Infertility Q & A

What causes infertility?

You’re certainly not alone if you struggle with infertility. Over 6 million American women have problems getting or staying pregnant. If you’re having infertility issues, it could be linked to:

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Primary ovarian insufficiency
  • Blocked fallopian tubes
  • Endometriosis 
  • Fibroids 

Infertility isn’t just a woman’s problem. Poor sperm motility, low sperm count, and abnormal sperm shapes can all lead to fertility issues. Infertility may also occur if there are issues with both the man and the woman.

When should I see an OB/GYN for infertility?

The compassionate team at Contemporary Women's Care wants to help you achieve your goals of having a family and experiencing the miracle of childbirth. They encourage you to come in for an infertility evaluation if:

  • You’re over age 35 and can’t get pregnant after six months
  • You’re under age 35 and can’t get pregnant after one year
  • You have a history of miscarriages

You should also have an infertility evaluation if you have a history of gynecological problems, such as PCOS. 

Is there an effective treatment for infertility?

To get pregnant, you have to produce and release a healthy egg. Sperm has to meet with the egg after it’s released. This fertilized egg has to travel all the way down your fallopian tubes and attach to the inside of your uterus in order for pregnancy to occur. If there are abnormalities with any of these steps, getting or staying pregnant can be difficult.

The team at Contemporary Women's Care collaborates to pinpoint the cause of your infertility and get you started on personalized treatment. Your infertility treatment may include one or more of the following medications:

  • Metformin 
  • Bromocriptine 
  • Clomiphene citrate
  • Follicle-stimulating hormone 
  • Gonadotropin-releasing hormone 
  • Human menopausal gonadotropin

Your OB/GYN at Contemporary Women's Care may also recommend an intrauterine insemination (IUI) procedure. This simple in-office procedure involves placing your partner’s sperm into your uterus near your fallopian tubes to help sperm get closer to your egg.
