The commonest causes for delay in conception are summarised below and as many as 1 in 6 couples are affected.



Ovulatory (eg polycystic ovarian syndrome - PCOS)

Male factor (eg sperm problems or sexual difficulties)

Tubal disease (eg from scarring due to infection or endometriosis)


Couples having regular intercourse where the woman has regular periods and no obvious risk factors should be reassured that it is normal to take up to a year to conceive. This advice is clearly not appropriate for older women or for those with symptoms and this group should consider tests to investigate potential problems



Irregular, infrequent or absent periods

Pelvic pain and/or pain during intercourse

History of pelvic infection or pelvic surgery eg for appendicitis

A fertility check up includes taking a detailed medical history
and examination where appropriate.

Fertility Pregnancy Test

Tests that may be offered include

Hormone profile (timed for the correct time in the menstrual cycle)

Pelvic ultrasound scan to check for fibroids, endometriosis

Sexual health screen

Test of Fallopian tube function

Semen analysis

Laparoscopy where appropriate (eg in women with pelvic pain or an abnormality suggestive of pelvic disease on ultrasound). The advantage of laparoscopy in this setting is that it allows both comprehensive assessment of the pelvis but also treatment that may improve the chance of conceiving.
