Infertility is a medical condition of the reproductive system that can prevent conception. When you and your partner decide you are ready to start a family, encountering fertility issues can be devastating. At New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine Fertility Clinic in Virginia Beach VA, we understand that infertility is not only medical, but causes emotional distress that can be difficult to resolve without help. Our experienced doctors proudly offer comprehensive fertility treatments in a compassionate and welcoming fertility clinic environment where your needs and concerns will be fully and personally addressed by an expert in fertility medicine.
When should I seek infertility help?
For many couples, conceiving a child may take longer than initially expected. However, infertility refers specifically to the inability to become pregnant after a year of attempting. For women 35 years old or more, the amount of time is 6 months. If you find that you have been trying to get pregnant for this amount of time or longer without success, it may be time to reach out to a fertility doctor who can offer the insight and experience you need to decide on a reproductive treatment plan that can help.
How common is infertility?
Encountering difficulty during the conception process can feel very isolating. Couples and individuals often feel as though the inability to conceive is their fault. It is critical to remember that you are not alone. The doctors at New Hope Center offer the incredible support and understanding you need to make the most of your treatments. Nearly 10% of all women seeking to achieve pregnancy have difficulty conceiving or staying pregnant, and approximately one-third of reported fertility problems are the result of male infertility. That means that millions of women and men each year deal with the emotional and physical stress of infertility.
What causes infertility?
Infertility can result from a number of different factors and it is always important to remember that your inability to conceive is not your fault and there are treatments available to help you build your family. Female fertility is often the result of ovulation problems, but it can also result from uterine fibroids, blocked fallopian tubes, or physical issues with the uterus. Male infertility is most often a result of varicocele or problems with the sperm including injuries to the testicles or other medical conditions such as cystic fibrosis. No matter what the cause of your fertility problems, the doctors at New Hope Center can help you explore options for overcoming infertility and conceiving a healthy baby.
How do you diagnose infertility?
At New Hope Center, we perform fertility testing on-site. This includes hysterosalpingography and laparoscopy to assess the overall health of a woman’s reproductive system including the uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. Semen analysis, scrotal ultrasound, hormone and genetic testing may all be used to help diagnose infertility in men. Your reproductive specialist will help you decide which diagnostic tests are most important for your situation. Once we better understand your body and how well it functions, we can begin discussing treatment options and develop a comprehensive plan for helping you to finally conceive.
