When should we seek advice about our infertility?


Your general practitioner will be able to advise you and may be able to initiate infertility investigation. The results may influence how you proceed. Infertility investigations are usually commenced if pregnancy has not occurred within a year. It would be appropriate to commence infertility investigations and treatment earlier if you have an abnormal menstrual cycle, a history suggesting possible tubal disease, coital difficulties or if you have had infertility problems before. A semen test would indicate if there is a male factor to the infertility.Rubella (German Measles), which can damage the fetus in pregnancy, is avoidable by ensuring adequate immunity and infertility investigation provides us with an opportunity to ensure that you are immune. If a blood test shows that you have inadequate immunity, your general practitioner will arrange for you to be immunised.
