Whether you have been trying to get pregnant for some time or you are just starting out, know that you are not alone. We meet with patients every day who face issues with successfully conceiving. Our team at MCRH is here to guide patients through the process of consultation, discovery, and appropriate treatment.
It is important to remember that while you are not alone, you are unique. Every patient and every situation is unique. There are several factors that contribute to female infertility. While self-diagnosis is not recommended, we do support self-health awareness and education.
Below we have provided health conditions that often contribute to female infertility. It is our hope that you call to schedule a consultation with our care team if you have concerns about your fertility health or are having difficulty conceiving.
One of the things we have learned from results of testing patients for common genetic disorders is that none of us are “perfect”, from a genetic point of view. There are times when the testing results in an awareness of a combination of abnormal genes which poses a risk to the unborn child. Our team can often collaborate with a geneticist to determine the risk of passing these abnormal genes to your child, and we can then review options which exist to address these problems, either by using donor sperm or donor eggs, or by performing in vitro fertilization with preimplantation genetic screening/diagnosis.
Patients living with certain hereditary disorders may choose to consider treatment options that would eliminate passing on a genetic disorder to their children.
