Infertility affects more than 6 million women of childbearing age in the United States. Not being able to get pregnant can affect your emotional and mental health, as well as place a strain on your relationship. However, infertility doesn’t mean you won’t ever have a child. Dedicated to providing comprehensive women's health care, board-certified OB/GYN Judith Ortman-Nabi, MD, and the women’s health experts at All Care For Women in East Amherst, New York, offer infertility evaluations for women to help determine what’s causing the infertility problems. To schedule your infertility evaluation, contact the office by phone or book online today.
Infertility is defined as the inability to get pregnant after one year of regular intercourse without the use of contraception or six months for women 35 and older.
You may be struggling to conceive for many reasons, such as irregularities in your menstrual cycle or a structural problem that affects your fallopian tubes or uterus.
Though women feel much of the guilt when it comes to not being able to conceive a child, the cause is equally divided between both sexes. In one-third of cases, men are the source of infertility, in one-third women are the cause, and in one-third, the cause includes both partners.
An infertility evaluation at All Care For Women includes exams and tests to try and find the cause of your infertility. If a cause is found, the team then provides treatments. Even if an underlying cause isn’t identified, the team may be able to successfully treat your infertility.
In addition to your inability to conceive, the women’s health experts at All Care For Women also recommend you schedule an infertility evaluation if you have an irregular menstrual cycle or it’s known that you or your partner have a fertility problem.
Infertility evaluations at All Care For Women require a few visits to the office. During your first visit, your provider asks detailed questions about your medical and gynecological history and performs a physical exam.
In addition to your medical history, the team at All Care For Women may also ask you and your male partner to provide details about:
The team also requests diagnostic tests, which may include lab tests and diagnostic imaging, to further evaluate your health. The team may also perform a laparoscopy, which is a minimally invasive procedure, to further evaluate your reproductive organs.
After your infertility evaluation, the team at All Care For Women works with you to develop a plan to improve your chances of conception.
Your plan may include monitoring your ovulation, medication to increase ovulation, or procedures such as artificial insemination or in vitro fertilization.
