Fertility drugs can treat many issues, increasing the chances of conceiving and carrying the baby to term. These drugs treat specific problems, so a person should take them only at a doctor’s recommendation.
Taking fertility drugs without a diagnosis will not necessarily increase the chances of getting pregnant.
Infertility can result from problems in males and females. Most doctors recommend seeking treatment if a woman cannot get pregnant or continues to have miscarriages after trying to conceive for 12 months or longer.
For women over 35, many doctors recommend seeking treatment after 6 months of trying to conceive.
Women who do not have regular periods and women with medical conditions that could affect pregnancy should talk to a doctor before trying to get pregnant.
