If you are trying to conceive and have not gotten pregnant, it may be time to visit a fertility specialist for diagnosis and treatment. Below, we will take a look at when it can be helpful to visit a fertility clinic, as well as how and where you can find the best fertility specialist in Oak Brook, IL.
When to Visit a Fertility Doctor
Many couples try to conceive for several months before getting pregnant, even if they are young and healthy. About 85% of couples get pregnant within a year of trying. Therefore, it is recommended that couples try to conceive for 12 months before visiting a fertility specialist.
When the woman is over the age of 36, the chances of having infertility are higher, and the woman has fewer remaining fertile years. Women over the age of 36 should visit a doctor after 6 months of trying to conceive. You may also see a physician after 6 months if you have a history of reproductive problems, like miscarriage or endometriosis, or problems that affect the reproductive system, like hypothyroidism.
Choosing a Fertility Clinic
There are many factors to consider when you visit a fertility doctor. As you research doctors in your area, look for the answers to these key questions:
- Is the doctor a board-certified reproductive endocrinologist?
- How long has the doctor worked in the field?
- What are the clinic’s IVF success rates for patients who are similar to you?
- Does the clinic use treatment protocols that improve the chances of pregnancy?
- Does the doctor have positive reviews from past clients?
- Do you feel comfortable with the communication you get from the doctor?
