Why Second Opinion is important for patients? - Dr Rita Bakshi

Things you should know if you have a fertility problem?

If months are drifting by without any indication of having a positive conception then you may start to think what could be the problem. Do not get anxious as the time taken to conceive varies. Even if you are healthy, there are only 20-25% chances of a conceiving every month.


This means your age does play a vital. If the couple is in their 20’s, they can expect a successful conception within 5 months. If the couple is above 35 years of age, you should keep trying and seek advice from a gynecologist for guidance.


Having a successful conception is entirely a matter of luck. The best time to have higher chances of conception is during the ovulation phase.


However, if you feel you’ve followed all the advices and tried for a prolonged period of time, you should visit a fertility specialist immediately. Nowadays, infertility is becoming a commonplace affecting 15-20% of couples around the world and if you are one of these couples then don’t think that you cannot have a baby. You just need a couple of time and guidance.

What are the possible reasons of Infertility in female partner?


Once you have made your mind to have a baby, having difficulty in conceiving is the hard truth.


It is a common tendency to think that there is something wrong with either of the partners. Remember that you are not alone. I have seen many couples visiting my clinic who are going through the same trouble. I believe that it’s just not about single partner, fertility affects male and female partner equally.


Below are a few symptoms that may lead to male infertility:


Have STDs (sexually transmitted disease) like Chlamydia or gonorrhea

  • Had pelvic or abdominal surgery for appendicitis or ovarian cysts
  • Male partner diagnosed with hernia or testicular operation
  • Female has irregular menstruation
  • Diagnosed with conditions like PID (pelvic inflammatory disease), endometriosis or fibroids
  • History of ectopic pregnancy


Even with these conditions, you can be fortunate enough to be one of the 84% couples who conceive in a year. Also, if you don’t, you still have a good chance to conceive in the coming year without medical assistance.


Besides the above mentioned symptoms, your diet and lifestyle also influences your fertility potential.


What are the reasons of Infertility in male partner?


There can be various reasons behind the male partner being infertile, which are as follows:

  • Sexually transmitted disease.
  • Lifelong illness like diabetes, thyroid or heart disease.
  • Infection with mumps after puberty
  • Testicular tumor, cysts or cancer
  • Surgery in his groin or injury to his testicles.
  • Erection problems
  • Ejaculation issues
  • Undescended testicles


If your male partner experiences any of the following signs, visit a fertility specialist as soon as possible.


In addition, if your partner is diagnosed with Klinefelter’s syndrome, he should consult a fertility expert before trying to conceive as it is a rare genetic condition that affects fertility.


Both male and female infertility may get affected by lifestyle factors as follows:

  • Excessive exposure to heated environments resulting in overheating of the male’s testes
  • Body Mass Index less than 19 or more than 29
  • Habitual to excessive smoking and alcohol
  • Drug addiction


Who is the best person to seek guidance if you think you have poor fertility?


The best person to consult is a fertility specialist. You and your partner should freely discuss all your fears and concerns and since how long you have been trying to have a baby.  The concerned fertility specialist will arrange a fertility diagnosis test along with a few initial tests. On the basis of these tests, a list of options will be presented to you to choose the right treatment for you to begin your parenthood journey.
