Understanding Women’s Infertility

Fertility consultations are typically recommended if a woman under the age of 35 has not become pregnant after 12 months of unprotected intercourse. Women over the age of 35 should seek answers after six months. For insurance purposes, some states define infertility as two years of failed attempts at pregnancy in women under 35.

However, sometimes these recommendations just don’t matter because you already know or suspect that a problem exists. Fertility Partnership works with you to understand the causes and find solutions to women’s infertility.

Male Infertility

Male infertility can account for as much as 30% of the couples who seek fertility treatments. In fact, six percent of men meet the criteria of “low sperm count”-otherwise known as oligospermia. Nearly one percent of men will be found to have no sperm in their semen.

The causes of male infertility are numerous and varied, but can be roughly divided into issues involving production of sperm and issues associated with transport. Fertility specialists can often get around the difficulty by using advanced reproductive technology.

Secondary Infertility

Secondary infertility occurs when a couple struggles to become pregnant after a previous successful pregnancy. Approximately three million people in the United States are battling secondary infertility, and it can be even more frustrating than never having had a child.

Fertility Partnership will review your medical history and other factors in order to help achieve a healthy pregnancy and expand your family.
