Why see a Fertility Specialist

A Few Reasons Why You Should Visit a IVF Specialist

If you’re struggling to get pregnant, it’s time to consider other options. An IVF specialist will evaluate you and your partner to determine the cause of infertility and offer the most appropriate treatment.

Here are some reasons to visit an IVF specialist:

Reproductive Issues

Some conditions can cause infertility, including:
 
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS): PCOS hinders a woman’s ability to ovulate as they should because the hormones are out of balance. Failure to ovulate regularly makes it difficult for women to get pregnant. Fertility specialists treat PCOS using injectable or oral drugs.

Endometriosis: Endometriosis occurs when the endometrium grows outside the uterus. The endometrium (tissue that lines the uterus) grows on the fallopian tubes, ovaries, or other pelvic cavities instead of the uterus. 

If you don’t get your period for more than a month, you may want to visit a fertility specialist to diagnose the main cause. They can recommend the best treatment, which sometimes may involve surgery or medication.

Primary ovarian insufficiency (POI): POI means that a woman’s ovaries stop functioning normally. The condition results in a lower possibility of natural conception. Egg donation combined with in vitro fertilization (IVF) is the most effective treatment for women with this condition.

You Are 35 Years or Older

Ovulation happens less frequently, and the egg quantity and quality begin to decline as women age. Schedule an appointment if you are 35 years or older and have not conceived within six months of having unprotected sex. A fertility specialist can determine what may be causing the problems you are facing. 

Women who are 40 years or older fall under high-risk pregnancy. The reduction in the egg quality increases the probability of miscarriage in older women. If you are trying to conceive at 40 years, consult with your physician to know the risks.

You’ve Tried to Get Pregnant for More Than a Year

If you are below 35 years and have been having sex without birth control for 12 months and have not yet conceived, visit a fertility specialist. They will examine you to determine why you are experiencing difficulties and provide treatment options.

Low Sperm Count

Low sperm count can make it hard to conceive naturally. If you’ve tried to conceive for more than a year, visit a specialist with your partner. They will conduct a semen analysis to check the quantity and quality of the sperm and recommend the most appropriate treatment.

You Have Heavy Bleeding, Irregular Periods, or No Period

Fertility issues can cause the following symptoms: 

Heavy bleeding: If you are frequently changing your pads or tampons throughout the day, you may have heavy bleeding. This can be a sign of an underlying medical condition.
No period: It’s a sign of no ovulation. This may indicate extreme infertility issues.
Irregular periods: Ovulation disorders could cause the wrong hormone signals to be sent by the brain, resulting in inconsistent cycles.
