If You Are Below 35 & Healthy

It usually takes up to a year to conceive after you start trying. Count 12 months from the time you start having unprotected sexual intercourse.
If you are healthy but still not pregnant in this period, you should see a specialist. Dr. Shivani Bhutani, Eva IVF Hospital, Ludhiana advises that normal healthy couples should wait for a year and try for pregnancy naturally before coming to us.
“Time your intercourse properly and take care of your diet and lifestyle habits. It may happen for you in this period.”
If you are above 35
For women above 35 years of age, do not wait beyond 6 months. It is not that 35 is old, but it is a pivotal age for reproductive ability when the chances of conception start becoming lesser.
The egg supply starts dipping. So, if six months have passed in trying naturally, see an infertility specialist/reproductive endocrinologist.
If you are above 40
Still, struggling with conception at 40? See your doctor immediately. Eggs quantity and quality both decrease after 40, so you may need assistance or specialist advice on getting pregnant.
There are chances of chromosomal abnormalities in the embryos too which requires screening.
If you have PCOS or Endometriosis
In case you have an issue that you are aware of, then see your specialist right away. Women who have polycystic ovaries (PCOS) or endometriosis, must get an evaluation even before they start trying for pregnancy.
According to Dr. Shivani, “In a known reproductive abnormality, there is no point in wasting precious time.
Polycystic women do not ovulate, so they require medications. Endometriosis also may have caused a blockage in fallopian tubes or other problems, or maybe nothing. Better get yourself evaluated right away.”
If you have other Issues or Symptoms
No matter what your age or health, to fulfill your dream of motherhood, look at each aspect carefully.
Thyroid problems, overweight, irregular periods, and pelvis pain indicate that you must consult a fertility clinic at once.
Enormous Options for Motherhood
Your dream of motherhood is within reach, thanks to Assisted reproductive techniques or ART, there are plenty of doors open for people with all sorts of fertility issues.
The options that suit you depend on your situation and the reasons for infertility.
Maybe you require treatment, or your spouse or both of you need to undergo a mix of treatments together. Treatments involve medicines to help with the sexual hormones and minor procedures to help in conception.
The main two types of procedures are:
IUI- Short for Intrauterine Insemination wherein sperm is obtained from the male and inserted directly inside the women’s uterus in the ovulation period for pregnancy.
IVF- Short for In-vitro Fertilization, it is commonly known as the test tube baby method. In this process, the eggs and sperm are retrieved, combined, and fertilized in the lab.
The resulting embryo is grown for three days and implanted in the womb for successful conception.
ICSI – A very popular male infertility treatment is Intracytoplasmic sperm injection or ICSI. It is a very credible Assisted Reproductive Technique, with a high success rate.
Of all the infertility treatments, In Vitro Fertilization is the most effective fertility treatment that takes the least time in pregnancy compared to other treatments or natural ways.
Although it is a detailed scientific process, basic knowledge is important for both of you to understand. The entire process of IVF can be simply distributed into 4 steps.
- Ovarian Stimulation: Medication containing hormones are given to the female to increase the quantity and quality of eggs.
- Egg Retrieval: Released eggs are retrieved from the ovaries via a minor procedure under local or mild anesthesia.
- In-vitro Fertilization: In the Embryology Lab, fertilization of eggs with sperm takes place after which embryos are developed.
- Embryo Transfer: The embryos are laden into a flexible tube and implanted into the woman’s womb. This completes one cycle of IVF.
