Couples who are unable to conceive beyond one year of marriage must get evaluated for medical conditions that may be affecting their chances of getting pregnant.
A specialist can evaluate a couple to check for underlying problems through a detailed clinical check-up, scans and laboratory tests.
Some patients often find it easy to conceive but may lose the pregnancy due to underlying medical issues. A fertility specialist attempts to identify the underlying medical problem in such cases through a detailed clinical history, ultrasound scans and laboratory tests.
Once a diagnosis is made, a fertility specialist can plan the mode of treatment that would be best suited for a given couple.
This could involve medical treatment of underlying disorders, surgical treatment in conditions such as fibroids or adhesions and specialized fertility treatment such as ovulation induction- timed intercourse (OI-TI), intrauterine insemination(IUI) or assisted reproductive techniques (commonly known as IVF treatment).
