Medical Investigations of Couple Seeking Fertility-Update-24.2.19-What is sub-fertility & when to investigate
As promised, we will continue our discussion on evaluation of couple seeking fertility.
-Today we will seek deeper understanding of what is infertility and population dynamics.
-It is said that most couples are said to be subfertile as they will ultimately conceive if given enough time.
-The decision to start investigations in the couple depend on many factors like age of woman, for how long they have been married, ovulation status and so on.
– Generally, investigations are started if couple has failed to conceive in one year.
–Fecundability, which by definition is ability of woman to conceive, is highly age related and declines with advancing age.
-Women in age group 35-40 years will require more frequent evaluation than younger woman.
– So, friends, in next update of this series will discuss in detail about some other aspect of this topic.
