TIP OF THE DAY: Cutting Corners to Get to Your Fertility Specialist

Posted on November 20, 2011 at 12:05 AM
How many times have you heard, "Oh, just relax. It'll happen [getting pregnant] when you least expect it. Why don't you go on vacation in the meantime?"
Fertility specialists notoriously tell you that you need to try on your own for a year before making an appointment to see them, so they can weed out the people who "just need to relax" from those who are truly infertile.

This is popularly referred to as a woman's "biological clock". Another risk that increases significantly into the mother's midlife is chromosomal abnormalities, to include Down syndrome
