Does this sound like you? You’ve been trying to fall pregnant the old fashioned way for six months to a year, but have had no luck. Your social circle are starting to announce their pregnancies around you and they are all declaring it was simple, or all they did was take a simple tablet and voila, they were pregnant. It’s got you thinking; could the answer be as simple as popping a pill?
Whilst there are oral fertility medications available that may be able to help encourage and regulate your ovulation, we would recommend speaking with an expert first to make sure that this treatment would be right for you.
If you don’t ovulate or don’t ovulate regularly, talk to your GP and arrange a referral to a Fertility Specialist. Your Fertility Specialist can determine whether treatment with oral fertility medications is appropriate. Once you know when you are ovulating, you can plan to have sex around that time for a greater chance of success. For some patients, this is all that is needed to fall pregnant. In fact over 50 per cent of the patients who see a Genea Fertility Specialist will not need IVF.
If you do ovulate, and your cycle is usually predictable and regular then it’s likely the problem can’t be fixed with oral fertility medications. But don’t worry! If you’ve been trying for six months to a year, talk to your GP or our Fertility GP and arrange a referral to a Fertility Specialist who can thoroughly assess your fertility, run some tests to determine the best approach and help you to decide whether this is the right approach for you.
Information is power. Even if a more involved treatment is recommended – the best first step is to gather all of the information and ask questions. You get to choose what happens next.
If you've had no luck conceiving you may want to check out our Fertility Tools page which has a number of tools and information packs designed to help you achieve your dreams of successful conception.
