Infertility Q & A

What is infertility?

Infertility refers to the inability to become pregnant after at least 12 months of having unprotected intercourse. The team at Aspire For Women Obstetrics and Gynecology provides comprehensive and effective treatments for infertility and infertility counseling as well as resources that focus on your specific needs.

What causes infertility?

Female infertility is typically the result of a lack of ovulation or irregular ovulation. This might present as irregular or missed periods. 

Other causes of infertility include:  

  • Uterine fibroids
  • Problems with the pituitary or thyroid glands
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Uterine anomalies
  • Polyps
  • Infections
  • Inflammation
  • Endometriosis
  • Damage to reproductive organs

Blockages or scarring of the Fallopian tubes also make conception more difficult. You might also have difficulty getting pregnant because of certain cancers or after undergoing cancer treatments.

Your provider might also want to evaluate your partner. For men, infertility can be caused by premature ejaculation, poor sperm production, or underlying chronic health issues that interfere with reproductive health or damage sperm.

When should I see a doctor about infertility?

You should consider seeing a provider at Aspire For Women Obstetrics and Gynecology if you have an irregular menstrual cycle and you’re trying to get pregnant. 

If you’ve been having regular, unprotected intercourse for one year and you haven’t been able to conceive, you should visit Aspire For Women Obstetrics and Gynecology. 

If you have any concerns, symptoms, or questions, it’s best to put your general and reproductive health first and have an infertility evaluation with your provider.

How is infertility treated?

Your provider guides you through your treatment options based on the results of your infertility evaluation. You might be referred to a specialist if you require more advanced treatments.

If you have underlying issues, such as hormone disorders or endometriosis, your provider might suggest medications or healthy lifestyle changes like nutrition and sleep and stress management. Your provider might suggest fertility medications to induce ovulation, timed intercourse cycles, or surgical intervention to remove cysts, blockages, or fibroids.

At Aspire For Women Obstetrics and Gynecology, your provider gives you plenty of resources to help you prepare for conception and increase your chances of getting pregnant. The goal is to ensure your body is functioning optimally to maintain a healthy, full-term pregnancy.
