Infertility

In the U.S., about 10 percent of women ages 15 - 44, or about 6.1 million women, have difficulty getting pregnant or carrying a baby to term.

Infertility may be caused by an underlying medical condition that damages the fallopian tubes, interferes with ovulation, or causes hormonal complications. These medical conditions include:

Infertility Treatment

Treatment for infertility should first address any underlying medical condition that may be contributing to fertility problems. If this step does not restore fertility, there are several treatment approaches:

  • Lifestyle measures (such as maintaining a healthy weight, quitting smoking, planning sexual activity with ovulation cycle)
  • Drugs to induce ovulation, such as clomiphene and gonadotrophins
  • Robotic evaluation for infertility such as pelvic adhesions or endometriosis
  • Minimally-invasive tubal reanastomosis for previous tubal ligation.
  • Assisted reproductive technologies (ART), such as intrauterine insemination (IUI)
