Having fertility treatment is a big decision so it is important to take your time to think about it. Your doctor will also recommend that you explore other options first before beginning private IVF treatment in London.
It can often take a while to fall pregnant, even when both partners are young and fertile. You shouldn’t start to worry about your fertility until you have been trying to get pregnant for a while. This means that you should have been having regular, unprotected sex for at least a year. If you haven’t conceived after this time, it could be a good idea to consult a gynaecologist at the London clinic, although it is still too soon to consider having private IVF treatment. You might want to do this sooner if you are over 35 as fertility treatment can take longer for older couples, if you need it.
When you see the gynaecologist, you will be able to get advice on what you can do to increase your chances of conceiving. This might include some changes to your diet and lifestyle or keeping better track of your cycle so that you know when you are ovulating. The doctor can also check for any health conditions that could be making it more difficult for you to get pregnant. For example, conditions such as fibroids and polycystic ovary syndrome can sometimes affect your fertility. Getting treatment for these conditions can increase the chances of conceiving naturally.
Thinking About Fertility Treatment
If you are still having trouble conceiving, the doctor may recommend that you try fertility treatment. This doesn’t mean that you will begin private IVF treatment at the London clinic right away. The doctor may suggest other options first, such as medication to encourage ovulation in women or boost testosterone levels in men. However, if none of the other options are suitable for you or they’ve been unsuccessful, it may be time to consider private IVF treatment. You will need to consider this choice carefully as it can be a very emotional and difficult process, but your doctor will be there to provide support if you decide IVF is right for you.
