Infertility Q & A

What Defines Infertility?

According to the American Pregnancy Association, infertility affects between 10 to 15 percent of couples in the U.S. A clinical diagnosis of infertility is given when couples have been trying to conceive unsuccessfully for at least one year.

Women over 35 often have problems conceiving but may not be diagnosed with infertility because of their age. For most women, fertility rates peak in their 20s and start declining in their 30s as production of eggs decreases and ovaries do not respond as well to hormones as they once did.

Why Does Infertility Occur?

Ovulation disorders account for the majority of infertility problems. Other reasons that make it difficult for women to conceive include blocked fallopian tubes (usually due to pelvic inflammatory disease), endometriosis, uterine fibroids and congenital anomalies resulting from a malformed uterus. Absent or irregular menstrual periods are also common signs that a hormonal imbalance may be causing ovulation problems

Polycystic ovarian syndrome is another treatable hormone imbalance condition that interferes with the ovulation process. Additionally, stress, obesity, smoking, heavy alcohol use, excessive exercising and poor diet are other factors known to contribute to infertility issues.

How Does Dr. Bhadauria Treat Infertility in Women?

Depending on the reason for infertility, Dr. Bhadauria will intiate the appropriate treatment plan to correct health problems affecting women who want to conceive. For example, medications such as Clomiphene stimulate ovulation so that healthy eggs are produced by the ovaries. If Dr. Bhadauria discovers that infertility is not caused by hormonal imbalances but with fallopian tube complications, she may recommend minimally invasive surgery to remove blockages or repair tubes affected by endometriosis.
