Infertility may be related to characteristics of women, men or both, which contribute to the difficulty in implanting the embryo in the uterus, initiating pregnancy.

In case of difficulty in getting pregnant what you can do is to seek a gynecologist or urologist to diagnose the cause of the difficulty in getting pregnant. Depending on the cause, the treatment will be different and adjusted, ranging from the correction of disorders that are altering the couple's ability to reproduce, to the use of techniques to assist pregnancy. Some of the most frequent treatments are:

  • Use of folic acid and other vitamins;
  • Relaxation techniques;
  • Know the woman's fertile period;
  • Use of hormonal remedies;
  • In vitro fertilization;

Because it's harder to get pregnant at 40

The difficulty to get pregnant at 40 is greater because after the age of 30 the quality of the woman's eggs decreases, and by the age of 50 they are no longer able to perform their function, making pregnancy more difficult.

In cases where the woman tries to get pregnant with her second child, after the age of 40, this can be more difficult even though she has already become pregnant, because the eggs no longer have the same quality. However, there are treatments that help ovulation and stimulate the maturation of eggs, such as the use of hormonal drugs, which can facilitate pregnancy.
