Find out when it’s time to start considering fertility treatment.
Trying to conceive isn’t always easy and if you have been trying to get pregnant for some time but haven’t be able to then you may be wondering at what point you should turn to an OBGYN in Denver, CO. Should you consider fertility treatment? If so, what fertility treatment is right for you? We understand that this can be a stressful time, and our goal as your doctor is to walk you through the process so that you know what to expect.
When to See a Doctor
Some couples may get pregnant rather quickly while others may take a bit longer. While this doesn’t necessarily mean that there is an issue you may want to turn to our Denver obstetricians for the following situations,
- You are a woman over the age of 35: If you’ve been trying to get pregnant for over six months then it’s suggested that you visit a doctor.
- You have irregular periods, endometriosis or polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS): there are certain conditions that can make it more difficult to conceive.
- You have a family history of early menopause or premature ovarian failure.
- You’ve had two miscarriages in a row: While miscarriages are common, experiencing two or more is not common. This is something that should be evaluated by a medical professional.
When should I consider fertility treatment?
This is a very personal decision and one you and your partner should discuss. Of course, while there are some people who decide to wait to consider fertility treatment it can sometimes be a benefit to the couple to come in sooner for an evaluation. It’s recommended that you come in for fertility testing if you haven’t gotten pregnant and you’ve been trying for six months to one year.
Remember, infertility can happen to anyone, no matter their age. While young couples may not necessarily choose to go down the route of fertility treatment they should consider at least getting basic fertility testing to make sure there isn’t a problem that could be treated. After all, some conditions that cause infertility can get worse over time; therefore, the sooner you seek help the better.
