In recent years, much attention has been given to women's health. Your fertility issues should be directed to your OB/GYN. It is your gynecologist job to access the situation and perform necessary tests to find out the root cause of your infertility— and to procure a solution (if there is).

Below are reasons why you should discuss your fertility issues with a gynecologist.

  • Your gynecologist will educate you on factors that can aid conception. Like dietary choices, lifestyle, supplements. Your doctor will explain to you the symptoms of ovulation and how to spot them (sore/tender breasts, vagina discharge).
  • Most of us believe that having unprotected sex is all it takes to conceive. Yes, but that is just some aspect of it. It takes more than that, timing also play a huge role. Your gynecologist will access your menstrual cycle and tell you the best days(fertile window) for you to have unprotected sex.  It is important you know the right time to start trying each month because the egg released only stays for 12-24 hours.
  • If there is an underlying condition that might be the cause of infertility, it is important to keep your gynecologist abreast. For someone suffering from PCOS, the fertility treatment or medical advice that would be given will be quite difficult from another woman who is just trying to conceive. PCOS  sometimes prevents ovulation. Self medicating when it comes to infertility can create more problems. It is advisable to seek a gynecologist.
  • If you are following the doctor's instructions and still finding it difficult to conceive. You will have to seek a gynecologist to rule out serious health conditions that might prevent you from getting pregnant. You can contact our gynecologist directly from the website or app.
