Infertility Q & A

What is infertility?

Infertility is a diagnosis a physician makes when you can’t become pregnant after at least 12 months of having unprotected sex. You are also considered to have infertility issues if you can become pregnant but can’t maintain a pregnancy, such as in the case of miscarriages and stillbirths.

The root cause of infertility can relate to issues in either the man or woman, or both. In some cases, there’s no specific reason for difficulties conceiving a child. 

The medical team at Women’s Health Care Center, PLLC, offers comprehensive infertility counseling and resources that focus on your specific needs to achieve and sustain a healthy pregnancy. 

What causes infertility?

There are a number of factors that can influence your ability to conceive a child. For women, possible issues that cause infertility include:

  • Polyps
  • Infections
  • Inflammation
  • Endometriosis
  • Hormone disorders
  • Premature menopause
  • Damage to reproductive organs

You may also struggle to become pregnant due to certain cancers or after undergoing cancer treatments.

For men, infertility can be the result of poor sperm production, premature ejaculation, or underlying chronic health issues that damage sperm or interfere with reproductive health. 

How is infertility treated?

Treatment depends on the root cause of your infertility issues. Once your Women’s Health Care Center, PLLC, provider understands if the issue is with you or your partner, they create a treatment plan to improve your chances of a successful pregnancy. 

Women with underlying issues, like endometriosis or hormone disorders, may need medications to address infertility. You may also need surgery to address blockages in your fallopian tubes or ovaries that make it difficult to conceive. 

The Women’s Health Care Center, PLLC, staff also provides referrals for men who need treatment or surgery to address reproductive dysfunction or underlying chronic health issues.

Your provider also makes resources available to help you prepare for conception. They ensure your body is functioning optimally to maintain a healthy, full-term pregnancy.
