How can I help you?
need come clarification on fertility period
Please describe your query.
we're planning for kids for almost 2years. We consulted the doctor and didn't find any problem
for the infertlity
and we're spending together from 11-18th day from the menstrual day
May I know your age and gender?
Is your wife's period regular?
Are you there?
Will you be able to provide the details of tests that were done?
May I also know your partner's age?
yes, we did HSG, thyroid tests
she is of 28
Besides hsg and thyroid test what other tests were performed?
unable to remember the other, can you please mention the normal tests to be done for this so that I can be able to remember from the names
Let me explain.
Fertility is affected by many factors.
We require systematic investigations at particular time to understand what might be causing the problem.
If your wife has regular periods, it is less likely that she has problems with ovulation.
However to be completely sure she needs to be evaluated.
ok, when we consulted a doctor in one of the reputated hospitals
A trained infertility specialist will order test such as serum FSH, LH, AMH and prolactin levels at 3rd and 10th day of cycles
along with follicular scan and HSG
Besides these your semen analysis need to be performed to isolate the cause and its treatment.
semen analysis is also done, count and everything is fine
yes, follicular scan also we use to do from 10th day.
I understand you may need form of assistance to conceive
however without complete information I would not be able to give a detailed information to help you.
At this point of time, I would suggest you to undergo the tests your doctors suggested.
Once they are done, you can upload the reports on Ask A Specialist.
Our doctors would be able to review the findings and give an opinion that you can act on.
and more thing, may I know the fertility period during which the ovulation happens
and during this time, the couple should be together for every 24 hrs.?
If your wife has periods regularly at 25 days, then ovulation is roughly on the 8 - 12th day of her menstrual cycle.
Day 1 is calculated from the first day she has period.
In the sense if your wife has period of 22 february that is tomorrow, tomorrow would be day 1 and 1st march to 4th march would be the ovulation day.
i hope you got the calculation.
yes, got it
During the ovulation days, increase the frequency of sexual intercourse.
Make sure both you and your partner are stress free.
ok, what's the life span of sperm?
And encourage her to lie flat for 30 minutes after intercourse.
Surival rate reduces if sperms are abnormal or if they have reduced motility.
Hope i am clear.
Do you have any more questions?
yes, thanks a lot fro your time and information
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
