Trying to conceive
If a couple has not achieved pregnancy within 6 to 12 months of trying, it could be a sign of fertility problems. In individual cases there could be serious problems that are preventing you from conceiving. To avoid unnecessary time going by, it is therefore important to identify the underlying reasons for being unable to conceive. In most cases unwanted childlessness can be treated.
Addressing problems with conceiving is an important focus of our practice.
- Hormone testing
- Observing ovulation via ultrasound
- Determining the optimal time for conception
- Compatibility testing (analysing how the sperm of the partner moves
- in the cervical mucus). There are treatments, including medications
- you can take, to address any abnormalities.
