Female Infertility

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 for most people. However, some men and women experience difficulties with conception. There are numerous causes of infertility, many of which can be treated with fertility medications and lifestyle changes. Others require more advanced medical techniques such as in-vitro fertilization.

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
  • Diabetes
  • 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.
