The Right Time for Infertility Treatment

Fertility and Pregnancy

If you are over 35 and unable to get pregnant after three months of trying, it’s recommended to have infertility treatment as soon as possible. The sooner you start on infertility treatments, the better results you’ll get. This article will explain when and how you should start on infertility treatment.

Know the Timing of Ovulation

Depending on your age and medical history, you may want to start treatment at the hospital as soon as possible. However, consider first whether or not you need treatment. It is also important to know the timing of your ovulation.

When you have a baby, you can’t have sex randomly without knowing the day of ovulation.

Be familiar with your menstrual cycle and have sex on the day of ovulation. Having sex before the day of ovulation is also necessary for couples on infertility treatment. It’s a good idea to communicate especially when you need to say “I want to have sex because it’s ovulation today”, or you can try the ‘natural’ way.

To know the day of ovulation, you need to measure your basal body temperature. You can buy ovulation day tests without a prescription. It is recommended to use it while measuring your basal body temperature. If you don’t get pregnant after trying for 3-6 menstrual cycles, you should visit an infertility clinic.

As you get older, it gets harder to be pregnant

If you are under 35 years old, you can try waiting for 6 cycles of menstruation. However, if you are over 35 and don’t get pregnant after trying for 3 cycles, it’s better to see your doctor.

The general definition of infertility is “being unable to get pregnant after one year”. However, the older we get, the less time we have. Trying to conceive for a year can be too long.

So regardless of age, treatment should be started as soon as the cause of infertility is determined after examination. If you just keep on having sex and waiting to get pregnant (without results), it will only extend your infertility period. So if you are worried, take the necessary tests as soon as possible. Start treatment once the cause has been figured out by your doctor. Although having sex at the right time is important for pregnancy, a couples’ communication plays a big part in successful impregnation.

How to Know The Timing of Ovulation

When you know the day of ovulation, there’s more high chance to get pregnant. Check below how to know the day of ovulation.

Check your basal body temperature

In order to confirm the day of ovulation, it is essential to check your basal body temperature. Although basal body temperature is the only way to know the correct timing, it is possible to understand the menstrual cycle before infertility treatment begins.

Use an ovulation checker

You may also use an ovulation day prediction test. This kit can now be purchased over the counter at drugstores. Try this for convenience.

It’s important to have sex not only on the day of ovulation

If you have sex only on the day of ovulation, the chance of pregnancy decreases. This is because the number of sperm and the activity rate should also be taken into consideration. More importantly, you need take time to get ‘in the mood’ for intercourse. Just because you are serious about having a baby does not mean that you should not relax and enjoy the moment.

Conclusion

When should you consider having infertility treatment after some time of trying for a baby?

○ If you are under 35 years old, and 6 cycles of menstruation has passed without results (about half a year)
○ If you are over 35 years old, and 3 cycles of menstruation has passed without results (about 3 months)
