Infertility Q & A

Infertility is a common condition and affects as many as 15% of American couples. Most couples are not diagnosed with infertility until they have tried for six months to a year depending on their age without success.

Many men and women assume that getting pregnant is easy, but there are actually several factors that must be in place for a successful pregnancy, including:

  • Healthy eggs
  • Healthy sperm
  • Clear and open fallopian tubes to transport the egg from ovary to uterus
  • Sperm that can fertilize the egg within the uterus
  • Successful uterine implantation of the fertilized egg
  • A healthy embryo
  • Proper maternal hormonal balance

If any of these factors are not ideal, infertility can become a problem.

For women, testing for infertility involves a thorough physical exam and a discussion of your health history and previous pregnancies or attempts to become pregnant. Your gynecologist also evaluates your body temperature and ovulation.

You may also need X-ray imaging or even a laparoscopy to evaluate the condition of your fallopian tubes and other reproductive organs. These tests can help identify conditions that might be preventing you from becoming pregnant.

Treatment depends on your specific set of needs. If you have ongoing health issues that are not being properly managed, treatment may involve getting you to a healthier state where pregnancy is more likely to occur. You may need to lose weight, change your medications, or make general improvements in your health and wellness.

Timing also plays a critical role in becoming pregnant, which is why your specialist helps you understand the optimal times in your menstrual cycle to try and conceive. There are plenty of tools and techniques that can help you identify when you’re ovulating.
Certain medications can help stimulate ovulation. Some women can become pregnant through a procedure called intrauterine insemination, where healthy sperm are introduced into your uterus during ovulation.

Follicular studies can also help your gynecologist better understand your ovulation cycle. The process involves frequent ultrasound monitoring as your follicles develop, which helps determine the timing and chances of success for in vitro fertilization.

If you have intrauterine scarring, endometrial polyps, a uterine septum, or another physical condition that’s causing infertility, surgical procedures can address the issue and increase your chances of conceiving.
