When should I visit my doctor?

Before the onset of investigation and treatment of infertility we should answer an important question: has the frequency of sexual intercourse been adequate, despite which no pregnancy has occurred?

If the answer is yes and no conception has been achieved in a period of one year, then it is necessary to investigate the causes of subfertility in order to select the suitable treatment.

The philosophy of dealing with subfertility may include:

  • a "wait and see" period
  • undergoing tests to explore the causes of subfertility in order to select the suitable treatment
  • time course of treatment (intrauterine insemination, hysteroscopy-laparoscopy etc)
  • direct application of IVF
