Fertility Support Consultation – a simple appointment can make all the difference

Experiencing difficulties in getting pregnant is increasingly frequent, in Portugal and in the world. It can be caused by several factors, and it is a trend reinforced by the advancing age of first pregnancy, which is happening by choice and design, among young women and couples, especially in the West. A fertility support consultation is an important resource for anyone experiencing this difficulty, and is often the first step towards a successful outcome.

Medically speaking, we are facing a situation of infertility when a pregnancy does not occur over a considerable period of time in which there is sexual intercourse without contraception. In the case of women under 35 years of age, the defined period of time is 12 months; for women over 35, it is six months. In women aged 38 years or older, fertility support consultation should be sought as soon as possible, in order to immediately improve the chances of conception.

There are many different factors that can lead to difficulties in conceiving. First, women are choosing to have children later, for professional, social, or any other reason. Sexually transmitted diseases are also a major factor, and they too are increasingly prevalent. A sedentary lifestyle, obesity, alcohol and tobacco consumption - and even air pollution - are causes that are associated with a period that has historically been characterized by a decline in fertility in general, especially in the western world.

If you want to conceive and are having difficulties, whether you are with or without a partner, and in a heterosexual or homosexual relationship, Joaquim Chaves Saúde’s Clínica de Sintra offers a Fertility Support consultation, where you can find a specialized team that can help you find the best path to a successful pregnancy.
