Infertility Q & A

Am I suffering from infertility?

Your provider can make an official infertility diagnosis after you've been consistently trying to conceive without results. 

If you're under 35, your provider can diagnose you with infertility after 12 consecutive months of trying to conceive unsuccessfully. If you're 35 or older, the time required to diagnose infertility goes down to six months.

An infertility diagnosis doesn't mean that there's no chance of ever having a baby, but it does mean that you might have to take some extra measures to give yourself the best chance. That begins with identifying the cause of your infertility.

How is the cause of infertility determined?

There are a variety of tests that may be able to isolate the cause of your infertility. These tests can include:

  • Pelvic ultrasound
  • Abdominal ultrasound
  • X-rays
  • Blood tests
  • Urine tests
  • Laparoscopy
  • Hysteroscopy
  • Semen testing of your partner

Your provider at The Center for Women's Health analyzes nearly all aspects of your reproductive health to determine exactly what's causing your infertility. 

In most cases, they can identify a cause, or at least a suspected cause. This can allow for the most effective treatment possible.

What are treatments for infertility?

The Center for Women's Health offers a wide range of infertility solutions, and they customize your treatment based on your needs and desires.

Treatment typically starts with the most noninvasive options first. This can include tracking your ovulation closely in combination with a healthy lifestyle. If you need help conceiving, options include:

  • Hormone therapy
  • Medication to induce ovulation
  • Recanalization to open fallopian tubes
  • In vitro fertilization
  • Intrauterine insemination

Your infertility treatments are up to you. If your age is a major concern, you might opt for more aggressive treatments sooner than you otherwise would. The team at The Center for Women's Health is here to support and guide you, regardless of which approach you choose.
