Fertility Treatments

The causes of infertility are diverse and may include genetic, physiological, and environmental factors. We provide appropriate medical advice, and care to address these causes and, if possible, achieve a healthy pregnancy.

What Are The Causes Of Infertility? 

Infertility is a complex issue that can have a variety of causes. Understanding the underlying causes of infertility is an important step in providing effective treatments and improving the chances of conception.


As women age, the quantity and quality of the eggs they produce decrease, increasing the chances of infertility. Female fertility reaches its highest potential in the twenties and begins to decline in the thirties, decreasing significantly after the age of 35.


Being overweight could affect ovulation and increase the risk of diseases such as diabetes and hypertension. Women who are overweight or obese may have higher estrogen levels, which can interfere with the ovulation process and decrease egg quality.

Blocked Fallopian Tubes

Blocked fallopian tubes prevent the passage of the egg to the uterus and, therefore, fertilization. The causes of the obstruction can be diverse, from a previous infection to endometriosis, a previous abdominal surgery, and other reasons.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormonal disorder in women of reproductive age. PCOS can affect ovulation and increase levels of male hormones, which can decrease egg quality and make conception difficult.

Previous Infections

Sexually transmitted infections, such as chlamydia or gonorrhea, can cause pelvic inflammation and scarring, which can lead to infertility.


​​Endometriosis is a disorder in which tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside the uterus, in the ovaries, fallopian tubes, or other nearby organs. It can cause abdominal pain, menstrual irregularities, and difficulty conceiving. Some women don’t experience any symptoms and only learn they have the condition when they try to get pregnant. For other women, they are very aware of heavy painful periods that seriously impact their everyday life.

The cause of Endometriosis is unknown. However, there are treatments to help manage the symptoms, and most importantly, to help you conceive.

Uterine Fibroids

Uterine fibroids are benign tumors that grow in the uterus. The fibroids could be asymptomatic or could cause pelvic pain, heavy menstrual bleeding, and fertility problems.

Hormonal Disorders

Hormonal imbalances can affect female fertility. Hypothyroidism, hyperprolactinemia, and other hormonal disorders can affect ovulation and decrease egg quality.

This ultra-rapid freezing technique preserves eggs with a higher survival rate than other fertility preservation techniques.

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that dealing with infertility can be a challenging and emotional experience. This is why we have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions about fertility treatments to help you better understand your options.

What is in vitro fertilization (IVF), and how does it work to help couples and individuals conceive?

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a fertility treatment involving fertilizing an egg with sperm outside the body. The process begins by stimulating the ovaries to produce multiple eggs, which are then retrieved and fertilized in a laboratory. The resulting embryos are monitored, and once they reach a certain stage of development, one or more are transferred to the uterus. IVF helps couples and individuals overcome various fertility challenges, such as blocked fallopian tubes, low sperm count, or advanced maternal age.

How does IVF with donor eggs differ from traditional IVF, and who is it suitable for?

IVF with donor eggs is a variant of IVF that involves using donated eggs from a carefully selected egg donor and FDA compliant donor. This treatment option is suitable for individuals or couples who cannot produce viable eggs or have a higher risk of passing on genetic disorders. Donor eggs are fertilized with the partner's or donor's sperm, and the resulting embryos are transferred to the recipient's uterus. IVF with donor eggs provides an opportunity for those who otherwise cannot conceive using their eggs.
