Infertility Q & A
What is Infertility?
If you’ve been trying to get pregnant for a year without success or you’ve had multiple miscarriages, you may be dealing with infertility. Conception is a multi-step process that involves:
- A release of an egg or ovulation
- Movement of the egg down your fallopian tube
- Sperm fertilization of the egg
- Implantation of the egg to your uterus
A malfunction in any one of these steps can cause infertility.
When Should I See a Doctor About Infertility Issues?
The OB/GYN experts at Woodglen Medical Group recommend scheduling an appointment for a comprehensive fertility evaluation if you’ve been trying to get pregnant for a year without success. If you’re 35 or older, you should come in for an examination with the fertility specialist after six months of trying.
Women with irregular periods, pelvic inflammatory disease, or endometriosis may also want to schedule an evaluation with the fertility specialist to discuss ways to improve your chances of getting pregnant.
If you’ve had multiple miscarriages, the fertility specialist at Woodglen Medical Group may be able to provide answers and treatment options after a thorough evaluation.
What Causes Infertility?
You may be having difficulty getting pregnant for any number of reasons; in many cases, it may be an issue with your partner’s fertility. For women, an issue with ovulation is the most common cause of infertility, whether it’s a hormone-related issue or your ovaries aren’t working normally.
A structural issue with your uterus, blocked fallopian tubes, and fibroids are also common factors that may affect your ability to conceive.
