Find out when is the right time to see a fertility doctor when you’re TTC
When you’re trying to conceive (TTC), it can be frustrating when you keep seeing negative pregnancy tests. However, how do you know when it’s time to see a fertility doctor? The Fertility Center of Las Vegas is all about empowering hopeful parents. That’s why our Las Vegas fertility doctors are explaining when to make an appointment with a specialist.
When should you see a fertility doctor?
The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) has helped take the guesswork out of this question by developing helpful guidelines. As a result, our Las Vegas fertility doctors use these guidelines to advise people who are TTC.
- Women who are under age 35 should see a fertility doctor if they have not conceived after having 12 months of unprotected sex.
- When women reach age 35, they should make this appointment if pregnancy has not occurred after six months of trying.
- Additionally, hopeful parents with known fertility issues should visit a fertility doctor as soon as they want to try for a baby. Examples of fertility issues include endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a low sperm count, a family history of early menopause or a history of cancer treatment.
Our Las Vegas fertility doctors also want people to know that trying doesn’t necessarily mean having sex with the intention of having a baby. It refers to having sex without the use of protection like an intrauterine device (IUD), birth control pills or condoms.
