Infertility Q & A

What is infertility?

If you’ve tried to get pregnant for over a year without success, you may have fertility problems. Infertility is an emotionally painful condition, but you don’t have to give up on becoming a mother. Visit Advanced Women’s Health Specialists to learn the cause of your infertility and find out about your treatment options.

What causes infertility?

There are many conditions that may cause infertility, including hormonal imbalances, structural problems in your reproductive system, and any of the following conditions:  


  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine abnormalities
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Hypothalamic dysfunction
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Primary ovarian insufficiency
  • Hyperprolactinemia

Infertility can also occur when there’s no known cause, which is extremely frustrating and heartbreaking to most women. Fertility treatment may still help you conceive if you have infertility without a known cause. Your doctor helps you evaluate possible fertility treatments and provides ongoing support throughout your treatment process.

What are the treatment options for infertility?

Treatment options for infertility vary depending on the cause of infertility, what you’ve already tried, and your overall health. When infertility is caused by a hormonal imbalance, medication may help you conceive and may be needed throughout the duration of your pregnancy. If tissue from endometriosis blocks your uterus or fallopian tubes, your doctor may perform surgery to remove the tissue and increase your chances of conceiving. 

Regardless of the cause of your infertility, Advanced Women’s Health Specialists helps you choose the right treatment to increase the likelihood for pregnancy. In some cases, your partner may need testing and treatment for male infertility conditions.

What happens if I still can’t get pregnant?

If you’ve tried all of the suggested lifestyle changes and still struggle to conceive after infertility treatment, your doctor helps you determine the next step. Most women successfully conceive after receiving infertility treatment, but it’s not guaranteed.

You may consider assisted reproductive technology, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF). Advanced Women’s Health Specialists offers information to help you determine if IVF is the right choice for you and your partner.
