Should we be concerned?
Couples assume that they are fertile and spend most of their lives using contraception to avoid an unplanned pregnancy.
Then, when a couple is ready to start their family, they are surprised if they have difficulty conceiving. This common problem affects one out of six couples.
What is Infertility?
- If you have not conceived after twelve months of having sex without using contraception, you have infertility.
- If you are a woman who is thirty-five years old or older, after six months of unprotected sex without conceiving, you are infertile.
- If you are you getting pregnant spontaneously, but have had two or more miscarriages, you should seek fertility evaluation.
- If you have reason to believe that you will have difficulty conceiving (e.g., diagnosis of endometriosis, prior chemotherapy treatment) you should be screened for infertility, too.
Whatever we find, there is good treatment available to help you.
