When should you visit a fertility clinic?
- If the wife and husband have been having regular, unprotected intercourse for a year or six months and have still failed to conceive.
- If the wife is over the age of 35 and still not pregnant, she does not need to wait 6 months before seeing a doctor. Waiting too long to seek help can reduce her chances of conceiving.
- If the wife has a medical history e.g. irregular or painful periods, pelvic pain, endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), repeated miscarriage and others.
- If the husband has a low sperm count or a history of testicular prostate, or sexual problems.
