When Should Couple Consult A Fertility Consultant?

When should continue on own and when should seek fertility specialist help?
It is estimated that couples one in eight have infertility, a condition that is defined as a lack of success to conceive after one year in women under the age of 35. Couples who don’t have children month after month often wonder when and by whom they should seek help. Stress and pressure suffered by women and their partners can be very devastating. Fortunately, for most couples, there is help, and a successful conception can be achieved.
The difficulty in conceiving these days is a common problem for couples in India. Don’t be discouraged by a series of negative pregnancy tests. Doctors advice young couples in their twenties and early thirties to try naturally up to one year. Conception is a very complex concept and only occurs during the fertile period of a woman’s menstrual cycle. You might not get pregnant for the first time; even if you try it naturally for a year, then there may be a problem if you can’t get pregnant.

Reasons Why and When Couple Should Consult A Fertility Consultant?
Although it’s easy to be impatient if you don’t get pregnant soon, it’s also important not to delay getting help on time. It’s time to talk to a doctor if any of the following conditions apply to you.
If having sex without contraception and conception for more than 12 months
The standard rule is that conception requires around five to six months. If age under 35 and have had unprotected sex for 12 months, you should consult a fertility specialist.
In Indian women, ovarian reserve usually begins to decline rapidly after the age of 35 years. With increasing age, egg supply, and fertility quality to healthy women slowly decreases and is completely stopped by the age of 40-45 years, which causes menopause.
As a woman ages, the quality and number of eggs decreases. (Pros and cons of aging!)
- If anyone older than 35 years or older and have tried to get pregnant for six months without contraception, you should contact a fertility specialist.
- If anyone 40 years old or older, you are technically in a pregnancy risk category and you must and should visit a fertility specialist first. The risk of miscarriage is more significant at this age.
If Had Three or More Miscarriages Continuously:
Miscarriage occurs if you lose a pregnancy within 20 weeks of pregnancy. Most often, spontaneous abortions occur because the egg or sperm has the wrong number of chromosomes, so the fertilized egg cannot develop normally. Miscarriages also caused by problems with early development: eggs are not appropriately implanted into the uterus or have structural defects.
If you have had two or more abortions, you should consider seeing a fertility specialist to monitor health when you are trying to get pregnant. If there is any condition that causes this spontaneous abortion, you should know it.
If You Have a Chronic Disease:
Since you already know whether you have a chronic or long-term illness, you are almost meeting a particular doctor. At the same time visit, a fertility specialist if having any one of these conditions.
- Genetic disorders
- Heart disease
- Kidney disease
- Thyroid condition
You might also want to see a specialist if you have cancer (chemotherapy) or if mother has early menopause.
If you identify with one of the reasons above and below visit a doctor at Neelima Mom Fertility Clinic, and can get answers to fertility questions.
Several health problems negatively impact a woman’s fertility potential. Thyroid disease in women can cause hormonal imbalances. It is known that women who suffer from thyroid disease are affected by conditions such as infertility, miscarriage, fetal brain development disorders, and many more. However, if a thyroid abnormality is detected, and the patient is on medication, the woman can get pregnant through fertility treatments. Consult a Fertility Specialist regularly during treatment.
Women suffering from PCOS or endometriosis are advised to consult a fertility specialist if they decide to become pregnant. Endometriosis produces an unhealthy pelvic environment, which can be associated with damaged tubing and weaker ovaries and reduces the possibility of natural conception.
Undiagnosed fertility problems can be another reason to consult with a fertility specialist. In this case, the symptoms that you need to pay attention to are irregular menstruation, pelvic pain, missed menstruation, and some miscarriages that may have occurred in the past. If having any of these symptoms, you are advised to consult a fertility specialist without wasting time.
Women suffering from chronic conditions such as kidney complications, hypertension, and cancer, genetically transmitted diseases such as diabetes, Alzheimer’s, etc., are advised to consult a fertility specialist for a healthy pregnancy care plan.

Fertility problems can cause these symptoms:
- No period: Person may not ovulate, so a person may not get periods.

- Bleeding in between periods: Bleeding between periods or after intercourse can cause by uterine polyps or myomas or cervical lesions.
Extremely Severe Menstrual Periods: if Menstrual period bleeding is very heavy like bleeding more than seven days, and changing more than one pad or pad per hour. Uterine myoma or endocrine abnormalities can cause this. We recommend consulting a doctor.
Have a History of Sexually Transmitted Infections

- In women, they can cause scars in the fallopian tubes, which can prevent the meeting of eggs and sperm.
- In men, they can cause recurrent infections that can affect mobility, function, and sperm count.
Infertility is not just a woman’s problem. Male infertility occurs in 40-45% of cases. In men, infertility is caused usually by lousy sperm. Factors that cause infertility in male is cancer or cancer treatments, testicular or pelvic injuries, varicoceles, diabetes, obesity. However, in many cases, no underlying causes are identified. Semen analysis must always be carried out correctly in the initial evaluation to consider other treatment options.
Problems like premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction can also cause conceptual difficulties and are usually addressed by sexologists and psychologists. All types of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) must be treated because it can affect the quantity and quality of sperm. If any of these factors are observed, it is advisable to consult a fertility specialist immediately.
