When Should You See a Fertility Specialist?

Updated: Jan 22

Infertility is a medical condition that is time-sensitive. Don’t put your fertility journey on hold until the “right time” comes, because when infertility is involved, the right time to act is now.

How Long Have You Been Trying?

Have you been trying to get pregnant for more than a year without any positive results? Then chances are that you need medical assistance to conceive successfully. This window is shorter for couples above 35, who should seek expert advice after trying for 6 months.

What Are The Factors To Be Considered When Planning A Family?

Age: Are you aged above or below 35?

Medical History: Do you have a family history of chronic diseases or premature menopause?

Reproductive Issues: Do you suffer from PCOS, fallopian tube/uterine problems, endometriosis, thyroid disorders (for women), erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, sperm disorders (for men)?

Injury/Surgeries: Have you endured an injury or a surgery on your reproductive organs?

Cancer: Have you been diagnosed with cancer/undergone cancer treatment?

Lifestyle: Do you smoke or drink? Are you overweight/underweight?

Why Should You Not Delay Treatment?

The ovarian reserve declines with each menstrual cycle

Advanced age is linked to increased risk of miscarriage

Fertility screening tests stretch over days/lead to additional tests

You may have to make lifestyle changes before starting treatment

The treatment may require multiple attempts or might get delayed

What’S The Next Right Step?

AlphaLife Fertility has a Couple Screening Package to fast-track your fertility journey. Its components include:

Is Infertility Curable?

Infertility is not curable, but certain cases can be reversed. Here at AlphaLife Fertility, we offer 4 major treatment options:

Ovulation induction (OI):Regulation/restoration of ovulation using medications

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI): A minimally invasive procedure that directly places the washed sperm in the uterus of the female partner to boost chances of fertilisation.

Self-cycle IVF: A procedure that retrieves the wife’’s mature eggs and the husband’s healthy sperm and combines them in a lab for fertilization

Self-cycle ICSI:A procedure that injects a single, healthy sperm into an egg using a fine glass needle to eliminate limitations of poor sperm/egg quality.
