What can I do help with fertility? We’ve been trying for a child for awhile now with no luck. We have no idea who could be at fault.
The thing to remember is that it can be complex. There are so many variables at play. It can be due to an equal likelihood of either side, a combination of factors from both, or unexplained. The best first step is to visit with a reproductive or fertility specialist to discuss the workup. They will help you understand what your obstacles could be and offer solutions. The solutions will be very specific to what is considered the reason(s) for difficulty conceiving. There are recommendations that can help with general fertility, but understanding the factor(s) is important to treatment efficiency.
