When to do fertility tests?

Pruebas de fertilidad

The vast majority of couples often have the desire to have a baby at home and begin with plans to achieve a pregnancy, but for over a year trying to do so they must go to a consultation with a fertility specialist to find out what  is causing it.

One of the most common reasons why you can not achieve a pregnancy are due to fertility problems.  To know if they suffer from this type of problem should go to a specialized clinic where doctors can perform the necessary tests to find out the causes.

Fertility tests are a great help to know if either or both are infertile and depending on the results can begin to take a treatment.
