ffAdmin published a new article:

Some say if you just relax, you’ll get pregnant. Others tell you that they got pregnant on the first try. All you know for sure is you’ve been trying to conceive, nothing is happening, and you’re trying to decide if you are just impatient or if it’s time to perhaps see a doctor.

Getting started is always difficult. Furthermore if it concerns fertility issues preventing you from successful conceiving and pregnancy.
If one is having problems getting pregnant, she has to see GP. They will look at a medical history and give a physical examination. They may also recommend some lifestyle changes to help fertility.
Unless there are reasons that may put a woman at high risk of infertility, such as cancer treatment, she’ll usually only be considered for infertility investigations and treatment. (If she’s been trying for a baby for at least a year without becoming pregnant)
This is what usually happens next.
If appropriate, your GP can refer you to a fertility specialist at an NHS hospital or fertility clinic.
The specialist will ask about your fertility history, and may carry out a physical examination.
Women may have tests to check the levels of hormones in their blood and how well their ovaries are working. They may also have an ultrasound scan or X-ray to see if there are any blockages or structural problems. Men may be asked for a semen sample to test sperm quality.
If IVF is the best treatment for you, the specialist will refer you to an assisted conception unit.
The most important thing here is not to waste precious time. Fertility decreases with age, it’s well known. We’d better apply for help as soon as possible.


Getting pregnant isn’t always easy. For how long should you try to get pregnant before you see a doctor? When should you keep going on your own, and when should you seek fertility help? While it’s easy to become impatient if you don’t get pregnant right away. It’s also important you don’t delay getting timely help. Not everyone needs to wait six months to a year before getting help. In fact, some men and women should seek help much sooner. If you or your partner have any risk factors or symptoms of infertility. You should talk to your doctor now. For example, if a woman has irregular periods, endometriosis, or PCOS. Or if either partner has a history of sexually transmitted diseases. Seeking help right away makes sense. If you have a family history of early menopause or primary ovarian insufficiency. Talking to your doctor soon is recommended. Also, if you have two miscarriages in a row. You should ask for a fertility evaluation. Miscarriage is common, but repeated miscarriage is not.


There are many reasons why a miscarriage may happen, although the cause is often not identified. A bit of research here ~
If a miscarriage happens during the first trimester of pregnancy, it’s usually caused by problems with the unborn baby. About three in every four miscarriages happen during this period.
If a mc happens during the second trimester of pregnancy, it may be the result of an underlying health condition in the mother.
Late mc may be caused by an infection around the baby, which leads to the bag of waters breaking before any pain or bleeding. In rare cases, they can be caused by the neck of the womb opening too soon.
Each case should be investigated before going on with trying.
