1. Q. When do couples need to see a doctor/infertility specialist for infertility treatment?

A.  When a couple have lived together for one year (without the use of any family planning methods) & have not achieved a pregnancy they need to consult a doctor for advise & investigations.


If the wife or husband is known to have a health problem or the wife's age is more than30years then they need to see a doctor after 6 months of married life.

2. Q. Should my husband be present at consultation or shall I come with a close friend or relative?

The presence of a relative or a friend actually takes away the privacy & proper information cannot be gathered by the doctor.

3. Q. What do we need to bring to the clinic at the first consultation?
