Fertility & Infertility Q&A

What are the most common causes of infertility?

Infertility issues can develop for many reasons, and they can occur in both men and women. Some of the most common medical causes include:

  • hormonal imbalances and hormone-related conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

  • structural issues with the uterus

  • problems with the ovaries that prevent eggs from being released properly

  • uterine fibroids

  • polyps or cysts

  • endometriosis

  • adhesions or scar tissue

  • genetic issues

Other issues include obesity, advanced maternal age, carrying twins or other multiples and certain medical treatments including chemotherapy. For men, infertility typically results from sperm-related issues, including low sperm counts, poor motility or abnormal structure of the sperm.

What are the indicators of infertility?

Generally speaking, if you've been trying to get pregnant for a year (or six months if you're over 35) with no success, it's time to seek advice and possible treatment from an experienced fertility specialist. If you have risk factors for infertility, like PCOS, fibroids or other issues that can increase your chances of infertility, you should also see a doctor to learn how to increase your chances of becoming pregnant.

How will Dr. Bruksch decide what's causing my fertility problems?

Dr. Bruksch uses state-of-the-art testing techniques including diagnostic imaging, blood tests and semen analysis, to evaluate the causes of infertility and help guide treatment.

How is infertility treated?

Many types of infertility affecting the female partner can be treated with hormones to help promote a normal ovulatory cycle and ensure the uterus is optimized for implantation and pregnancy. When hormone treatments don't work, more advanced approaches like in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intrauterine insemination (IUI) may be used to help increase the likelihood of becoming pregnant.
