When Should we seek help!
If you have had no success in conceiving after 12 months of regular unprotected sexual intercourse it is time to contact us.
Problems conceiving are many and varied and are different for every couple. They can include problems with eggs or sperm, fallopian tubes or uterus, frequent miscarriage, endometriosis, or hormonal and autoimmune disorders. Ovulatory disorders, such as irregular ovulation, account for approximately 20-30% of cases where there is difficulty conceiving.
Your Age and Fertility
You may not know that your fertility is in direct correlation to your age, with fertility dropping to about 50% after the age of 35, a further drop to 30% in your early 40’s, and continual reduction until about the age of 50 when menopause occurs. Age plays a large part in the fertility equation. If you have concerns about your age and conception visit our fertility chart, or please call us to discuss your fertility options for the future.
