Infertility Q & A
What is infertility?
Doctors define infertility as failing to get pregnant after a year of trying to conceive. Over age 35, the standard is just six months of trying to get pregnant.
When a woman is not getting pregnant, the reasons can be complicated. Both male and female partners may contribute to infertility.
Medical science generally believes that female-related factors are responsible for about one-third of infertility issues. Male issues account for another third of cases. In the rest of cases, infertility is typically due to a mix of both male and female factors or to unknown causes.
What causes female infertility?
Female infertility is most commonly caused by issues with ovulation, such as ovulating irregularly or not at all. Other female factors include:
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
- Structural blockages or abnormalities
However, medical advances today can address many of these issues. You can count on Dr. Davda to help you find the underlying causes, or causes, for why you're not getting pregnant.
How do I find out what is causing infertility?
Dr. Davda typically begins by taking a detailed medical history. She asks about your periods, abnormal uterine bleeding, and a history of past pregnancies or miscarriages. She then provides a comprehensive infertility evaluation.
This assessment may include blood work to check your hormone levels and diagnostic tests. She often performs an ultrasound to determine whether structural issues may play a role. Once she has pinpointed the cause or causes, she recommends an appropriate treatment plan to address the reason you're having trouble getting pregnant.
What are my treatment options for infertility?
Once she knows what’s causing infertility, Dr. Davda recommends one or more treatments to help you achieve a successful pregnancy. She may suggest medications to help you ovulate regularly or to correct a hormonal issue. In some cases, you may need a procedure to remove a growth that's affecting your fertility.
In 85-90% of cases of infertility, medication or a procedure is enough to help a couple get pregnant.
