One such topic of concern to many women is infertility, so our esteemed doctor is here to address at least five of the causes of infertility.

5 Leading Causes for Infertility in Women

Our doctor at Williams Ob/Gyn & Associates in San Dimas, CA, must first look at the definition of infertility, which carries the following characteristics.

  • Inability to conceive after one year of unprotected sex
  • Failure to conceive after six months if the woman is over 35 years
  • Inability to sustain a pregnancy

Know that one-third of all infertility originates in the man and is related to low sperm count, sperm damage, varicocele, smoking, alcohol, drugs, obesity, untreated STD, some medications, or medical treatments. These all can affect infertility in women.

Infertility in women carries a few of the same reasons as men. 

  • Ovary problems
  • Uterus issues
  • Women who are underweight or obese
  • Over 35 years old
  • Alcohol and drug use

If you yearn to start a family but have been facing signs of infertility, you must begin at the beginning and take a look at your lifestyle. It would be best to recognize the possible reasons you cannot conceive. There are five common reasons this may happen. You and our doctor must determine if these barriers exist in your life.

Our doctor treats each woman with the courtesy, compassion, and respect they deserve. Our doctor bases treatments for infertility on unique and individualized health issues. Our doctor must first do an essential screening that includes the following, resulting in unique and individualized treatment options. 

  • Physical exam
  • Sperm studies
  • Ovulation testing
  • Ultrasounds

The basic foundation for testing includes increasing sexual activity, medication, or surgery depending on the woman's health and the issues at hand. Everyone is different and unique, and no one person reacts the same to treatment options. You will be pleased to find that there are an array of ways to help treat infertility, and each treatment option is unique to your situation.
