FAQ – Infertility

What should I do when I do not get my menstruation?

As a first step, you should do a pregnancy test, in order to check if the reason for not getting your monthly bleeding might be that you are pregnant. If the pregnancy test is negative, there can be many reasons for you not menstruating. Without a gynaecological examination, more serious causes cannot be excluded, so you should definitely visit your gynaecologist!

What to do if we do not manage to get pregnant?

If you do not become pregnant after one year of trying (in case you are 35 years old or older, after half a year), we advise to do an examination of the hormones, check for blockages in the fallopian tubes (HyCoSy) and to do a semen analysis. After seeing the results of these tests, further steps can be defined.

I have severe pain during menstruation, is this normal?

No. Pain during menstruation is never normal. It can have multiple reasons, but all cases have one thing in common: there is a remedy. Consult your gynaecologist and do not put yourself through unnecessary suffering!

I have not given birth before, can I use an intrauterine contraceptive device (contraceptive coil)?

Yes, both the copper-based intrauterine devices (IUD) and hormonal intrauterine devices have versions advised for women who have not given birth before.
