If a couple haven’t been able to conceive after 12 to 18 months of contraceptive-free sexual intercourse, it is vital to seek medical advice for a fertility evaluation.
There are cases, though, in which a visit to the doctor is necessary, even before a year of efforts to have a baby has passed. This is when:
- There is a history of miscarriages
- A woman suffers from intense pain during her period, which might be a sign of endometriosis
- Surgeries in the uterus or fallopian tubes have taken place
- There are disorders in a woman’s menstrual cycle
- Couples have a history of sexual problems (erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation) as well as sexually transmitted diseases
- A woman’s age is over 35
