Infertility Evaluation and Management techniques now make pregnancy possible for women who otherwise would be unable to conceive. The correct course of treatment is different for each woman and is based on the nature of the issues causing infertility. Our goal is to help patients understand their options and various methods for treating infertility, and to prepare for what lies ahead.
Infertility is a common issue, so you should never feel as if you are the only one experiencing it or as if you are in your struggle alone. Approximately eight million couples in the United States have fertility issues. Today’s medical advances provide us with the best opportunity yet to find the cause of a couple’s fertility problem and provide them with effective treatment.
What is Infertility?
A couple is considered to be experiencing infertility issues if after a full year of engaging in frequent unprotected intercourse they are unable to conceive. However, there are times in which fertility becomes an issue before a year of trying. Woman over the age of 35 or couples experiencing a sexual dysfunction might want to explore their fertility options before waiting a year. A fertility evaluation and management plan can help you utilize the time you have to the best of your advantage and determine the most advantageous course of treatment to pursue as quickly as possible.
We offer a comprehensive approach to infertility that includes an evaluation of the development and function of the reproductive health of both partners. We understand how sensitive it is for couples to deal with infertility issues and it is important to us that neither partner ever feels as if the problem is only his or her responsibility. We provide support throughout the entire process, so couples are better able to manage the emotional aspects of their fertility challenges.

Age and overall reproductive health can also interfere with your efforts. Our comprehensive evaluation and management plan includes:

We believe in treating our patients as a whole and monitoring their overall well being.
