Infertility Q & A

Dedicated Women's Health Specialists

What Are the Causes of Infertility?

Infertility is traditionally defined as no pregnancy after trying for a year.  About 10% of couples experience infertility.  Several different factors can impact infertility including:

  •  Male factor- Approximately 40% of the time, infertility is due to a male factor.  This can include low sperm count, abnormally shaped sperm, abnormal sperm motility, and abnormal function leading inability to fertilize an egg.    
  •  Blocked or damaged fallopian tubes from a prior infection.
  • Anovulation- Egg does not develop normally or not released from the ovary.
  • Cervical mucus that is hostile to sperm.
  • Approximately 40% of the time, infertility is due to a female factor.
  • Approximately 20% of the time, infertility is due to combined factors meaning both male and female problems are involved.  

What Evaluations Are Done to Evaluate Infertility?

  • Basic history and physical examination of both partners are taken.
  • Sometimes, blood tests may be ordered.
  • Semen analysis (sperm count) in men.
  • X-ray test to determine if the tubes are damaged.

What Treatments Are Used for Infertility?

Treatment for infertility will depend on the specific cause.  If there is abnormality on semen analysis, the male partner may be referred to a urologist to undergo further evaluation and treatment.  If the problem is due to lack of ovulation, induction of ovulation may be attempted.  In the case of tubal damage, surgery can sometimes help restore fertility.  In many patients, we are not able to identify the specific cause of infertility.  Sometimes, we will refer our patients to a specialized fertility center if assisted reproductive technology must be considered such as in vitro fertilization.
