What is infertility?

The inability to get pregnant after 12 months of trying is known as infertility. While some couples may conceive in the second year of trying, most couples are able to conceive within the first year of trying. If you are unable to become pregnant after a year, your doctor can provide you with treatment solutions or alternatives towards starting your family.

How do I know when to see a doctor about infertility?

Generally, if you are unable to become pregnant after 12 months, you should set up an appointment with your doctor. You may also want to see a doctor earlier, if:

What are the causes of female infertility?

Various factors or conditions may cause infertility in women. Reasons for infertility may include:

  • Age
  • Ovulation disorder
  • Blocked fallopian tubes
  • History of sexually transmitted diseases
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometrial polyps
  • Endometriosis
  • Your male partner

In some cases, infertility may be considered unexplained, meaning there is no clear cause.

How do I know if I am an infertile female?

Along with not being able to become pregnant after 12 months of trying, other signs and symptoms of infertility in women may include:

  • Heavier or lighter than usual periods
  • Varied timing from one period to the next
  • Absence of a period
  • A period that stops abruptly
  • Pain during period
  • Skin changes
  • Change in sex drive
  • Hair growth on lips, chest, or chin
  • Weight gain
  • White discharge from nipples
  • Pain during sex

How do doctors test for infertility?

If you have not become pregnant after 12 months of trying, it is important to see a doctor to learn about possible causes, next steps, and your treatment options. To help determine the cause of your infertility, your doctor will start by asking you questions about your medical and sexual history, as well as performing a physical. Additional procedures and tests may include:

  • Laboratory testing
  • Transvaginal ultrasound
  • Semen analysis from your male partner
  • Ovulation testing
  • Hysterosalpingography
  • Ovarian reserve testing
  • Hysteroscopy
  • Laparoscopy
  • Genetic testing

What are my treatment options?

If you think infertility means your hopes of starting or expanding your family have come to a halt, it does not. Infertility is not always permanent, and ceratin treatments may be able to help resolve infertility. Even in cases of permanent infertility, there are alternative routes for you to have children. Treatment options for infertility include:

  • Medications to stimulate eggs and ovulation
  • Insemination
  • In vitro fertilization (IVF)
  • Surgery
  • Sperm donation
  • Egg donation
  • Embryo donation
  • Surrogate

What is IVF?

IVF stands for in vitro fertilization. With IVF, fertilization takes place in a test tube and the 3-5 day old embryo is implanted directly into the mother’s uterus.
