When is the Right Time to See a Fertility Specialist?

About one in seven couples struggle with infertility and require assistance in becoming pregnant. The good news is recent breakthroughs in reproductive care are giving couples more hope than ever before. Treatments for infertility are rapidly advancing, but some conditions affecting fertility take more time to treat than others. Therefore, it is important to know when to seek care from a fertility specialist. Penn Fertility Care specialists are pioneers in the development of infertility treatments and are at the forefront of research in the field.
