Approximately 1 in 6 families will have trouble conceiving and that number increases to more than 50% after a woman (intended egg provider) reaches the age of 39. If it is taking you longer than you expected to get pregnant, the first step is to talk to your doctor about getting a referral to a fertility specialist who will do a fertility evaluation. Often simple treatment or counselling can help solve the problem. In some cases, the solution requires more advanced technology such as in vitro fertilization (IVF). The good news is that advances in fertility treatment have made it possible for most people to achieve their dream of having a family.
