DEFINITION OF INFERTILITY

If a couple has been trying to achieve pregnancy for over 1 year it is time to consult our specialists who exclusively treat couples with infertility. Since infertility can be age related, patients 35 years of age and older should see us after failure to conceive for 6 months.

CAUSES OF INFERTILITY

Failure to ovulate (release an egg from the ovary)
Insufficient sperm
Blocked tubes
Endometriosis – a condition that occurs when the lining of the womb, called endometrium, is present on the ovaries or the tubes
Abnormal mucus on the cervix (mouth of the womb)
Uterine fibroids
Pelvic adhesions (scar tissue) which may prevent sperm from getting to the eggs
Poor development of the uterine (womb’s) lining
Irregular menstrual cycles
Previous tubal ligation
