Infertility is a broad term that simply means that you’re not getting or staying pregnant, even though pregnancy is your desire. In most cases, female infertility is described as going at least one year of trying to get pregnant without success.

If you’re between 35-40 years old, you might have infertility issues if you’ve gone at least six months of trying to get pregnant but haven’t been successful at getting or staying pregnant.

After age 40, your doctor will want to evaluate you for infertility before you start trying to get pregnant because fertility is more complex as you get older.

The compassionate team at Lake OB-GYN Associates of Mid-Florida, LLC wants to ensure you get to the root cause of your infertility struggles so that you and your partner can have a happy and healthy baby. Some of the most well-known causes of infertility include:

  • Uterine fibroids
  • Failure to ovulate
  • Implantation failure
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Abnormal menstrual cycle
  • It’s also possible that the underlying issue is with sperm quality, so it might be helpful to have your partner’s sperm evaluated.

Your dedicated doctor spends time evaluating you, running lab tests, and looking at any necessary ultrasound imaging to get to the root cause of why you are experiencing infertility struggles. They spend time educating you about your infertility cause and talking with you about your treatment options.

Finding the right type of treatment for infertility is highly personalized, based on your health history and underlying diagnosis. Your doctor at Lake OB-GYN Associates of Mid-Florida, LLC could recommend fertility drugs like:

  • Bromocriptine, a dopamine agonist, if your pituitary gland produces too much prolactin
  • Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) injections to stimulate ovulation
  • Clomiphene citrate or letrozole to stimulate ovulation
  • Gonadotrophins to stimulate more egg production
  • Lake OB-GYN Associates of Mid-Florida, LLC also partners with local infertility specialists to aid in conception, including intrauterine insemination (IUI), so you can expect dedicated care throughout your journey.

LINDSEY H.

Dr. Lee and Dr. Britt are by far best the gynecologists in Central Florida. They always make me feel welcome and it’s wonderful to see the same doctors for over 10 years. The Leesburg office is in dire need of some updating and I wished there was more hand sanitizer readily available, but that has nothing to do with the outstanding care that Dr. Lee and Dr. Britt give.
