The Dallas IVF clinicians understand how frustrating and heartbreaking it can be for patients to struggle for months to get pregnant, only to see another negative pregnancy test. Our Dallas fertility center specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of the complex causes of female infertility. We will work with you to help make your dream of motherhood become a reality.
It’s important to know when to visit a fertility specialist for help with female infertility
Our Dallas fertility center physicians often tell women that there’s no need to worry after one or two negative pregnancy tests. Most women do not get pregnant right away, but most couples will conceive after a few months if they maintain a healthy lifestyle and timed intercourse.
However, one in seven American couples will struggle with infertility at some point. Luckily, a fertility specialist, like the ones at our Dallas fertility center, can help. If you’re wondering when you should see a fertility specialist, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine has some guidelines to help.
- Women under the age of 35 should visit a fertility specialist after trying to get pregnant for one year.
- Women over the age of 35 should make an appointment with a fertility specialist after trying to get pregnant for six months.
If you have a history of painful or irregular periods, pelvic disease or uterine fibroids or polyps, our Dallas fertility center recommends scheduling a consultation and fertility evaluation when you want to start trying to conceive. We believe that a proactive approach to fertility is best.
Fertility testing can help you and your physician determine the cause of your infertility
At our Dallas fertility center, female infertility testing starts with a simple conversation about your medical history. Then, we will schedule fertility blood tests and non-surgical diagnostic studies including a pelvic sonogram and possibly a hysterosalpingogram, HSG, to determine if tubal patency is present. In some cases, your physician may recommend minimally invasive fertility surgery to treat problems such as fibroids, polyps and tubal issues.
During this time, our Dallas fertility center clinicians will also order a semen analysis to rule out male factor infertility in your partner.
The most important point for patients to realize is that most cases of female infertility will resolve with intrauterine insemination or ovulation induction, with no need for more advanced assisted reproductive technology. Regardless of the cause of your infertility, the physicians at our Dallas fertility center are eager and prepared to help you.
