Struggling with Infertility? When to See a Fertility Specialist

Aspire Houston Fertility Institute is Here to Help

If you are having trouble getting pregnant, you may be wondering if it’s time to see a fertility specialist. While everyone is unique, infertility is broadly defined as difficulty getting pregnant after trying for 6 to 12 months. Many aspiring parents struggling for that long will have a diagnosable condition that is making it difficult to become pregnant without treatment. We encourage anyone facing fertility issues or who is looking for support on their fertility journey to schedule a consultation with a fertility specialist at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute.

When to Consult a Fertility Specialist After Miscarriages

Miscarriages are common, with most occurring before a person realizes they have conceived. In many cases, a person who knows they are pregnant will have a miscarriage before carrying the next pregnancy to term. However, some people have multiple miscarriages due to an abnormality.

If you have suffered two or more miscarriages, consider seeing a fertility specialist who can help diagnose the cause and provide treatment options.

Other Reasons Why It May Be Time to See a Fertility Specialist

The fertility specialists at Aspire HFI also care for patients seeking fertility preservation. Also known as freezing eggs or sperm, most people choose fertility preservation because they want to delay pregnancy for lifestyle reasons or may need to undergo treatments for cancer or another serious medical condition.

Other situations in which you may seek help to conceive include single people desiring to have a child on their own and same-sex couples wanting to build a family. All of these situations present unique medical and personal decisions, which our providers would be happy to discuss and support you in making.
