Perhaps nothing is more desired than that which seems out of reach. The holiday season often brings feelings of loss or the inability to conceive to the forefront. Infertility is an extremely personal issue that many women throughout the U.S. face each year. While it does not feel like a common issue for women who experience infertility, this issue is dealt with regularly by obstetricians and gynecologists. The entire medical team at Marietta OB-GYN Affiliates, P.A. is proud to provide safe and effective treatment for infertility.
Infertility is typically not diagnosed as an issue until a woman has been unsuccessful at conceiving or carrying a pregnancy to term after 12 straight months of actively trying to conceive. Infertility may be caused by a variety of problems that include:
- Blocked fallopian tube(s)
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
- Being overweight or underweight
It is always essential to understand that women should not carry all of the burdens for infertility. Male infertility is as common as female infertility, and both the man and woman in a relationship where children are desired should see a specialist. Men can visit a urologist who can discuss any sex issues, perform a physical exam, and do a sperm and semen analysis.
For women who seek treatment for infertility, there are different options. From least to most invasive, these treatments include: fertility drugs, surgery, Intrauterine Insemination, In vitro fertilization, and other options.
At Marietta OB-GYN Affiliates, P.A., we offer the most sensitive and compassionate treatment for women facing infertility. Our practice is committed to providing excellent medical care to help you achieve your goal of a healthy pregnancy. We look forward to serving you.
