Like many medical conditions, infertility is something that generally will not get better without medical treatment. In fact, the longer you wait to get an accurate diagnosis, often the lower your chances are for a successful pregnancy. It is not unusual for those seeking infertility treatment to not see eye to eye with regard to when the time is right to seek a fertility doctor, or even what if any treatment is necessary.
For couples struggling to get pregnant, it may be a good idea to set a date (it does not have to be super specific one) that you both agree would signal, ”it’s time to get help”. Having a date set reasonably in the future can allow for less stress and less opportunity for difficult conversations to arise along the way.
In the interim, it may be a good idea to make an appointment to speak with a fertility doctor that you feel would be the best fit for your individual needs. Initial consultations with a fertility specialist don’t have to be costly and can help you get a better understating of what issues you or your partner may be experiencing, as well as learn about the types of treatments such as IVF and IUI. Meeting with a doctor can help you better understand how even simple things such as timed intercourse can help you boost your chances of achieving pregnancy.
