When should you see a doctor for infertility?

Are you and your partner struggling with infertility? You’re not alone. Research estimates that approximately 1 in 6 people across the world struggle with this issue. It affects people in every country and across all socioeconomic categories. Despite this commonality, infertility treatments are not usually common knowledge. Take a look at the sections below. We’ll go over why you might want to visit a doctor for your infertility and how they can help you.

What factors might indicate that you should see an infertility doctor?

There are a few different reasons why someone might want to see an infertility doctor. If you’re considering scheduling a visit with one, here are a few of the most common circumstances that might necessitate a consultation:

  • If you’re under 35 and have been trying for one year — People under 35 years of age who have been trying to get pregnant for at least a year typically visit infertility doctors. Unsuccessful attempts at this age range may signal that a couple could use professional assistance with infertility.
  • If you’re 35 or older and have been trying for six months — Someone over 35 years of age who wants to get pregnant and has been trying to conceive for at least six months is generally recommended to see an infertility doctor. People 35 or older may sometimes experience higher infertility rates or unique conditions that may affect fertility, like early menopause.
  • If your menstrual cycles are irregular — Another reason to see an infertility doctor is if your menstrual cycles are irregular. Irregular periods often indicate that ovulation is also irregular, which can impact your fertility.
  • If you have PCOS, thyroid disease or endometriosis — There are several conditions that have the potential to impact fertility. Some of these include polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), thyroid disease and endometriosis. If you have any of the aforementioned and are trying to get pregnant, you may want to consult a specialist for guidance.
  • If your partner has an abnormal sperm analysis — Infertility can be traced back to poor sperm count, motility and morphology. If your partner has undergone a sperm analysis and results have come back abnormal, you may want to speak further with a fertility doctor to discuss your next steps.

There are a few ways that an infertility doctor can help.
