Dr. Hutchison, IVF Tucson, talks about the people who are ideal candidates for fertility treatment. Any woman, who is under age thirty-five and has been trying to conceive for more than a year without being successful, ought to resort to fertility treatment or IVF. Dr. Hutchison emphasizes the importance of getting evaluated before the age of thirty-five to avoid complications and increase the chances of conception. Other good IVF candidates include women enduring fertility conditions like endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). They can easily overcome their infertility symptoms and conceive. Women with irregular ovulation cycles can also benefit from IVF. Dr. Hutchison suggests that the male partners, also, should get evaluated, especially if they have had any medical issues in the past.

People should seek fertility treatment if they’ve been trying to get pregnant for a year and they are under age thirty five and they haven’t had any success. Or if they are over age thirty five and they have been trying for about six months. And the reason for that is trying to get an evaluation in earlier after thirty five, thirty six, is because, we really like to get that first baby born before age forty because the chances of getting pregnant go down so rapidly in the late thirties. So, even if there is nothing wrong in the late thirties, we like to kind of get that information ahead of time so that we’re not playing catch up when they’re age thirty eight or thirty nine. Umm, people need that; nowadays we see a lot of people who have irregular menses, so their periods are irregular. So, if you don’t feel like you are ovulating regularly, you need to get in. If you have a male partner, who has medical problems like type 2 diabetes or has had medical issues like have had any cancer therapy, the evaluation needs to start for them as well earlier. If you have significant pelvic pain or pain with intercourse, something that might suggest Endometriosis, we usually suggest that you get in and get evaluated earlier and then if you have, problems like, or history of infection, pelvic infection, something like that, we like to get you evaluated earlier as well.
