A member asked:

Will weaning make me more fertile?

3 doctor answers7 doctors weighed in
Dr. Kathleen Forcier
Specializes in General Practice
No: Breast feeding delays the return of ovulation and can help prevent new moms from getting pregnant. If you have a newborn and your period hasn't returned, weaning will likely make you more fertile. But if your baby's a year old and you've been having periods for the last few months, weaning won't matter. (if you really want to prevent pregnancy breast feeding alone is not sufficient birth control.).

Does radiation affect fertility?

2 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in
Dr. Michael Traub

Yes: The effects of radiation on infertility depend on the dose, the location, and the number of treatments. It affects both male and female infertility. Anyone about to undergo radiation therapy should have a consultation with a fertility specialist prior to treatment. Low levels of radiation in tests like a ct scan is not harmful unless multiple tests are performed, which is very unusual.
Dr. David Dinhofer

I prefer to say Yes and No as any adverse affects are dependent on the dose. Low doses usually used in medical exams should not affect fertility.

Can my age be a fertility factor?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Neeoo Chin
Fertility Medicine 40 years experience
Yes: Yes, age can be a major contributing factor to fertility. No two people are alike. Therefore we can only quote statistics such as pregnancy rates for women over the age of 40 y/o is 10% per cycle and miscarriage rates are 30-50%. However there are medications and treatments short of donor egg ivf to help improve your chances. All hope is not lost!
