Trying to conceive

Trying for a baby is an exciting time for many couples but you probably have many questions you’d like answered – particularly if you have been trying to conceive for a while. Age, lifestyle and other factors can impact your fertility, and understanding the inner workings of the female and male reproductive systems can be vital to your success. 

If you have been trying to conceive for more than twelve months and you’re under 36 (or over six months if you’re over 36) we recommend you see a TasIVF fertility specialist for some basic fertility tests, a full assessment and to discuss your options.
