What causes infertility?
Infertility is a complex problem that results in difficulty getting or staying pregnant for over 6.1 million American women between the ages of 15-44. Getting pregnant seems like a simple process: the sperm has to reach the egg to fertilize it. However, there are a series of biological steps that must take place for this to happen.
Common causes of infertility include:
- History of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
- Being overweight or underweight
- Blocked fallopian tubes
- Ovulation problems
In some cases, infertility stems from the male partner. Low sperm count, low sperm mobility, and abnormal sperm shape can all lead to infertility. In some cases, both the man and woman have underlying issues that require treatment.
When should I see a doctor about infertility?
At the practice of Calvin L. Hobbs, MD, PC, you can expect compassionate care for infertility. Dr. Hobbs understands how heartbreaking it can be to experience difficulty getting pregnant naturally or staying pregnant.
If you’re under the age of 35 and have not been able to get pregnant after having regular intercourse for one year, Dr. Hobbs encourages you to come in for an infertility exam. Or if you’re over age 35, you should consult him if you’ve been trying to get pregnant for six months without success.
It’s also important to have a comprehensive infertility exam if you have a history of miscarriages. Dr. Hobbs conducts extensive studies such as blood hormone evaluations, an ultrasound, and other screenings he feels are necessary to get to the root of your infertility struggles.
What are the treatment options for infertility?
Once Dr. Hobbs evaluates your reproductive health, he counsels you about how to improve your chances of becoming pregnant. Depending on the root cause of your infertility, he may recommend certain medications, minimally invasive procedures, or even surgical correction to improve your fertility.
