Infertility Q & A
What is infertility?
Infertility is the inability to become pregnant in women under 35 who have been trying to conceive for at least a year, or women over 35 who have been trying for at least six months. Men can also experience infertility.
Infertility sounds daunting, but conceiving after you’ve been labeled as infertile is possible. The doctors at FemmPro OB/GYN offer testing and personalized treatment plans to help you get pregnant.
In addition, one of the practice’s physicians, Marc Behar, MD, FACOG, specializes in helping patients who have had multiple miscarriages achieve a healthy pregnancy.
What causes infertility?
Infertility can happen to both men and women for a variety of different reasons. In women, doctors most often link infertility to issues, such as:
- Ovulation problems and subsequent hormonal imbalances
- Fallopian tube blockage
- Uterine fibroids
- Uterine abnormalities
In men, infertility most often stems from hormonal disorders, genetic disorders, disruptions to ejaculatory function, or disruptions to testicular function. These issues can impact male fertility because they cause sperm count changes, sperm mobility, and sperm shape.
To determine whether or not you have infertility, FemmPro OB/GYN can perform tests, such as bloodwork, pelvic ultrasounds, or abdominal ultrasounds. With testing, the practice can also determine the source of your infertility.
How do you treat infertility?
Every woman is different, and FemmPro OB/GYN knows that the best infertility treatment is one that has been customized for your unique needs.
Generally speaking, the practice begins fertility treatments by helping you achieve simple changes that can make a big impact, such as altering your lifestyle to eliminate underlying conditions and using an ovulation tracker.
From there, based on your wants, needs, and health concerns, FemmPro OB/GYN may choose and customize for you any one of numerous fertility treatments options, including:
- Hormone therapy
- Medication to stimulate ovulation
- In-vitro fertilization
- Intrauterine insemination
In addition, if a uterine fibroid or another physical blockage is causing your infertility, the practice can remove the blockage with minimally invasive surgery.
If you’re struggling to conceive for the first time or after multiple miscarriages, don’t give up hope. Instead, partner with FemmPro OB/GYN to learn more about your fertility, and give yourself the best chance with the right fertility treatment.
