At our fertility centre in Pune, I often get patients who’ve been trying to conceive unsuccessfully for many years before they finally seek fertility treatments. May be they believe that their infertility problems will get solved with time. But this isn’t true. If you have been trying to conceive for a long time, it is advisable to visit a doctor without much delay.

Ideally, one must seek medical help after 1 year of trying to conceive without success. However, if you’re 35 years of age and above and have been trying to conceive for 6 months without success, you should not wait any longer to opt for fertility treatments. So why does time and age play such a crucial role in fertility treatments? There’s a simple explanation for this. Every baby girl is born with a fixed number of oocytes (egg cell) in her ovaries – around 1 to 2 million. However, none of the oocytes (egg cells) develop after birth.

Around puberty, at the start of the menstruation cycle, only about 300,000- more than enough for a lifetime of fertility remain. Of these, only a small percentage (roughly 300-400) mature into eggs. That means, a woman has only a fixed number of eggs which doesn’t increase but which decrease with every menstrual cycle. That’s why women in their 20’s and early 30’s have most chances of conceiving a child naturally. Once women reach the age of 50, menopause sets in. This is when the ovaries stop releasing mature eggs. Menopause is considered complete once the woman doesn’t experience menstrual cycles for a year.Silverberries known for infertility treatment have best IVF specialist in Pune.

After this stage, she cannot conceive. Chances of conception are also slimmer at middle age. However, with advanced technology and modern fertility treatments, conception is possible in most cases. And more so when you treat your infertility problems in your 30’s. This is why the earlier you opt for fertility treatments, the better your chances of conception.
