If you are trying to conceive and there is some question as to your fertility you should consult a fertility specialist as soon as possible. For patients with a partner who is 35 or over, this should be done as early as after 6 months of infertility. Patients without a partner, who wish to freeze their eggs, should do so as early as possible, particularly if the patient is over 33 years of age. Non-traditional families requiring egg or sperm donation should also seek a fertility specialist as soon as they are ready to conceive. And it’s never too early for couples who wish to become pregnant to do a baseline work-up either through your obgyn or fertility specialist.
