    If you've experienced the following events, it is recommended that you schedule an appointment with a fertility specialist:
    • If you are under age 35 and have been unable to conceive after a year of trying to get pregnant.
    • If you are over age 35 and have been unable to conceive after six months of trying to get pregnant.
    • When you've lost two or more pregnancies to miscarriage.
    • When other infertility treatments have not been successful.
    If you do not have regular menstrual cycles, or if you have had prior gynecological problems including endometriosis, pelvic surgery, tubal pregnancy or infections, you should seek assistance sooner.
