Infertility Q & A

What causes infertility?

Infertility doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t get pregnant; it just means that it can be a little more difficult for you, and you may need some medical intervention along the way. You might have a hard time getting or staying pregnant due to:

  • Ovulation disorders, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Scar tissue buildup (pelvic adhesions)
  • Blockages in your fallopian tubes
  • Hyper- or hypothyroidism
  • Uterine polyps or fibroids
  • Endometriosis 

Sometimes, infertility stems from problems with sperm. Low sperm count, poor sperm quality, or even problems with sperm delivery — like premature ejaculation — can all lead to infertility issues. 

When should I see a doctor for infertility?

The compassionate providers at All About Women OB/GYN want to ensure you achieve your family goals. You should schedule an infertility evaluation if you:

  • Can’t get pregnant after 12 months of trying if you’re under age 35
  • Can’t get pregnant after six months of trying if you’re over age 35
  • Have had one or more miscarriages in the past
  • Have abnormal periods or heavy bleeding

All About Women OB/GYN provides comprehensive diagnostic screenings, including hormonal blood tests and hysterosalpingography (HSG) screenings, to get to the root of your infertility and help you find the best course of treatment. 

How is infertility treated?

After running all essential infertility testing and diagnosing you, your OB/GYN talks with you about ways to improve your fertility. They may recommend:

  • Clomiphene citrate (Clomid) pills to increase follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) levels
  • Stimulating ovulation, possibly with human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) injections
  • Intrauterine insemination (IUI) to place healthy sperm directly into your uterus

If you have an underlying health condition that’s causing your infertility, such as a buildup of scar tissue or endometrial polyps, your physician could recommend gynecological surgery to correct the issue. 

Because the team of OB/GYNs are highly experienced in modern infertility solutions, you can feel confident that you’re in entirely capable hands at All About Women OB/GYN.
