The likelihood of spontaneous pregnancy for a couple who have unprotected sexual intercourse diminishes as time passes. Generally speaking, ‘trying’ for one year is a minimum before undergoing fertility tests. There are, however, a few exceptions to this general rule, such as if the woman is somewhat older (more than 38 years of age) or if there are known factors that have a
negative impact on the fertility of the man or the woman. For instance, it is normal for a woman who does not have a spontaneous menstruation cycle to ask for help earlier. Also a man who had surgery for undescended testicles as a child might perhaps come for a consultation more quickly to find out if this surgery has had any effect on his sperm production.
When couples decide to go to a fertility centre therefore depends on various factors. You can come to our centre at any time, either on your own initiative or after referral by your GP, your gynaecologist, a cooperating fertility centre or an andrologist.
