When to seek medical advice
Trying for a baby with no result can be a very stressful experience. Even for a normal fertile couple, aged 25, who have regular well-timed sexual intercourse, the chance of conceiving is 1 in 4 every month. One out of six couples trying to conceive is estimated to experience problems, while 1 out of 10 couples needs medical help. Some couples might need a fertility treatment.
If you are younger than 30 years old and you have had unprotected sexual intercourse for 12 months with no result (no pregnancy), you should seek medical advice. You should visit a reproduction gynaecologist for the basic fertility check. Female fertility is compromised after the age of 35 and further deteriorates after the age of 40. This is why, if you are older than 35, you should visit the doctor after 6 months of trying. The doctor will run the necessary tests (fertility tests for men and women) and inform you about your fertility in detail.
