Advanced age. As a woman gets older, the quality of eggs released by her ovaries declines. This affects her ability to get pregnant. By the time a woman is 30, her chances of conceiving naturally have declined, and those chances drop rapidly every year after that. We can address this problem with a variety of methods, including in vitro fertilization.
Endometriosis. In endometriosis, tissue that normally lines the uterus grows in other areas of the body, usually inside the abdominal cavity. This condition can cause infertility. If necessary, it can be corrected by surgery. However, in mild cases, medication or in vitro fertilization is sometimes an effective treatment.
Fallopian tube blockage. The fallopian tubes carry eggs from the ovaries to the uterus. This condition can be addressed through surgery or bypass of the blockage via in vitro fertilization.
Genetic Disorders. Inheritable disorders such as cystic fibrosis can be addressed through in vitro fertilization in conjunction with pre-implantation genetic diagnosis.
Low or absent sperm count in a man. We can provide referrals to male infertility specialists for further treatment. We also offer ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) procedures.
Medical castration. Men and women undergoing radiation or chemotherapy for cancer often become sterile from the treatments. Our clinic can address that problem with fertility preservation therapy.
Polycystic ovary syndrome. This syndrome is characterized by a menstrual cycle that’s irregular or non-existent, a high level of male hormones, and sometimes, the appearance of small cysts in the ovaries. It can be treated with fertility drugs or other medications.
Recurrent pregnancy loss. There are a variety of reasons why some women have problems carrying a baby to full term. We provide comprehensive evaluation and testing to determine the causes and then address those causes with the most appropriate treatment.
Unexplained infertility. This problem can be addressed with a combination of fertility drugs and intrauterine insemination.
