About Your Fertility

Approximately 1 in 6 couples in Ireland encounter challenges related to achieving a pregnancy. The term subfertility refers to challenges which can be related to one partner or both partners. If your attempts to conceive have extended beyond six months, it is advisable to consult with a medical professional for guidance.

Begin by gaining insight into the functioning of your reproductive system, identifying potential factors influencing your fertility and discovering strategies to enhance your likelihood of conception.

The timing of sexual intercourse is crucial for successful conception. Engaging in intercourse 24-48 hours before ovulation offers the highest likelihood of pregnancy, as this period corresponds to peak fertility in women. Our online ovulation calculator, tailored to the length of your menstrual cycle, can pinpoint the optimal time for conception. Why not give it a try?

There are several methods that you as a couple can adopt which may optimise your lifestyle and health in order to get ready for pregnancy.

Among them are:

  1. Understand and track your menstrual cycle.
  2. It is recommended that females take folic acid for at least three months before attempting to conceive.
  3. Take care of known illnesses like diabetes. 
  4. Achieve an optimal weight through a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen.
  5. Quit smoking, as it diminishes fertility by about 40%.
  6. Decrease alcohol and caffeine consumption.
  7. Consult with a healthcare provider for antenatal blood tests.
  8. Review current medications and discuss their implications for pregnancy with a healthcare professional.

We will support you on a highly customised and appropriate path to parenthood based on your unique situation. Ovulation induction and timed conception are two examples of non-invasive or minimally invasive methods that some couples use as a first line of treatment to boost fertility. Treatment with IUI, IVF or ICSI may be suggested for others.

We advise you speak with a fertility specialists if you are over 35 and haven’t gotten pregnant after six months of trying, or if you are under 35 and have been trying for 12 months or more, this is very crucial.

Your Fertility Specialist will perform a thorough evaluation of your fertility during this appointment, enabling you to better understand your chances of becoming pregnant as well as all of your alternatives.

This will involve first blood tests for her to determine when she will ovulate and how many eggs are accessible, and a semen analysis for him to determine the quantity and quality of sperm.
