Becoming pregnant can be a complex process. The processes of ovulation and fertilization need to work just right.
For some couples attempting pregnancy, something goes wrong along the way, resulting in infertility. The cause of infertility can involve one or both partners. Infertility is defined as a lack of conception despite unprotected intercourse for at 12 months.
Treatment of infertility depends on the cause, how long you’ve been trying for pregnancy, your age, your partners’ age, and many other personal preferences. Some causes of infertility cannot be corrected. However, many women can still become pregnant with assisted reproductive technology or other procedures to restore fertility.
Evaluation is an important step in beginning the treatment of infertility. Testing for the couple will depend upon the individual’s history, assessment of ovarian function, cervical factors, sperm count, and tubal patency.
Infertility has a profound emotional, psychological and economic impact on the affected couple. It is our goal at Stark Women’s Center in Canton, Ohio to provide a comprehensive and sensitive approach, so that the couple may be successful in achieving pregnancy.
