Reasons You Can't Get Pregnant - Plus A Fertility Checklist

Here's a list of the most common reasons women can't get pregnant, plus a fertility checklist. The reasons for not getting pregnant range from azoospermia (no sperm) to irregular periods. These male and female fertility checklists will help you decide if you should see a doctor or infertility specialist.

Think about making lifestyle changes if you can't get pregnant. 'Couples who have sought specialist help and have been diagnosed with 'unexplained fertility' may find that making certain lifestyle changes can assist in conception,' writes Michael Dooley in Fit for Fertility. 'These fertility checklists might be useful.'

Why Can't You Get Pregnant?

The Fit for Fertility Checklist is made up of four individual checklists, for the egg, the sperm, conception, and general male and female fertility problems.

Fertility Checklist #1: The Egg (Female Fertility)

Answer yes or no to the following questions:

1. Are you having irregular, short (less than 21 days) or long (greater than 34 days) periods?

2. Do you bleed between your periods?

3. Are you overweight (with a body-mass index greater than 25)?

4. Are you underweight (with a body mass index under 18.5)?

5. Do you exercise excessively?

6. Have you had treatment for cancer?

7. Are you being treated for depression?

8. Do you have diabetes?

9. Have you ever had thyroid problems?

10. Have you stopped having periods?

Fertility Checklist #2: The Sperm (Male Fertility)

Answer yes or no to the following questions:

1. Have you had an operation on your testicles?

2. Have you had a hernia repair?

3. Is there blood in your ejaculate?

4. Have you had mumps?

5. Have you had an injury to your testicles?

6. Do you have any family members with cystic fibrosis?

7. Have you had a vasectomy?

8. Are you overweight (with a body-mass index greater than 25)?

9. Are you taking medication for a peptic ulcer?

10. Do you have diabetes?

Fertility Checklist #3: Getting Pregnant

Answer yes or no to the following questions:

1. Do you have intercourse less than twice a week?

2. Do you have a problem with intercourse?

3. Do you have pain with intercourse?

4. Does your partner have problems with erection?

5. Does your partner have premature ejaculation?

6. Have you had the pelvic inflammatory disease?

7. Have you had an operation on your abdomen (eg, a burst appendix)?

8. Do you have discharge?

9. Have you had an ectopic pregnancy?

Make sure you have intercourse at the right time (when you're ovulating)!

Fertility Checklist #4: Male and Female Fertility Problems

Answer yes or no to the following questions:

Do you have a good, healthy diet?

Do you smoke or drink excessive amounts of alcohol?

Have you been exposed to environmental hazards?

Have you tried to conceive before without success?

Are you under significant stress?

Do you spend a lot of time apart?

Do you drink excessive amounts of caffeine?

Do you take regular medications?

Do you use recreational drugs?

Do you have a history of a genetic problem?

If you answered 'yes' to one or more of these questions, you need to consult a doctor about why you can't get pregnant. Make an appointment with your family physician doctor, and consider talking to our fertility specialist.

A Few Point To Be Consider For The Infertility are Stress, OverWeight, Irregular Periods, Having PCOS/PCOD Issue, Low Sperm Count , Sexual Problem.

You should do ultrasound examination of breasts. Breast pain is a common problem if it occurs before periods, because it happens due to hormonal changes, however if the pain stays all through the month or if you can feel some lump/swelling then you must do ultrasound examination of breasts. For pain you can take paracetamol tablets, also wearing a well fitting bra may help.

If tested very early before 6 weeks even usg can not detect the baby's heart beat. So repeat scan after 2 weeks if there are no problems in ghe meanwhile. If at that time also same findings are present it can suggest miscarriage, so continue medications and hope for the best, relax.

Impotance of drinking water

Did You Know…that drinking water in the morning immediately upon waking up can have amazing therapeutic effects for a multitude of health conditions—ranging from pain to asthma to cancer?

This remarkable water therapy originates from ancient Ayurvedic medicine. In Sanskrit, the name for the practice is Usha Paana Chikitsa, which roughly translates to “early morning water treatment.”

Can Water Wash Away Disease?

It has long been known that drinking water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach purifies the body’s internal system. An especially important result of this treatment is that it cleanses the colon, which makes the body much more able to absorb nutrients from food.

This is achieved through the production of new blood, or haematopaises. This fresh blood has an immense restorative effect in the body and can even cure existing ailments.

If your wife has got her regular periods it means she is not pregnant. If she misses her periods anytime then check with urine pregnancy test 4-5 days after expected date.

As weather is changing, new water is getting mixed with old water and due to water pits and water storage in and around houses; there is increasing chance of mosquito breeding. Try to keep surroundings clean, avoid pits around houses. There is increased risk of diarrhea so drink clean and hygienic water to avoid many viral diseases.

Hi lybrate-user. The pain you have during periods is called dysmenorrhoea and it can be due to many causes. It could be due to endometriosis, hormonal disturbance, etc. Get an ultrasound scan of pelvis done to see for any pelvic pathology that be causing the pain. Meanwhile try tablets meftal spas during periods for the pain.

Dear Anargha, There are a few ways of knowing the growth. First is clinical examination. Secondly to know the adequate growth of your fetus, you can undergo a growth scan- where sonography is done and baby's growth is monitored to know if it's adequate or not. Also a colour Doppler may be performed if need be.
