Fertility Test

General Information

It can be quite devastating to know that becoming a biological parent doesn’t always come easily and as and when we wish to be. In an ideal world, couples trying to get pregnant would only need to have unprotected sexual intercourse before they became pregnant. However, in the real world, this is hardly the case as couples can go for months and even a few years of trying before accepting there might be something wrong.  Many such people want to find the solution to their problems, while others are at ease to wait and watch approach to pregnancy. Medical advancement, especially in the field of assisted reproduction techniques, has now made it easier for couples to become biological parents. Although it may seem intimidating to some ART provides the best chance for infertile couples to conceive. The only question that remains then is what’s the best time to visit an infertility clinic?

Time, the great equalizer.

Infertility could affect anyone at any age, however, the chances of needing an infertility treatment increases as you grow older. Do you fall in any of the below brackets?

  • Under 35 with regular cycles, unprotected intercourse and no pregnancy after 1 year.
  • 35 to 39 with regular cycles, unprotected intercourse and no pregnancy after 6 months.
  • 40 or over with regular cycles, unprotected intercourse and no pregnancy after 3 months.

If so it would be best to assume the worst and consult a fertility specialist at the earliest. Remember time is of the essence in such scenarios.

It could be him.

One third of all infertility related cases are caused due to male factor infertility. And infertility is a female problem is just a myth.  Ideally, during the initial testing and pre-screening phase both male and female fertility should be tested for. There could be several reasons for male infertility including, low sperm count, low sperm motility as well as abnormal sperm growth.

Watching the clock, considering your past.

There are no sure signs of there being chances of infertility in men or women and hence extensive tests are needed to confirm the same. There are however some signs that could provide an indication of the problem. These include:

  • Irregularity of your menstrual cycles on a regular basis could indicate deeper problems such as PCOS which could cause infertility.
  • Diagnosis of endometriosis.
  • History of genetic disorders on either side of the family tree.
  • Multiple miscarriages.
  • A history of pelvic surgery (such as the removal of an ovarian cyst, ablation of endometriosis, ectopic pregnancy, tubal surgery, or ruptured appendix)

These conditions could serve as a red flag for women who are trying to conceive but have been unable to do so. Women with any of these conditions should ideally seek an appointment with trusted infertility specialist such as IVF Spring Fertility center in Mumbai.
