Infertility

Many couples have concerns about their ability to conceive a pregnancy and it can be difficult to know when sufficient time has passed to justifying seeking medical attention. Doctors often recommend couples wait until 2 years have passed before starting investigation because 95% of them will have conceived by then (90% will have conceived after trying for one year).

Couples with risk factors for infertility should seek medical help sooner than 2 years. Women with infrequent periods should see their GP sooner rather than later so that simple tests can be arranged. Women with a history of Chlamydia or use of a contraceptive coil should see their GP after about a year of trying.

The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority produce an essential guide to infertility and its management.
