Spring and Fertility – Understanding Your Fertility

The first day of spring is March 20 and new life is everywhere. The flowers are blooming, the trees are sprouting leaves, and baby animals are starting to appear. Spring and fertility just go hand in hand, so it seems like a good time for Dallas IVF to share some fertility facts. Understanding your fertility is easy with help from our DFW fertility clinic.

Understanding your fertility involves learning about infertility

Our DFW fertility clinic team thinks that understanding your fertility also involves learning the basics of infertility. Infertility is the inability to get pregnant after one year of trying (six months of trying for women over the age of 35), or the inability to carry a pregnancy to term.

You aren’t alone if you’ve been diagnosed with infertility. In fact, it’s quite common and treatable.

  • 7.4 million women, or 11.9% of women, will undergo fertility treatments.
  • 1 in 8 couples have trouble conceiving or carrying a pregnancy.
  • One-third of infertility cases can be attributed to the female partner; one-third can be attributed to the male partner; and the remaining one-third are unexplained or a combination of issues in both partners.

Modern fertility treatments open up a new world of possibilities

Our DFW fertility clinic offers a variety of treatments, including ovarian stimulation, intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF). While many patients often hear about IVF, fewer than 3% of patients will need such advanced reproductive technologies. Many times, treatments like ovarian stimulation or even lifestyle changes are enough to help a patient conceive.

If you do require more advanced fertility treatments like IVF or donor eggs, Dallas IVF can help. Our knowledgeable and compassionate fertility specialists have extensive experience using the latest assisted reproductive technologies to help patients become parents.
