Wondering when to see an infertility doctor? Here’s a guide

While pregnancy can seem to happen on the first attempt for some people, it’s less predictable for others. For those still finding their path to parenthood, figuring out when to seek a medical opinion can be confusing.

The experts at Reproductive Medicine Associates of New Jersey (RMANJ) say there are indicators it may be time to make an appointment with a reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialist:

  • If you’re younger than 35 years old and have been trying for one year
  • If you’re 35 or older and have been trying for six months
  • If you have irregular, painful periods or a loss of periods altogether
  • If you have endometriosis or PCOS
  • If you have an autoimmune disorder
  • If you are worried about passing a genetic disorder to your child
  • If you are prone to early pregnancy loss or miscarriage
  • If you are a strict observer of a faith that could interfere with sex during ovulation
  • If you are single
  • If you are in a gay relationship
  • If you are considering fertility preservation, either for elective purposes or due to a medical condition like cancer


RMANJ has been at the forefront of patient-focused fertility treatment for nearly two decades. For more information, call 973-656-2089 or visit rmanj.com.
