Wittgrove and Brown: San Diego ObGyn

What are the primary causes of infertility?

Infertility can be caused by many issues that affect both men and women. Among women, some of the most common causes include:

  • structural problems with the uterus, fallopian tubes or ovaries

  • medical issues that affect the production and release of eggs (ova)

  • excessive mucus in the cervix that makes it difficult for sperm to reach the uterus

  • scars (adhesions), polyps or fibroids

  • endometriosis, which causes the growth of uterine tissue to occur outside the uterus

  • older age

  • genetic issues

  • cancer treatment

Male fertility problems are usually associated with the number or concentration of sperm present in semen, sperm motility or structural problems with the sperm.

What is involved in a basic fertility workup?

Your workup will begin with a discussion of your infertility symptoms, including how long you've been trying to become pregnant with no success and any other symptoms you may be experiencing. Depending on that information, tests and evaluations will be ordered to determine the underlying cause of your infertility problems. These tests and evaluations can include blood work, sperm tests, pelvic exams and minimally-invasive techniques used to evaluate the fallopian tubes and uterus. Imaging tests like ultrasound or CT scans may also be ordered.

What kinds of treatments can help people facing infertility issues?

Many medical issues, including medical conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), can be treated successfully with hormone replacement therapy. Issues affecting the structure of the uterus, ovaries or fallopian or medical conditions like large fibroids, adhesions or endometriosis may need minimally-invasive surgical procedures to correct. In some cases, intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF) techniques may be necessary. Your specific treatment plan will be determined after your infertility workup with all testing and evaluations has been completed.
