Shedding Light on Female Infertility Issues
Providing Compassionate Fertility Care at Palm Beach Fertility Center
Dr. Mark Denker believes that having a baby is considered a rite of passage

Infertility in Women of All Ages
If you have been having difficulty conceiving, you should remain hopeful
and never blame yourself. The female body is very complicated and there
are many small components which can be unbalanced that can lead to infertility.
Dr. Mark Denker will help you to understand exactly what is happening
in your body and the best way to resolve it. We want to help you achieve
the goal of pregnancy and being a parent.
Female infertility occurs when a fertilized egg does not stick to the uterine
wall, or endometrium. Lack of ovulation, or "anovulation," is
also a very common cause of infertility and is easily treated. Due to
our extensive knowledge and experience, even a seemingly hopeless case
may be resolved with careful treatment at Palm Beach Fertility Center.
- Female infertility may be caused by any of the following:
- Illness such as cancer
- Clotting disorders
- Birth defects of the reproductive tract
- Tumors, both benign and malignant, in the uterus
Other Factors Affecting Conception
Outside factors can also contribute to a woman’s failure to conceive.
This can include eating disorders, obesity, poor nutrition, and the use
of certain medications. Although exercise is considered part of a healthy
lifestyle, an overabundance of physical stress or failure to maintain
a healthy weight can also be the foundation of fertility problems.
Hormone imbalances, scar tissue from uterine trauma (from STDs, endometriosis,
etc.), and advanced maternal age are all additionally noted sources of
infertility. Typically, one or more of these physical causes are identified
and can be addressed. However, some women experience stress-induced infertility
or present with idiopathic (unknown cause) failure to conceive.
