Infertility Q & A

Women's and Maternity Care Specialists

What causes infertility in women?

Your reproductive system is incredibly sensitive, so even the smallest issue can make it very difficult to conceive. Infertility can stem from:

  • Endometriosis
  • Ovulation disorders
  • Damage to the fallopian tubes
  • Polyps or an abnormal uterus
  • Early menopause: Before age 40
  • Scar tissue in your pelvis
  • Amenorrhea: Lack of periods
  • An undiagnosed medical condition
  • Cancer

How is infertility diagnosed?

Dr. K will start with a gynecological exam. From there, he can order multiple tests to help diagnose infertility. These tests may include:

  • Ovulation testing: Blood test
  • Hormone testing
  • Pelvic ultrasound
  • Hysterosalpingography: Specialized X-ray
  • Genetic testing

Will I need surgery to diagnose or treat infertility?

Some conditions do require surgery to improve the chance of a pregnancy. This is why Dr. K performs minimally invasive laparoscopy with general anesthesia. This surgical technique allows him to use a very small camera to peer into your reproductive organs through a small incision to see if scar tissue, fibroids, endometriosis, or other abnormalities, may be affecting your ability to get pregnant. In many cases, he can correct small issues during the same surgery, so you only have to have one procedure.

Which types of treatments are available?

If Dr. K sees something that he can remove or repair during a laparoscopic procedure, for instance, that might be one option. You may also benefit from fertility drugs. These medications either regulate or induce ovulation, so you know exactly when you’re able to conceive.

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is another treatment option for infertility. During an IUI procedure, Dr. Krishingner strategically places healthy sperm in your uterus around your ovaries. This procedure is conducted during the time of ovulation to increase your chances of conception.

Can I improve my chances of getting pregnant on my own?

Yes. Once you have gone through an evaluation to determine your reproductive health, start paying attention to your ovulation cycle. You should be having sexual intercourse regularly around ovulation. This happens about halfway between your periods. Ideally, you should have intercourse at least 5 days before you ovulate, and daily through the day after you ovulate. Having intercourse during these times of increased fertility will greatly increase your chances of getting pregnant.
