Fertility

If you’re having trouble getting pregnant, you’re not alone. There could be many reasons why you or your partner are having issues. You might have a treatable condition that is making it difficult for you to get pregnant.

Ellen Wilson, M.D., is a member of the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility at UT Southwestern and Medical Director of the Pediatric-Adolescent Gynecology Program at Children’s Medical Center.

Some common reproductive disorders that are treatable include:

Fertility Evaluation

We can evaluate you and your partner to identify any reasons you're having trouble getting pregnant. Once a fertility problem is discovered we can develop an individualized treatment plan based on your condition, medical history, goals, and preferences.

The initial fertility evaluation typically includes:

  • Blood tests to determine whether you are ovulating
  • Evaluation of the ovaries, uterus, and fallopian tubes
  • Semen analysis to evaluate sperm number, motility, and shape.

Fertility Treatments

If the reason you're having trouble conceiving is more complex, we offer many safe and effective fertility treatments, including in vitro fertilization, that can help you get pregnant.
