Infertility is defined as the inability to achieve conception after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 10% of women have difficulty getting pregnant or staying pregnant.
If you have not conceived after a full year of regular sexual intercourse without using contraception, then you may be struggling with infertility. For women over the age of 35, this time frame decreases to six months. Infertility is also considered when a woman achieves conception but is unable to attain the pregnancy. In men, sperm function can be affected by the presence of other diseases (high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney disease, hormonal problems, etc.), physical factors such as a varicocele (testicular varicose veins), infection, congenital disease, or inherited genetic factors.
You should see a fertility specialist if you are under 35 and have been trying for pregnancy for a year. If you are 35 or older, after 6 months. If you 40 or over, you should see a specialist even if you haven’t started trying.
