For some couples, trying to get pregnant can be challenge. That challenge is even bigger if you’re over 35. If you’re having trouble conceiving, experts including Mayo Clinic’s Elizabeth Stewart, MD, recommend not waiting a year to see a fertility specialist. Instead, go after six months because the earlier you go, the earlier potential issues can be spotted. Plus, the six-month appointment can actually be encouraging! You’ll know your odds sooner and what you need to do to improve your chances of getting pregnant.
