Fertility: Evaluation and Treatments
We understand the concern and frustration involved when you're having trouble getting pregnant. Fortunately, many conditions that make getting pregnant a challenge are treatable, and there are many effective and safe procedures available to help you get pregnant.
What is Infertility?
Infertility is usually defined as the inability to conceive after a year of trying, but some couples may benefit from seeking help sooner.
If you're over age 35 and haven’t conceived after six months, talk to your doctor about a fertility evaluation. Women who may need earlier medical intervention include those who have had pelvic infections, previous tubal pregnancies, surgery, radiation to the pelvic area, or chemotherapy.
Due to the complexities of fertility issues, we offer a comprehensive range of evaluation and treatment options for women and men.
- Genetic testing
- Hormonal testing (to monitor ovulation)
- Hysterosalpingogram (evaluation of the uterus and fallopian tubes using imaging technology)
- Hysterosonography (saline-infusion sonography)
- Laparoscopy (for diagnosis and treatment of reproductive disorders)
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Sonography (ultrasound test of the pelvic organs)
- Complete semen analysis
- Genetic testing
- Hormonal testing
- Referral to a urologist as indicated
- Sperm banking for fertility preservation in men about to undergo chemotherapy or radiation therapy that may affect their future fertility
We offer specialized infertility counseling services to support you during the evaluation and treatment process.
