The average woman has a 15 to 25 percent chance of conceiving a baby each cycle and about 85 percent of fertile couples will be successful within 12 months of having regular unprotected sex. However, some couples face challenges when it comes to conceiving.
Infertility is the inability to become pregnant after more than one year of regular, unprotected sexual intercourse. It is estimated that just over 10 percent of women of reproductive age have problems conceiving. In one third of cases, the problem lies with the woman’s reproductive system and in another third the problem lies with the man’s reproductive system.
In the remaining third the problem lies with both partners or is not known. After a specialist’s investigation of both partners and treatment, 30-40 percent of couples achieve a pregnancy within two years.
What’s causing the problem?
You will have a physical examination and a detailed personal history will be taken. Obesity, acne and menstrual irregularities will be noted, and you may be asked about eating disorders, stress, occupational hazards. Working with toxins, for example, exercise methods. Sexual pattern, previous contraception and lifestyle habits such as alcohol, smoking and prescribed or illegal drugs will also be asked.
Blood tests may be carried out to known reasons for infertility an excess of prolactin (a hormone regulating menstruation), excess or deficiency of thyroid hormone or an excess of androgens such as testosterone.
If you have endometriosis, uterine fibroids, polyps or ovarian cysts, the doctor may refer you to a gynecologist or endocrinologist for assessment.
For your partner, the doctor may suggest a sperm analysis. Finding out early on that he has too few sperm, no sperm at all or slow-moving or misshapen sperm may lessen the chance of you having to undergo invasive tests. (though if you have other physical symptoms you may still need investigation as well).
