How To Tell If A Guy Is Fertile
Complicated question: A women under the age of 35 who has regular periods is generally considered fertile. After a year of unprotected intercourse with no pregnancy an infertility evaluation would be appropriate. Women over 35 and women with irregular menses can be evaluated sooner. Infertility should always be considered a couples problem and complete male evaluation is also indicated. No one test proves fertility. ...Read more
Fertility testing: Infertility is not getting pregnant after a year of trying; highly fertile individuals or couples are getting pregnant in a few months. Female fertility (and to a lesser extent male fertility) declines with age at different speeds in different women. A rei specialist can check your 'egg supply' for a woman who isn't sure when to start ttc - fsh, estradiol, amh blood tests and an ovarian ultrasound. ...Read more
14 days premenstrual: If you are having predictable menses then you should ovulate 14 days before your next cycle starts. If day 1 is the day that you start your period then most people ovulate around day 14 (based on a 28 day cycle.) if your cycles are longer (maybe 35 days apart) then you will ovulate later (35-14=day 21.) if your cycles are shorter (maybe 25 days apart) then you will ovulate earlier (25-14=day 11.). ...Read more
History and testing: The best sign is history. Has he had documented proof of having fathered children in the past. Technically this is not 100% proof, unless there is dna testing, due to the confounding factor of disputed paternity. The second best sign is a semen analysis, although that only tells you how he is "on paper" and does not guarantee that his sperm is functional. Most men with good sa's are fertile. ...Read more
Use the equipment: A thorough evaluation including a history, physical and tests as needed can suggest the health of your system. However, yours in not the only system involved, so the partner contribution must also be healthy. Most providers suggest an average of 6 months trying before a pregnancy is achieved and would wait a year before a fertility evaluation. ...Read more
Fertile time: The optimal time for conception is 48 hours prior to and up to the day of ovulation. Therefore, start having intercourse a couple of days prior to when you actually ovulate and have intercourse every other day for a total of five times to help ensure sperm are there when you ovulate. ...Read more
Yes: With modern fertility treatments, most couples can succeed. The limiting factor may be that a treatment choice is not acceptable ethically or financially for a couple - a woman 45 + is generally better off with egg donation, embryo donation or adoption than trying with her eggs. Men with ultra severe sperm issues may not want donor sperm. Adoption - traditional or donor embryo - is a good choice. ...Read more
Danger: You know we doctors get asked this question all the time. The truth is that one can get pregnant even if one is bleeding… if you ask how? Well it's because not all bleeding has the same cause. Some women can have breakthrough bleeding in the middle of the month and it is exactly when they are fertile. Another factor is that sperm can live up to four days in a woman. You truly are never safe. ...Read more
Can you tell me what can I take to increase fertility please? I have already done tests and ultrasounds been trying for 3yrs and everything is fine.
Fertility testing: Fertility testing is much more than ultrasounds and self described "tests". It includes a sperm analysis of the male partner in which 40% of all infertility problems reside. It also includes an assessment of ovulation status and Fallopian tube patency. If your "tests" did not include the above, see a Fertility GYN MD for further evaluation. ...Read more
