I have been trying for a baby.
If you having been trying to have a baby for some time, you might be wondering if it will ever happen, and how. You are not alone in thinking this.
Know the facts.
About 1 in 6 couples experience fertility problems.
If you are under the age of 35 and have been trying to conceive for the past year, or if you are over 35 years of age and trying for the past 6 months, please reach out to your doctor to discuss it.
Fertility problems could be caused by either the woman’s reproductive system or the man’s reproductive system. About 40-50% of cases are due to female factors and about 30-40% cases are due to male factors. Sometimes it could be due to both partners as well. And at times, there could be no apparent cause for it, also called unexplained fertility.
Don't hesitate to ask for help.
It is perfectly okay to approach a fertility doctor to help you if you are having difficulty in conceiving. You doctor will guide you to get some tests done to assess the reason behind not being able to conceive.
Depending on your results, you could be directed to a fertility specialist that could help you deep dive into the cause of the problem. Your doctor could suggest assistive reproductive treatments (ARTs) based on the cause of infertility.
