When Should You Visit the IVF Center?

The period that fertility peaks in women (reproductive potential) is defined as the early 20s and mid-20s. Fertility begins to decrease in late 20s and early 30s. This decrement in fertility is more pronounced after the age of 35 years.

In men as well, a decrease in fertility is observed with age. But this is not as fast as in women and usually the age is not a problem before the age of 60 years.

There are many problems that cause infertility. Sometimes, more than one factor at the same time can cause infertility. Although some of the causes of infertility are easy to diagnose and treat, this can be more difficult for some causes. However, it can be seen that some couples cannot have children although there is no problem neither in man nor in woman. It is recommended to start examinations if pregnancy has not occurred despite regular intercourse without using any contraceptive method in a year. However, it is important to start examinations immediately in women having following features and symptoms regardless of duration:

  • The age of 35 years and over,
  • Irregular or no menstruation,
  • Intermenstrual bleeding,
  • Pain during intercourse,
  • Past infections of the upper genital tract,
  • History of appendectomy or other abdominal (abdominal) surgeries in the past.
