The desire to get pregnant and have a baby is only natural but with the advances of medical technology in helping women and couples get pregnant, more and more people are quick to pull the trigger and seek medical assistance before they really should. The typical time frame that most medical professionals use to gauge whether or not a woman or a couple is infertile is 12 months. If the woman is over the age of 35, the time frame goes down to 6 months. So if you have not reached these two time milestones, do not worry about being infertile. Allow nature to take its course first before deciding on medical intervention.

The decision to have children is a very significant decision and the pressure to have children can be great. However, it is really important to remember as all fertility treatments are not without its risks. For example, fertility drugs do increase the chance of multiple births which raises the likelihood of health risks to the mother and babies. The stress of this decision can also be to the detriment of your fertility. Though there have not been a published study done that shows a clear link between stress and fertility, more and more doctors believe that there is one. In fact, Harvard University stress expert Alice Domar, PhD, cites that in her experience of trying to relieve the stress of women who are feeling tense pressure about not being able to conceive, actually did get pregnant by learning how to relax.

If it makes you and your partner feel better and ease your anxieties, it may be a good idea to have a physical exam to rule out any major reasons why you could not get pregnant. Once the major causes of infertility are ruled out, the peace of mind of knowing major obstacles are not in the way of a pregnancy can reduce the stress trying. Recent statistics have shown that 85 percent of couples do get pregnant within a year of trying so you should not give yourself undue stress about not conceiving if you are under the one year mark.

The bottom line is this: if you and your partner are healthy, do not be so quick to rush to a fertility clinic because the chances are, you will get pregnant naturally without having to undergo invasive, expensive, and emotionally exhausting fertility treatments.

Getting pregnant is possible and many women have successfully brought a baby into this world. Keep an open mind and keep yourself as healthy as possible.
