Infertility is defined as the inability to get pregnant after 12 months of trying. For women 35 and over, infertility may be diagnosed after six months of trying without success.
You may also be struggling with infertility if you’re able to get pregnant but are unable to carry to term. Multiple miscarriages are often a symptom of this variety of infertility.
Infertility is a common problem in the United States. While women often feel the pressure when they’re unable to get pregnant, infertility issues are generally equally divided between men and women.
For most women, infertility issues relate to problems with ovulation. Every month your ovaries release an egg in anticipation of fertilization. If you’re not ovulating regularly or there are health issues associated with your eggs, then you may have a difficult time getting pregnant.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common cause of infertility and ovulation irregularities. Some women with PCOS have fewer than nine menstrual cycles a year.
Structural abnormalities may also affect your ability to get pregnant, such as scar tissue in your fallopian tubes, uterine fibroids, or a physical problem related to your uterus.
The team at ObGyne Birth Center for Natural Deliveries conducts a comprehensive evaluation when you come to the office with concerns about infertility. During your visit, the team reviews your gynecological and medical history and performs a physical and pelvic exam.
The team also runs various tests to identify the underlying cause of your infertility. These tests may include blood work to check hormone levels and an ultrasound to evaluate your reproductive organs.
Treatment for your infertility depends on the underlying cause. When possible, the team at ObGyne Birth Center for Natural Deliveries provides the necessary care you need to improve your chances of conception. Your treatments may include medication to increase ovulation or a surgical procedure to improve the structure and function of your reproductive organs.
If your doctor at ObGyne Birth Center for Natural Deliveries is unable to provide the care you need, they refer you to a subspecialist for further management.
