If you and your partner are struggling to have a baby, you are not alone.
Infertility is defined as not being able to get pregnant despite trying for at least a year for most couples. It may result from an issue with either you or your partner, or a combination of factors that prevent pregnancy.
If you’re having trouble getting pregnant, our doctor will help you figure out why, and will work with you to find a treatment that can help. We offer a comprehensive and innovative range of infertility treatment solutions.
There are a number of factors that may be keeping you from getting pregnant:
- Damage or blockage of your fallopian tubes
- Hormonal problems
- Ovulation disorders
- Uterine or cervical abnormalities
- Early menopause
- Pelvic adhesions
- Cancer and its treatment
