His friends are your friends too.
Many people are surprised that in 50% of infertile couples both he and she have a problem.
That's why Dr. Amos highly recommends that you and your partner see a doctor as soon as you decide to start a family. Seeing a doctor for a periconception visit may help you find out if there are any problems or not and may help you get pregnant faster. But even if you're already a few cycles into baby-making mode, answering the following three questions as soon as possible will go a long way to establishing your chances of a successful conception.
- How are his sperm?
- Am I ovulating?
- Are my fallopian tubes open?
As Dr. Amos loves to say, getting your sperm tested is the only test in the world that involves an orgasm! And remember guys, letting your partner subject herself to batteries of invasive tests and drug regimens without having yourself evaluated just isn't, well, manly.
Now that you've learned all the basics about how to get pregnant, it's time to start fertility charting! Start learning how to properly chart in the next lesson.
