What is Infertility?
“Infertility is a disease, defined by the failure to achieve a successful pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected intercourse. Earlier evaluation and treatment may be justified based on medical history and physical findings and is warranted after 6 months for women over age 35 years.”
For couples with a female partner age 40 or older, it is appropriate to see a fertility specialist if not pregnant by 3-4 months of trying to conceive. A high percentage of women over 40 will have age-related issues (egg quality) and will need medical help to get pregnant. If the female partner is 42 or older, it is recommended to see a specialist right away if wanting to have a baby.
You do not need to have sex all the time in order to get pregnant. If you like it that way, then no problem – it doesn’t reduce a couple’s fertility potential either. The best fertility advice in terms of frequency of intercourse is – every day or every other day “around ovulation”.
Ovulation is usually on day 14 – if the menstrual cycle length (from day 1 to day 1) is 28 days, or on day 16 if periods are 30 days apart. In other words, ovulation usually occurs 14 days before the next period comes.
The egg only lives about 12-24 hours, while the sperm (if normal) will live in the female’s reproductive tract for up to 2-5 days – while maintaining the ability to fertilize an egg.
Therefore, the best fertility advice would be to have sex on the day of ovulation, or the day before ovulation (or both). Having sex more than about 24 hours after ovulation should be fun and all that, but it isn’t likely to increase the planetary population.
Causes of problems getting pregnant
The cause of infertility is investigated by performing fertility tests in a basic infertility evaluation. The tests can be completed during one menstrual cycle (one month).
