Why am I not conceiving?

Q: I am 36 years old. I have been married for the past 9 years. Yet, we do not have any children. I conceived once, but had to abort due to doctor's negligence. Since then I have not been able to conceive till now. My periods have become irregular and the doctors are treating, with no results. Now they are saying that we may not have any issue. My husband and I love children and would like to have a child. What should we do? My periods jump from 1 to 2 months some times or may be 3 sometimes. At some stage they become regular for 6 to 8 months. Please suggest a good reference in India, especially at Bangalore or Bellary.

A:From your history it seems you have a problem with ovulation (egg formation). However, unless you are examined, it is difficult to prescribe all tests. Factors that essential for conception are proper ovulation, proper formation of corpus luteum with adequate production of progesterone, patent tubes, proper uterus, good cervical mucus, compatibility between your cervical mucus and your husband's sperms, and also, no problem with your husband's semen. I suggest you consult a senior obstetrician in any one of the major hospitals in Bangalore. However, let me advise you that both of you should be free of work commitments and family (parents, etc) commitments when you go for work up and treatment. Remember, you should not expect results within 1 or 2 visits. If you are living in Bellary, you should consult a gynaecologist there- there is a medical college there, so there would be experienced obstetricians in Bellary.
