Infertility Q & A

What is Infertility?

Infertility impacts countless couples wanting to conceive every year. But infertility doesn’t always mean you can’t get pregnant and have the family you desire. It may simply mean that you might need a little medical intervention to help you achieve your goals.

Infertility is defined as being unable to:

  • Stay pregnant
  • Get pregnant after one year
  • Get pregnant after six months if you’re 35 or older

 

Because a number of underlying issues affect your fertility success, and even your pregnancy, it’s important to have a comprehensive evaluation to get to the root of your infertility as soon as possible.

What Causes Infertility?

To get pregnant, you must release an egg from your ovaries, which then travels down your fallopian tube and joins with a sperm. Then, this fertilized egg has to attach itself to the inner lining of your uterus. If there are any abnormalities or issues with any of these organs or processes, it can be challenging for you to become pregnant.

Infertility can be caused by:

  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Uterine abnormalities
  • Blocked fallopian tubes
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease

 

Sometimes, infertility may be linked to the size, movement, or shape of sperm. No matter what’s causing your infertility struggles, you can get the compassionate care you need at Garden OB/GYN.

Can I Get Treatment for Infertility?

Absolutely! At Garden OB/GYN, your dedicated practitioner runs one or more fertility screenings, such as ovulation testing, hormone testing, or a hysterosalpingography, to pinpoint the cause of your infertility. Depending on your diagnosis, your infertility treatment plan may include any of the following medications to enhance your ovulation:

  • Bromocriptine
  • Clomiphene citrate
  • Follicle-stimulating hormones
  • Human menopausal gonadotropin
  • Gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogs

 

These infertility medications are taken either orally or through injections, depending on the drug. As an alternative, if sperm quality is of concern, your practitioner at Garden OB/GYN may recommend an in-office intrauterine insemination (IUI) to insert your partner’s semen directly into your uterine cavity.

Garden OB/GYN also offers in-vitro fertilization (IVF), assisted hatching, and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), among other services, to give you even more options to conceive.
