Trying to Conceive: When Should You Consult a Doctor?
If you’re trying to have a baby and struggling to conceive, how long should you wait before going to the doctor? Doctors suggest trying to have regular unprotected intercourse for a full year before seeking professional help. However, for a woman older than 35 years this cut-off is shortened to 6 months as there is a steep decline in fertility after 35 years. However, if you’re are over 30 and have painful periods, a history of miscarriages, irregular cycles don’t wait a full year but seek help after 6 months.
