if you have been trying to conceive without success, it is a good idea to see a fertility specialist. A fertility specialist can help you determine the cause of your fertility issues and develop a treatment plan to help you conceive. This may include medications to stimulate ovulation, surgical procedures to repair any structural issues, or assisted reproductive technologies such as in vitro fertilization (IVF).

It is also important to see a fertility specialist if you have a history of miscarriages or if you have been diagnosed with premature menopause. A fertility specialist can help you understand the cause of your miscarriages and develop a plan to increase your chances of a successful pregnancy. In the case of premature menopause, a fertility specialist can discuss options for preserving your fertility, such as egg freezing or using donor eggs.

In conclusion, if you are trying to conceive and have not been successful after a year of regular, unprotected sex, it may be time to see a fertility specialist. A fertility specialist can help you determine the cause
