fertility is defined as the inability to:
Several factors affect fertility and consequently the ability to conceive. Because of that, we make it a point to carry out a thorough analysis to uncover the cause of your infertility when you visit our clinic.
Causes of Female Infertility
For pregnancy to occur, your ovaries must release an egg that will then travel to your fallopian tube to merge with the sperm. It is then that fertilization occurs and the egg attaches itself to your uterus’ inner lining.
It can be hard to get pregnant if there are any issues or abnormalities with any of the organs involved in this process.
Some of the reasons why you may be experiencing infertility include:
Pelvic inflammatory disease
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID): PID is an infection of the female reproductive organs, including the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries, which can cause severe pain, fever, and can lead to infertility if left untreated.
Blocked fallopian tubes
Blocked Fallopian Tubes: Fallopian tube blockage is a common cause of infertility. It can be caused by pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, or previous surgery.
Uterine Abnormalities: Uterine abnormalities refer to any structural variations in the shape, size or position of the uterus that can affect a woman's ability to conceive or carry a pregnancy to term.
Uterine Fibroids: Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths that develop in the uterus, they can cause heavy bleeding, pain and pressure, and can also lead to infertility.
Endometriosis: Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside of it, it can cause severe pain, heavy bleeding and can also lead to infertility.
In rare occasions, infertility may be linked to the shape, size, or movement of sperm.
Regardless of the underlying issue or concern, you can be sure that at our Newport Beach OBGYN practice, you will get all the support and care you need to increase your chances of conceiving.
If you have been trying to get pregnant for over a year unsuccessfully, we have just the right tools and expertise to help you get to the root of the problem.
We encourage women who are 35 years of age and over to test their fertility if conception has not occurred after six months of trying.
Our OB-GYN will determine the fertility tests you need to take after discussing medication, sexual history, and overall health.
Blood hormone level tests are used to determine the levels of key hormones in your blood. This helps us determine whether your body is producing enough or too much of a particular hormone.
Hormones are chemicals produced by glands in your body. They’re released into the bloodstream and travel to target organs, where they control different functions.
At our facility, we do this test to find out whether your hormones are hindering your ability to conceive.
Minimally invasive Tests
Minimally invasive tests may be used for any kind of medical test, but they’re particularly useful for diagnosing conditions that can’t be seen by looking at the outside of your body.
For example, a 3D ultrasound scan can show what’s happening inside your body without having to cut open your skin or put you under general anesthesia.
We carry out such procedures both in outpatient and in-office settings.
Ovulation tests can help you determine when you’re ovulating – and, therefore, determine the most fertile time of your cycle.
They may not be as accurate as other methods of birth control, but they can be useful for women who have irregular periods or who want to time their sexual encounters to increase their chances of getting pregnant.
This test detects the surge in luteinizing hormone (LH) that occurs just before an egg is released during ovulation. The LH surge makes it easier for sperm to reach the egg and fertilize it.
Ultrasounds and Sonograms
Medical ultrasound comprises various diagnostic imaging techniques that use high-frequency sound waves to create an image of the body’s internal organs and tissues.
With our cutting-edge 4D ultrasound technology, we get to check your reproductive organs for things like ovarian cysts and fibroids.
Ovarian Reserve Testing
Ovarian reserve testing is a way to predict how many eggs you have left in your ovaries.
It can help you and your doctor decide on the best time to try to conceive, whether that’s right now or later down the road.
