What is Infertility? | Womens Excellence Symptom Checker

Infertility is a condition of the reproductive system that prevents the conception of children. The diagnosis of infertility is usually given to couples who have been attempting to conceive for at least one year without success. Infertility treatments may help improve the chance of conception.

Overview of Symptoms

  • Abnormal periods
  • Painful periods
  • Hormone imbalance

What happens next?

The first step is contacting Women’s Excellence. We will begin with an in-depth medical history/physical exam and blood work to assess ovarian function and rule out other medical conditions. Semen analysis to detect male factor infertility is also a must. Finally, testing such as hysterosalpingogram (a radiological procedure) or laparoscopy to rule out a structural problem such as tubal occlusion may be necessary.

If there is a problem, there are a wide variety of treatments available for couples facing difficulty achieving pregnancy. Couples should consult with their gynecologist to develop a treatment plan designed to specifically address their fertility concerns.
