How long should my partner and I try for a baby before seeking help for Infertility?
There is no wrong or the right amount of time to wait before seeing your doctor, but a lot will depend on your age and personal circumstances. Suppose you are a couple under 30 years of age and have no reason to suspect problems (like previous surgery or irregular periods). In that case, it is reasonable to try for a couple of years before seeking help. Women over 30 have been trying for 1 year, and after 35 years, if she is trying for more than 6 months without a result would be advised to seek help earlier.
There are more childless women today than ever before – but why? First comes love, then comes marriage, but what about the baby in the baby carriage?
Recent studies show that childless women are on the rise. One out of every six couples is infertile. For those born in 1946, just 9 percent had no children, whereas, for women born in 1970, this figure has risen to 17 percent. Very few women are childless by choice; the majority are by circumstance. Let us discuss today’s medical circumstances behind women’s childlessness or Infertility.
