Difficulty in Falling Pregnant

Fertility is the ability to conceive and produce offspring. Infertility is the inability to conceive after a year of unprotected intercourse. Infertility can affect men and women of all ages. Infertility can be very stressful and frustrating and can place great strain on a couple’s relationship. Many couples experiencing infertility problems can often be successfully treated with medical or surgical techniques or by addressing lifestyle issues.

Why am I not falling Pregnant?

There are a number of factors to consider when trying to understand why you are not getting pregnant when trying to naturally conceive. It is also important to understand, that only after a year of unprotected intercourse with no resulting pregnancy should you consider seeking further medical advice.

Factors that could be affecting your ability to conceive include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Ageing
  • Hormonal Imbalance
  • Consumption of excessive alcohol
  • Smoking
  • Certain medications
  • Underlying disease conditions that may affect the sexual function of an individual
  • Infertility
If you and your partner are considering fertility treatment, then I believe you deserve a holistic approach. This means I look at you as a whole person, the whole couple that you are. That is how we create your fertility treatment journey together. Not as a sequence of procedures and fertility tests, but rather as a personalised experience tailored to your individual needs.
