Common Causes of Infertility in Women

Seeing a Specialist

If you've been actively trying to conceive for at least 12 months, or 6 months if you're over the age of 35, it might be time to talk to your healthcare provider. Although the thought of an infertility diagnosis may seem scary, it's often better than the frustration of seeing one more month go by without becoming pregnant. It's important to keep in mind that infertility is a medical condition and, like many other medical conditions, is often treatable. Most couples who have an evaluation and treatment for infertility will become pregnant. In some cases, the treatment is as easy as initiating lifestyle changes or taking medicines to trigger ovulation. Other cases are a little more complex.
