Infertility

What is infertility?

Most women can conceive within 12 months of trying to get pregnant, but if you have tried to have a baby for over a year without success, you may have fertility problems. If you are over the age of 35 years and have been trying to get pregnant for over 6 months without success, it is also reasonable to undergo further evaluation.

Infertility is a complex and difficult condition. If you're diagnosed with infertility, it's natural to be upset. But there's no need to give up on your dreams of motherhood. The experts at Adefris & Toppin Women’s Specialists can help you find out what's causing your infertility and how best to treat it. 

What causes infertility?

Hormonal imbalances and structural problems in your reproductive system can cause infertility. Possible causes of infertility include:

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Issues involving ovulation
  • Primary ovarian insufficiency
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Uterine abnormalities
  • Male factor

Sometimes, infertility occurs even when there's no clear cause. Unexplained infertility is intensely frustrating, but fertility treatment may still help you conceive. 

During your consultation, your Adefris & Toppin Women’s Specialists physician helps you review your options for fertility treatments. The physicians provide ongoing guidance and support throughout the treatment process.

How is infertility treated?

If a hormonal imbalance is to blame for your infertility, medication may resolve the problem. Your physician might recommend a variety of hormone medications to help you conceive. You may need to continue taking some of these medications throughout your pregnancy.

Surgery can also treat many causes of infertility. If you have tissue blocking your fallopian tubes or uterus, for example, an operation may increase your chances of conceiving.

The experts at Adefris & Toppin Women’s Specialists can address structural problems that lead to infertility. If you need surgery, the team can help you choose the right procedure, and provide expert care before, during, and after your surgery.

What happens if I need extra help getting pregnant?

Most women successfully conceive after receiving infertility treatment. If you still have a hard time getting pregnant, your physician can help you determine the next step.

Fertility treatments help many women expand their families, and assisted reproductive technologies like in vitro fertilization (IVF) may be right for you. Your physician can give the information you need to get started with assisted reproduction.
