Infertility is defined as the inability to get pregnant after one year of unprotected sex. If you are over the age of 35, it is defined as the inability to get pregnant after six months of unprotected sex. There are many factors that can contribute to infertility, including: Age, Medical history, Lifestyle choices, Hormone levels.
While there are many things that can contribute to infertility, there are also many treatments available. Dr. Alshahrour can help you explore your options and find a treatment plan that is right for you.
According to the National Infertility Association, approximately 10% of women in the United States areaffected by infertility. This figure includes both primary infertility, which is defined as the inability to conceive after one year of unprotected sex, and secondary infertility, which is defined as the inability to conceive after previously giving birth. While the cause of infertility can often be traced to a single factor, such as endometriosis or low sperm count, in many cases it is the result of a combination of factors. The good news is that there are a variety of treatments available for couples who are struggling to conceive, and with the help of modern medicine, many couples are able to have the families they always wanted.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 12% of women in the United States have difficulty getting pregnant or carrying a pregnancy to term.
Infertility is a problem that affects millions of couples worldwide. There are many reasons why a couple may be unable to conceive, but there are also many ways to overcome infertility. One of the most common methods is in vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF involves retrieving eggs from the woman’s ovaries and fertilizing them with sperm in a laboratory dish. The resulting embryos are then implanted into the woman’s uterus. IVF has a high success rate, and it can be used to treat a wide range of fertility problems. Another popular method is intrauterine insemination (IUI), which involves placing sperm directly into the woman’s uterus. IUI can be used with or without fertility drugs, and it often has a higher success rate than intercourse alone. These are just two of the many options available to couples who are struggling to conceive. With the help of modern medicine, almost any couple can overcome infertility and have a child of their own.
