If you are trying for a baby, it can be most of the times difficult to know what advice you should be listening. In this blog, we will elaborate you the facts that should aid to help you in conception. During the treatment, we have been also telling a lot number of patients what they wish they had known before they starting trying for a baby, and this is what they said:
1. Understanding the body is the utmost need
If you’re on the pill for a long time, your body experiences a very predictable cycle. Come off it, and things may be turn out be unexpected. “It was such a blow to be told, at the age of 39 and having been on the pill for over a decade, that my hormones were all out of whack and coupled with other issues I was potentially infertile. I felt like I was not as close to understanding my body as I thought – I spent months monitoring my cycle and really getting back in tune with it all,” one patient has narrated. She has since fallen pregnant naturally, after taking medication to get things back on track.
2. Age matters, so don’t miss it
The most common things we hear from patients is that they wish they had not left it so late. Spending twenties trying to avoid falling pregnant sometimes becomes overwhelming. They lose sight of the fact that fertility rates decline in your 30’s and can be quite low in your 40’s. Although you cannot change your age, one thing you can do is take action. If you are concerned that time is running short and you are thinking about seeing your GP or a Fertility Specialist, arrange it sooner rather than later.
3. Male Partner’s age matters too
You cannot blame women for not being able to get pregnant, perhaps male partner’s reproductive health can’t be ruled out. Many couples fail to realize that the age of the man can also have an impact on your chance of conceiving as a couple.
4. It can happen in second time around
You have successful a childbirth and now trying to conceive for second one. Secondary infertility is more common than you may think. “I was lulled into a false sense of security that ‘it’s only a matter of time, because our first child was conceived and carried to term so easily,” one woman confessed. “I wish we hadn’t wasted a few good years postponing treatment for the second time around”. Although previous fertility can be reassuring, things can change after a previous successful pregnancy.
5. Sometimes, conception is not easy, as you think
For some couples, the decision to start a family is quick – but the outcome is anything but. “We never even considered we might have difficulties, we just thought OK it’s time,” one woman said. “Five years later, our doctor had diagnosed ‘unexplained infertility’ and still we had no baby”. Although this woman was in her twenties when they started, she says she wishes they’d sought medical help sooner. Fortunately, assisted conception did eventually prove to be the answer for this couple.
6. Every individual requires unique approach of treatment
Every single patient has a unique set of circumstances, and their path to parenthood will take many different forms. It helps to talk about it with others – you may find it comforting to know you’re not alone, or you may get some insights that help you through to conception.
“I appreciated knowing conception is not as easy as it sounds – or as my school sex ed teachers made it out to be,” one woman told me. “And that no matter how our children come to us, we are still parents.”
