You Don’t Have to Wait 12 Months to See Your Gynecologist
Infertility is usually defined as not being able to conceive and maintain a pregnancy after 12 months of trying. However, that doesn’t mean that you have to wait for 12 months before seeing your gynecologist if you are concerned. By seeing your gynecologist as soon as you become concerned that there could be a problem, you can learn important information about treatment options. That way, you’ll know what steps you’ll take next if you do reach the 12-month mark.
When to Schedule a Consultation
If one or both partners are over the age of 35, you may want to see your gynecologist after 6 months of trying to conceive. If you or your partner is over the age of 40, or if you have known fertility issues, you may want to schedule a consultation before you start trying.
