Trying to start a family from a couple of months but without success. Suggestions? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
i need help regarding the guidance on pre-conceiving medical check ups
for family planning
Are you looking to plan family or are you looking for pregnancy?
isnt it the same
No, it is not the same.
ok, then what is the difference
May I know if you are planning for pregnancy or trying to prevent pregnancy now?
Family planning in simple words refers to methods to prevent pregnancy.
So please let me know what are you looking for?
ok.. then i'm planning for pregnancy
Ok. May I know your age and gender?
female, age - 28
Are you periods regular?
more or less... cycle varies between 34 - 40 days
Were you on any contraceptives to prevent pregnancy?
if not, do you have any difficulty in conceiving?
These details are relevant to answer your query.
I hope you do not mind answering them.
Not recently, though i have taken them in past
thats ok, i understand
Are you facing any difficulty to conceive?
we have been trying for past 3 months
Let me brief you.
The most important criteria in women that influence chances of conception is body weight and regularity of menstrual cycle.
i have an average body weight. i weigh 53 kgs with height of 5'2
If your weight are in ideal limits and your cycles are not very irregular, there are good chances of conceiving.
It's good to know that your weight is normal.
At this point of time my suggestions are as follows:
i did have an irregular cycle earlier but it is generally regular now
apart from screening for HIV, syphillis and hepatits needs to checked once pregnancy is confirmed.
will follow this
anything else that i need to do
if you find any difficulty in conceiving.
ok.. how long does it take generally for conceiving.. what is the normal time period
On medical grounds we do not have any such standard time line as normal conceiving time.
Generally you can try as long as an year and more before opting for medical assistance.
As your age is 28, and your periods have normalized, I do not expect you to have any difficulty in conceiving.
So please do not be concerned and keep trying as you are now.
Take folic acid supplement and observe every month.
ok, will do that & also take the tests mentioned by you.
If you are unable to conceive in the next 6-9 months time, you should opt for the other test which I mentioned.
I hope it is clear to you.
Do you have any other query?
yes it is
thanks for your guidance
You are welcome.
no other query
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
