Infertility Q & A

When is infertility diagnosed?

Infertility is typically diagnosed after a year of trying to get pregnant despite regular, unprotected sex. For women 35 or older, infertility is diagnosed after six months of trying.

About 10-15% of couples suffer from infertility, and the reasons vary. The team at Yorktown Health works with you when you’re struggling with infertility. All evaluation and counseling is done right in their comfortable office, and they offer support and comfort as you face this difficult challenge.

What causes infertility?

Infertility doesn’t have the same cause for every couple who has difficulty getting pregnant. In about one-third of cases, infertility is due to issues involving the woman, and another third are due to issues with the man. In the last third of cases, infertility is due to problems with both partners or it just can’t be easily explained.

What are the treatments for infertility?

At Yorktown Health, your infertility evaluation begins with a thorough review of both partners’ reproductive health. A woman may undergo blood testing and ultrasounds to evaluate hormones and the health of reproductive organs. Men may undergo sperm analysis.

The team at Yorktown Health helps you and your partner make lifestyle changes that optimize your ability to conceive. These include dietary measures, exercise recommendations, and stress reduction techniques.

In addition, a woman may benefit from hormone treatments to stimulate ovulation. This helps you produce viable eggs that may become fertilized through intercourse or intrauterine insemination and result in a successful pregnancy. Hormones may be offered orally or via injection.

The team helps you understand the impact of these treatments and allows you to decide how aggressive you want to be in stimulating ovulation. Your treatment decision depends on the cause of your infertility, if one has been determined, as well as your age and your pregnancy history. Your personal preferences, beliefs, and time trying to conceive are also taken into consideration.
