u want to get pregnant? Wonderful! Here you can find out what you need to know about the desire to have children and fertility - and what you can do if you can't conceive.

Couples who decide to become pregnant have an exciting time ahead of them. The shared waiting, the hope, the happiness when it finally happens: It brings you closer together! In such an exciting phase, you naturally don't like to think about the fact that there may be factors that could limit your fertility.

Dr Alexander Just, gynaecologist, fertility expert and developer of the Just One Step method, specialises in reproductive medicine and has already accompanied countless couples on the path to their dream child. His experience shows:

"Many people automatically assume that they have very good or good fertility. But this is not always the case. Your own fertility is limited and many couples don't worry about it until they want to have children. However, the earlier you start looking into it, the better help you can get if the worst comes to the worst!"

But what does this mean for you and getting pregnant? We'll tell you here - and also how femSense can help you determine your fertility.

"Expanding your knowledge on the subject is the first step towards becoming more aware of your own individual fertility," Alexander Just is convinced.

If fertility is severely restricted, artificial insemination by means of IVF or ICSI may also be an option. However, the most important thing in all cases is early clarification.

"Most women who visit my fertility clinic do so far too late. Often they haven't even had a proper examination at this point. That's why every woman should think about her fertility as early as possible!" advises Alexander Just.
