Infertility Q & A

When is infertility diagnosed?

Infertility describes the inability to get pregnant or difficulty carrying a pregnancy to term. Infertility is diagnosed in couples in which the woman is younger than 35 and who have been actively trying to get pregnant for 12 months without success. If you are 35 or older, infertility tests and interventions may begin after six months of actively trying to get pregnant.

The staff at Poplar Avenue Clinic understand how devastating and frustrating a diagnosis of infertility can be and do everything possible to help you conceive.

Is infertility always the woman’s problem?

Infertility is not just a “woman’s” problem. While issues with female reproductive organs or ovulation may be the cause in about one-third of cases, another third of cases of infertility are due to issues related to the male in the relationship. The remaining third of infertility cases are unexplained or due to a combination of male and female issues.

At Poplar Avenue Clinic, the team runs tests and evaluations of both partners to better understand the reason for the troubles conceiving and to recommend a solution.

What types of issues cause infertility?

A common cause of female infertility is having an ovulation disorder like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Blocked fallopian tubes and endometriosis are other common causes of infertility.

Men may experience infertility due to abnormalities in their sperm or low sperm counts. Genetic disorders may also be responsible for male infertility in some cases.

What treatments are available for infertility?

Your infertility treatment depends, of course, on the determined cause. Before starting infertility treatment, the team at Poplar Avenue Clinic goes over all of your options, your likelihood of becoming pregnant, and the strategies involved.

A first step may be lifestyle changes, such as losing weight if you’re overweight, stopping the use of tobacco and drugs, and reducing stress.

Treatments may also include medications to stimulate ovulation and artificial insemination. If you need specialized treatment from an infertility specialist, Poplar Avenue Clinic staff can refer you to a trusted provider.
