About 20% of the population suffers from fertility problems – nearly 10% are men, and the remainder women. So if you’re having problems getting pregnant, you’re not alone.
You are considered to have fertility problems when you’ve been trying for a baby for at least a year without success. By this point it’s a good idea to seek advice from a specialist in infertility issues such as Regency International Clinic. We can then work with you to identify which path of treatment will give you the best chance of conceiving. Age is the single most important factor affecting your fertility and the sooner you can start the talk with your partner about conceiving the more likely for your pregnancy to be successful.
Women can have difficulty conceiving for a variety of reasons, including:
- Ovulation problems due to polycystic or abnormal ovaries
- Blocked fallopian tubes which prevent sperm and eggs from meeting and fertilizing
- Abnormality in the uterus or uterus lining
- Hormone imbalance
- Cervical hostility where the sperm cannot survive in the cervical mucus
- Problems with partner’s fertility
