Who should seek out a fertility evaluation and when?
Infertility is classically defined as the inability of a couple to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse. Couples who meet that criteria are encouraged to consult with one of our physicians. There are other circumstances that warrant consultation sooner. Women who are 35 years of age or older should seek out an evaluation after six months of trying. Women with a family history of early menopause or premature ovarian failure should get an evaluation of their ovarian reserve as soon as possible. Same sex couples are missing either sperm or egg and will need help conceiving their own biological child. Women who have had two or more miscarriages should be evaluated for recurrent pregnancy loss.
An evaluation begins with a thorough history and targeted physical exam. Important topics to be discussed include:
After meeting with you, the physician will typically come up with a plan for further evaluation and treatment. Sometimes patients just need an evaluation to ease their mind. Our goal is to make you feel comfortable and cared for.
