Did you know that infertility affects 1 in 6 couples trying to have children? Despite the fact that infertility is so common, it is not something that is often discussed. Cy-Fair Hospital wants to help you learn more about infertility and how you can cope.
More often than not, many couples suffer in silence as they deal with infertility. “The good news is that with an early start and some persistence many patients will be able to get pregnant and start a family of their own,” says Stephan Krotz, MD, reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialist on the medical staff at Cy-Fair Hospital.
“You should consider seeing a specialist if you are younger than 35 years of age and are not pregnant after 12 months of trying, or if you are older than 35 years old and are not pregnant after 6 months of trying,” explains Dr. Krotz. “If you have any long-term, chronic health conditions, or any of the causes of infertility mentioned above, you may consider seeing your specialist earlier.”
