Understanding Infertility

Using Targeted Testing to Find a Cause That Leads to a Cure

If you are trying to conceive and have run into difficulty, try not to lose hope. At Palm Beach Fertility Center, we will recommend the best course of action to help you bring home a baby. We will work with you to determine what is causing your fertility struggles and help you find a solution.

Identifying the Cause of Your Infertility

Most healthy adults under the age of 30 can conceive after less than 12 months of trying. If conception does not take place after that time, there are many tests available to determine the cause of infertility. However, for about 1 in every 12 couples, trying to conceive without medical help results in disappointment, because they cannot identify a reason for their infertility struggles. If you have been attempting to conceive for more than 12 months, or for more than six months if you are older than 35, take a proactive step now and partner with a fertility specialist.

If you are 35 or older, rest assured that advances in fertility treatments such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF), donor egg, and donor sperm often negate biological-clock constraints. Your life circumstances, including career demands, health issues, or delayed marriages, sometimes result in age-related fertility issues.

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 treatment plan. Blood testing, basal temperature monitoring, and pelvic ultrasound are all first-round assessments that may be performed for women.
  • Male infertility: Approximately 40% of all cases we see at Palm Beach Fertility Center concern male infertility. In men, examining a semen sample is a logical first step, and 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.

We understand that fertility is a very delicate, personal subject, and it can be emotional and embarrassing to discuss openly.
