You have been trying to conceive for at least 12 months without success (6 if you are over 35 years old) and you may be wondering if there is something affecting your fertility. Scheduling an appointment with a fertility specialist is a daunting but important step to understanding what is preventing you from getting pregnant.
For many of us, starting a family is important. However, it's not always easy. In vitro fertilisation, better known as IVF, gives a lifeline of hope to couples who have so far been unable to have a child. For same-sex couples, it raises the question of which partner will be the baby's biological parent. Reciprocal IVF is one option that allows two female partners to share in the process of having a child, with one partner providing the genes and the other carrying the embryo. Fertility Specialist Dr Malini Uppal explains.
