Female infertility can be the result of underlying health issues or genetic conditions that interfere with your ability to achieve or maintain a healthy pregnancy.
The team at the Center for Reproductive Medicine can address a variety of female infertility causes including:
Endometriosis is a condition that describes the growth of the uterine lining (endometrium) outside of your uterus. This tissue continues to act like it should, thickening and breaking down during your menstrual cycle.
However, the tissue has no way to exit your body. The resulting pain, inflammation, and tissue growth can interfere with fertility.
Ovulation disorders disrupt the release of your eggs for fertilization by sperm. These disorders may be the result of hormonal imbalances, obesity, or underlying health issues that affect the ovulation cycle.
PCOS contributes to infertility when multiple follicles form instead of a single follicle. These follicles don’t produce eggs for release and fertilization.
Blockages or damage in your fallopian tubes can interfere with the release of your egg that’s necessary for fertilization.
Blockages can occur due to scar tissue or because of structural issues in the fallopian tube. Structural irregularities in your uterus can also cause female infertility.
Women are born with the number of eggs they carry, whereas men continue to produce sperm throughout their reproductive years. Over time, your egg supply lessens, and once you no longer have viable eggs for release, it can result in infertility.
The team at the Center for Reproductive Medicine offers on-site diagnostic testing services and a medical lab to accurately diagnose the underlying cause of your infertility.
You may need blood work to identify hormone imbalances or an ultrasound to confirm blockages or abnormalities in your uterus or fallopian tubes.
Your treatment plan for infertility depends on its underlying cause. The reproductive endocrinologists at the Center for Reproductive Medicine customize your treatment based on your unique needs.
When you have infertility due to low ovarian reserve, a hormone imbalance, or endometriosis, you may benefit from medications. The doctors can also determine if you’re a candidate for minimally invasive robotic surgery to repair damage or clear obstructions in your uterus or fallopian tubes.
If you still need assistance with overcoming infertility, the reproductive endocrinology team can discuss your options for artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization, and fertility preservation to increase your chances of achieving a successful pregnancy.
