If you hope to conceive someday, even if not in the near future, you should consider getting a fertility assessment.
The Purpose of a Fertility Assessment
Gaining awareness of your fertility health when trying to conceive gives you and your physician an indication if future testing is needed. This is important for two reasons; it enables you to identify and address any issues that could cause reproductive problems later on, or currently. It will also help your physician to measure any changes in your reproductive health over the years to come.
What the checkup involves
Your physician will start by taking a thorough medical history, with particular focus on the details of your menstrual cycle, any STDs, past pregnancies or miscarriages, and any known hormonal issues.
In order to rule out physical abnormalities within your reproductive system, your physician may also recommend a sonohysterogram, which evaluates the uterus and the shape of the uterine cavity. All of these tests allow your physician to determine whether you are ovulating, what your ovarian reserve is, whether you have any chronic conditions like Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and much more.
Prepare Now for Your Future
Preparing now may make it easier for you to build your family when you are ready. A Fertility Awareness Assessment will provide the information you need to be as prepared as possible.
You should also take steps to ensure that your general health, including diet and exercise, is optimized for when you wish to start trying to conceive, in order to maximize your chance of success.
