When there are problems to conceive, your emotions can be running high and make you hesitate about taking, or not, the next step to achieve a pregnancy. Today, we want to talk to you about the importance of time with respect to your fertility and why you should be patient in this situation.
Like other medical conditions, infertility can be overcome with medical treatment. However, time is a vital factor in achieving a successful pregnancy, especially for women.
Although modern assisted reproduction techniques have increased the age range for having a baby, it is important to analyze when is the ideal time to go to a specialist doctor or a fertility clinic.
For couples, it is a good idea to set a date (it does not have to be too specific) to plan the pregnancy. Not only because of your personal goals but also because undergoing fertility treatment may take time.
Setting a date for the future, in addition, will reduce possible tensions and allow them to face a situation that probably no couple expects: infertility.
In general, specialists recommend scheduling an appointment if they have not conceived after a year of unprotected sex. The initial consultation with a specialist will help you to better understand the problems that you or your partner may have, as well as understand the basics of fertility treatments.
Even meeting with a doctor will let you know that simple treatments, such as scheduled intercourse, increase your chances of achieving pregnancy.
In various studies, the surveyed couples state that when trying to conceive, they may have waited too long to start trying. But infertility is a condition – more common than is believed – that few couples consider.
In fact, the monthly probability of achieving a pregnancy in fertile couples is between 20 and 25 percent, but the probability is reduced if there is any impediment. In couples experiencing infertility, it can be caused by men or women and, in some cases, by both.
However, they should not be discouraged by something that is beyond their control. If they think, as a couple, that they waited too long to try, they will not know if they had obtained the same result one, two or 10 years ago, until consulting the doctor.
It is of utter important that you are patient and do not lose confidence that you can do it. Make your first visit to the fertility clinic and discover the options that exist for you. Often, people are pleasantly surprised to learn that a small adjustment to their lifestyle or fertility treatment is just the solution they need.
Our advice is not to let the waiting and the frustration stop you from achieving your dream of having a baby.
