Infertility

Infertility in the United States affects about 15% of couples. Hamptons Gynecology and Obstetrics can provide an infertility evaluation for couples that are unable to conceive after 12 months of having sex without the use of birth control.

Certain tests may help find the cause of infertility and if a problem is found, there are treatment options available. Those treatments may be lifestyle changes, medication, surgery or assisted reproductive technologies.

The Evaluation:doctor talking with female patient
We evaluate you and your partner. The evaluation may include:

  • Physical exam
  • Medical history
  • Semen analysis
  • Lab work to check for ovulation
  • Tests to assess your female organs (uterus and fallopian tubes)
  • Ovulation charts

Procedures and Treatments:
Some of the procedures that can be done to evaluate a woman's reproductive organs are:

  • Hysterosalpingogram
  • Transvaginal ultrasound
  • Hysteroscopy
  • Laparoscopy

Treatments may include office intrauterine insemination (IUI). Sometimes hormone medications are given to assist ovulation.

Plan:
Your doctor will review all the test results with you and your partner. A treatment plan will be devised so that together we can help you achieve your goal of a healthy pregnancy.

On-site consultation with a reproductive endocrinologist is also available.
