For healthy couples under the age of 35 who are trying to conceive, most fertility experts will advise to see a specialist after one year of unsuccessful conception.
The timeline shortens the older you get. Women over the age of 35 should see a specialist after 6 months of unsuccessful conception and those over the age of 40 should see a specialist as soon as they’re ready to conceive.
Though reproductive medicine has experienced great medical progress over the last decade, the issues of time and age are still two factors that can be difficult to overcome.
Therefore, it is recommended that couples who are struggling find out their fertility options sooner, rather than later.
