What is infertility awareness?
The physicians at our DFW fertility center strive to raise infertility awareness every day by providing men and women with information about infertility and its treatments. Because an informed patient is an empowered patient, our fertility specialists offer the information you need to be proactive about your reproductive health.
Understanding the basics as part of infertility awareness
Infertility awareness starts with learning the basics. Infertility isn’t a popular topic of discussion, so you might not realize how common it is. In fact, it affects 1 in 8 couples. Most people believe that infertility is just a female problem, but male factor infertility affects as many as 50% of couples who are struggling to conceive.
In addition to understanding the statistics, our DFW fertility center wants you to know when to seek treatment for infertility.
- If you are younger than 35 and have been unable to conceive after one year, it’s time to make an appointment with a fertility specialist.
- Because time is of the essence, you should make an appointment after six months of trying if you are 35 or older.
- If you know of a medical condition that could affect the fertility of you or your partner, you should see a fertility specialist as soon as you start thinking about conceiving.
Deepen your infertility awareness with knowledge of fertility testing and treatment
Our experienced fertility specialists offer diagnostic testing to help you and your partner understand your fertility and discover whether you may face any roadblocks to pregnancy. Our DFW fertility center offers both female and male fertility testing to provide the clearest picture.
Utilizing the information gathered during your diagnostic testing, your physician will work with you to design the most-effective and affordable fertility treatment plan for you. Your fertility specialist may prescribe medications for ovulation induction and recommend timed intercourse. In other cases, your physician may suggest moving directly to IVF with preimplantation genetic screening to help you conceive faster.
