A Goal and a Journey

It’s a happy new year! Or perhaps not as happy as you hoped it would be without a little one on the way. Have you been wishing for a baby? Dreaming of another member of your family? If so, maybe you want to make a goal to learn as much as you can about the process, meet with a specialist, and find out what the best options are to create the family you’ve always wanted. Here are some facts to get you started:

  • You should talk to a specialist if you:

  • Are younger than 35 and have been trying to conceive for about a year

  • Are older than 35 and have been trying to have a baby for six months or more

  • Are more than 40 years old

  • Have irregular periods

  • Have a medical history involving chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or endometriosis

  • Have fibroids, or a history of gonorrhea or Chlamydia

  • Have a partner who has had groin surgery, mumps as an adult, chemotherapy, or radiation.

  • Infertility affects about 10 percent of all couples

  • About 35 percent of the time, the issue is with the woman’s fertility; another 35 percent of the time, it’s the man’s; the rest of the time, both partners contribute to the issue.

When you visit a fertility specialist, you’ll discuss your medical history and what further evaluations are needed to come up with a plan. Questions you’ll review include your ovulation schedule, if your fallopian tubes function normally, how your uterus looks, and if your partner’s sperm are average in number and functionality. After a diagnosis is reached, you’ll work on a treatment plan to guide your journey!
