Best Fertility Testing Solution for Female/Male
Fertility testing as a rule is prescribed when serveral has been attempting unsuccessfully to consider for one year or if the lady is more established than 35, for half year, Infertility can occur for various reasons, so the partners should be tested.
More than 80% of couples where the woman is under 40 will conceive naturally within one year of having regular unprotected sex. (Regular unprotected sex means having sex every two to three days without using contraception.) Most couples will conceive within one year if:
- the woman is under 40 years of age, and
- they don’t use contraception and have regular sex (every two to three days)
Of those who don’t conceive in the first year, about half will do so in the second year. If you’re young and healthy and you haven’t been trying for a baby for very long, you may be advised to keep trying for a little longer.
However you MUST consider Fertility Testing if you still haven’t conceived even after one year of trying.
When to get medical help
You should see us before the 1 year period if you:
- are a woman aged 36 or over – the decline in fertility speeds up when a woman reaches her mid-30s
- have any reason to be concerned about your fertility – for example, if you’ve had treatment for cancer or you think you might have had a sexually transmitted infection (STI)
Fertility testing is the process by which ‘Female/Male Fertility’ is assessed, both generally and also to find the fertile window.
Questions we may ask
- We will ask you about your medical and sexual history.
- Previous pregnancies and children
- Your Sex Life
- Length of time since stopping contraception
- Medical history and symptoms
- Medications you have been taking.
Based on the above we may be able to carry out an initial assessment to check things that may be causing your fertility problems and advise you about what to do next. Alternatively, after asking you questions, we may carry out a physical examination or refer you for appropriate tests.
We may need to evaluate you for a healthy body mass index (BMI) or check for any other signs of infection, fibroids, ovarian tumours, PID or endometriosis.
After a physical examination, you may be referred to our infertility specialist team for further tests. Fertility tests can take time and female fertility decreases with age, so it’s advisable to make an appointment early on. It’s always best for both partners to visit us as fertility problems can affect a man or a woman, or sometimes both. Trying to conceive can be an emotional process, so it’s important to support each other as much as possible. Stress is just one factor that can affect fertility.
