9. Know When To See A Specialist
How long should a couple “try” before a fertility specialist/treatment should be considered?

Dr. Moragianni, another CCRM doctor at CCRM Northern Virginia, told us: "It all depends on the female’s age and the couple’s prior history. For a couple without prior pregnancies and/or complicating factors, not being pregnant after having had unprotected intercourse during the 'fertile window' for 12 months if the female is <35 years old (or 6 months if she is 35 or older) would warrant a fertility evaluation."
