Infertility Treatment Q & A
What tests are available to determine my fertility issue?
For a woman to become pregnant, her ovaries must release a healthy egg. This egg then must pass through her fallopian tubes and join with sperm to be fertilized.
Then, the fertilized egg must impact along the lining of her uterus. If any part of the process is impaired, infertility is likely to occur.
There are some tests available at Capital Women's Care that can help the doctors pinpoint your reproductive issues.
The team at Capital Women's Care looks at your hormone levels via a blood test to determine if you are ovulating.
This test looks for blockages in your fallopian tubes and uterus. Your provider will inject a substance into your uterus that shows up on an X-ray, and then look for any abnormalities in the area.
Ovarian reserve testing
Your provider evaluates the eggs you have available in your ovaries. They determine the quantity and quality of eggs you have available.
Thorough hormone testing
Your provider tests for other hormones that play a part in the conception of a child.
Your provider uses ultrasound imaging to look for any disease that could be affecting your uterus or fallopian tubes.
Certain genetic defects could be contributing to your infertility. Doctors have identified them over the years, and your provider tests for them.
Do I need every one of these tests?
Not at all. These are just some of the tests available at Capital Women's Care. Your doctor will chat with you to determine which test is needed and when they are to be performed.
What treatments are available for infertility?
Your treatment for infertility depends on several factors. The team takes into account how old you are, the amount of time you’ve been infertile, as well as your personal preferences.
There are some cases where infertility cannot be treated. However, in other cases, assisted reproductive technology is available.
These methods often include significant physical, time, psychological, and financial commitments. The Capital Women's Care team helps guide you to make the decision that is best for you.
This method is commonly used if you are suffering from an ovulation disorder. These medications help regulate or induce ovulation.
Also known as, IUI, healthy sperm is injected directly into the uterus when you release one or more eggs. This method is often used with fertility drugs.
Infertility can be the cause of uterine septum, intrauterine scar tissue, or endometrial polyps. Surgery can help correct these issues.
In vitro fertilization
Also known as IVF, a woman’s egg is fertilized using sperm in a lab. The fertilized egg is then implanted into a woman’s uterus 3-5 days after fertilization.
