Identifying the Cause of Your Infertility
For 1 in 8 couples, trying to conceive on their own results in disappointment
and they struggle to find the cause of their infertility. If you have
tried for one year to get pregnant, or for six months if you are older
than 35, take a proactive step now and partner with a fertility specialist.
We work with both female and male patients:
Female infertility: Home ovulation kits may reveal a problem or you may suspect that you
have endometriosis or polycystic ovary disease (PCOS). Symptoms include
irregular, heavy periods, acne, excessive hair growth, or breast changes.
We may recommend fertility drugs to facilitate ovulation, minimally invasive
laparoscopic surgery, or advanced therapies as part of an individualized
Male infertility: Male infertility accounts for approximately 40% of all cases we see at
Palm Beach Fertility Center. Simple blood tests can reveal low sperm counts
and production or function issues. We help couples overcome low sperm
counts with ICSI paired with IVF. Should you require surgical intervention,
we specialize in fertility after vasectomy and varicocele repair.
Circumstances such as career demands, health issues or delayed marriages
sometimes result in age-related fertility issues. Rest assured that advances
in fertility treatments such as
in-vitro fertilization (IVF),
donor egg, and
donor sperm often negate biological-clock constraints.
Testing & Diagnosis for the Causes of Infertility
We understand that fertility is a very personal subject and it can be difficult
for some people to discuss. Dr. Denker and the team are extremely compassionate
and we are dedicated to supporting you and making you feel comfortable.
Most couples under 30 years old should conceive after one year or less
of having regular, unprotected intercourse. If conception does not take
place after that time, a number of tests are available to determine the
cause of the infertility. Dr. Denker believes that blood testing, basal
temperature monitoring, and pelvic ultrasound are all first-round assessments
that may be performed on infertile women. In men, examining a sperm sample
is a logical first step.
Treatments for Infertility
Infertility treatments may be as simple as lifestyle and diet education
and counseling. When additional steps are necessary, fertility treatments
including intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in-vitro fertilization (IVF),
coupled with fertility enhancing medicines, may be required. These medications
may also be used alone.
Any underlying cause, such as infection, endometriosis, and ovarian cysts,
must be treated as well. For those who need a little help, Palm Beach
Fertility Center offers a full line of fertility treatments, including
Advanced Reproductive Technology (ART) and newly approved methods such as the EVIE time-release insemination system.
