Trying to Conceive
An_242479 posted:
Hello im 37 years old and have two children already, 10 and 14. I am in a new serious relationship and have been trying to conceive for the last 4 months now with no luck. We both are in the medical field and fully understand the correct timing as far as getting pregnant. My periods are regular. When is an appropriate time to seek medical help? Is it after 6 months or 1 year? Thanks!

David K Walmer, MD, PhD responded:
Because we know that there is a natural age-related decline in fertility, it is reasonable to make an appointment for a preconception evaluation after 6 months at the age of 37. Good luck!
