When to Call A Doctor
Speak with a physician after one year of unsuccessfully trying to conceive. At this point, you may want to begin an infertility evaluation.
If you are over 35, consider consulting your physician after four to six months of trying to conceive. Pregnancy is less likely to occur without fertility treatment at this age.
If you are undergoing any fertility treatment, notify your infertility specialist about pelvic pain and abdominal swelling.
The chance of a successful pregnancy depends on the cause of infertility. More than half of couples who seek infertility treatments eventually become pregnant.
