Will You Be Able to Have a Baby?

You'll never really know if you'll have fertility issues until you try to conceive.
But if
you're under
35 and have
been trying for
more than a year,
talk with your
gynecologist.
She may be able
to pinpoint a
specific
problem or
refer you to a
reproductive
endocrinologist
who specializes
in the diagnosis
and treatment
of infertility.
If you're 35 or
older, put
yourself on a
shorter schedule:
"Get help
if you haven't
conceived in six
months," says
Daniel Potter,
M.D. "No
matter how
young you look,
if you're 40, your
eggs are still
40." For more
information or
support, go

Infertility
Association's
