For some, deciding to seek help from a fertility specialist may be a very difficult choice. The world of fertility treatment can feel daunting and complex, but the Sincera team is here to help. We’ll start by outlining when you should consider giving our experts a call.
Under 35 Years of Age
If you are under 35 years of age, have regular menstrual cycles, and have been trying to conceive for one year or more without success, it is generally recommended that you seek help from a fertility specialist. The average woman typically has a 20-25% chance of achieving pregnancy each month, so a healthy, fertile couple who has not achieved pregnancy within 12 months may be experiencing fertility issues.
At this point, it is wise to undergo preliminary fertility testing to help identify if any problems exist that may be hindering your success.
Over 35 Years of Age
If you are over 35, have regular menstrual cycles, and have been trying to conceive for six months or more without success, it is recommended that you seek the help of a fertility specialist. This is because as you age, your fertility naturally declines. Therefore, you may be more likely to be experiencing a fertility challenge (such as lower egg reserve or poor egg quality) and may require assistance.
If you have irregular menstrual cycles or have already been diagnosed with a medical condition that may interfere with your abilities to achieve pregnancy – such as PCOS, endometriosis, tubal blockages, male factor infertility (sperm or ejaculation factors) – or if you have experienced two or more miscarriages, it is recommended you see a fertility specialist.
Regardless of your age or existing medical conditions, the Sincera team is committed to helping you achieve your dream of parenthood. Schedule your first consultation with us online and read on to learn more about the conditions that most frequently affect infertile couples.
