When should I see a fertility specialist?
When you really want to have a baby, the wait time, however short or long, seems endless. Chances are, if you are not pregnant in the first several weeks of trying, a dozen questions cross your mind: Why am I not pregnant yet? Am I ovulating normally? Is my partner’s sperm count normal? What’s wrong with us? It turns out that the time to conceive varies greatly between different couples. While it is important not to get unduly stressed about taking some time to conceive, it is also important not to lose time in figuring out any health issues that might be interfering with your family building plans.
Below are good reasons to see a fertility specialist if you and/or your partner:
When it comes to seeing a fertility specialist, sometimes the sooner is indeed the better. Women are starting to seek infertility consultation at a younger age, mainly due to increased health awareness. Sometimes instincts work best. If you believe you would just like to get yourself tested and make sure your fertility profile is on the right track, we encourage you to consult your primary healthcare physician or your OB/GYN. Both can advise you on how to chart your cycle, time your intercourse and in general, how to gear your lifestyle towards having a baby.
