I am Dr. Lim Lei Jun, Fertility Specialist at Sunfert International, one of Malaysia's most technologically advanced IVF centres. I graduated with honours from the Manipal Academy of Higher Education (India) in 1999 and proceeded with my postgraduate specialisation in Obstetrics and Gynaecology with the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, UK. After 10 years of public service with the Ministry of Health Malaysia, I ran a thriving private practice before joining Sunfert International to realise my dreams of helping couples facing sub-fertility. I obtained my Certificate in Reproductive Technology from the National University of Singapore and with my keen interest in Minimal Access Surgery, went on to complete my fellowship training in Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery in India. I am a mother of four lovely daughters and am a full-time vegan. I am an active member of the Tzu-Chi International Medical Association and find time volunteering efforts with refugee camps, outreach medical missions and free clinics for the underprivileged.

I am a 35 year old female. I have 2 children and plan to have another. I have been trying for 2 years without any results. Can I do IVF at my age? Does age affect the success of IVF?
Doctor, I am a 23 year old female. I experience bleeding after having sex. The blood is pink and different from menstruation blood. This month, my menstruation cycle is late. My cycle is usually after 28-30 days, with it lasting for 7-8 days. My pregnancy test results show negative pregnancy. Is this bleeding dangerous? Thank you for your explanation, Doc.

I am a 41 year old female who is planning for pregnancy. It has been one year but I still see no result. My menstruation cycle is normal (after 26-28 days) and lasts for 3 days. I have consulted an OBGYN and my condition is normal. My questions are:
- Am I still able to get pregnant?
- On June 4th 2020, I had my menstruation as usual. On June 7th, my menstruation ended. My fertile time was between June 12th-16th, but on the 12th, I experienced another menstruation cycle with a lot of blood. I went to an OBGYN and had a vagina examination and USG, but still, the results were fine. Is this normal?

I diagnosed with bicornuate uterus. Saw many gynae all said not sure why i cannot carry a baby till full term. I can conceive but not able to have a complete full term pregnancy. Im not sure if i still can try for 4th pregnancy or not as my age is now above 40. Recently found that there are adenomyosis in my uterus, gynae said there will be risk of miscarriage again if i want to get pregnant again, and suggested based on my age to better don't plan for pregnancy anymore. I am very confused, i wish to have a child but my health problem make me worry more than hope. Can doctor advice me what should i do?
