When should men see a doctor for infertility?
Men and women are often evaluated for fertility problems at the same time, so generally speaking, the same guidelines apply here too:
- Where the woman is under 35, couples who've been unsuccessfully trying to get pregnant for more than one year.
- Where the woman is over 35, couples who've been unsuccessfully trying to get pregnant for more than 6 months.
- While fertility problems in men don't often have symptoms, those with sexual problems or health conditions or risk factors known to impact fertility may want to get checked out sooner.
