Infertility Q & A

What is infertility?

Infertility occurs when you’re unable to conceive despite having frequent, unprotected sex for at least a year, or six months for women age 35 and over.

Your difficulty with conceiving may be due to a health issue that affects you or your partner, or a combination of factors that involve both of you.

Not being able to conceive is stressful, but there are many effective treatment options that can increase your chances of having a baby. 

What causes infertility?

The underlying cause of your infertility may be related to you or your partner. Dedicated to providing comprehensive care, the team at The Women's Center evaluates both you and your partner when you come in for help with your infertility.

Infertility in women

In women, infertility most often occurs due to problems with ovulation. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common cause of infertility. Women with PCOS may only ovulate only eight times a year. 

Abnormalities in the reproductive system are also common causes of infertility in women, such as scarring of the fallopian tubes from endometriosis or the presence of fibroids in the uterus. 

Infertility in men

Infertility in men occurs if there are problems in the quality or quantity of sperm. Problems with the delivery system, such as premature ejaculation or blockages, may also be the issue.

What happens during an infertility consultation?

When you visit The Women's Center for an infertility consultation, the team conducts a comprehensive evaluation to pinpoint the root cause of your infertility. As noted, the team conducts both a female and male workup.

During your consultation, your doctor asks you and your partner detailed questions about your gynecological, sexual, medical, and family histories. 

For women, they perform a physical and pelvic exam, run blood work to assess hormone levels, and perform an ultrasound or minimally invasive surgery to evaluate reproductive organs.

For men, they perform a physical exam and run lab work to assess overall health, as well as the health and function of sperm. 

How is infertility treated?

The team at The Women's Center customizes your infertility treatment plan based on the underlying cause of your difficulties. 

Your treatment plan may include:

  • Lifestyle modifications
  • Fertility medication
  • Minimally invasive surgery to fix structural abnormalities
  • Intrauterine insemination

Your provider reviews your infertility treatment options in detail so you and your partner can make the most informed decision about how to proceed.
