Infertility

What is infertility?

Infertility is when you’re not able to become pregnant or if you can get pregnant, but miscarry or have a stillbirth. Approximately 15% of couples struggle to conceive naturally. Infertility affects both women and men, so if you and your partner are struggling to conceive, you should both get tested for fertility issues. Once Dr. Jothi diagnoses the cause of your infertility, she provides treatments to help you conceive. In fact, 85-90% of infertility cases are treated with conventional medicine.

When should I talk to a doctor about infertility?

If you’re under the age of 35, you should talk to Dr. Jothi about your fertility concerns after you’ve been trying to conceive for a year without success. If you’re 35 or older, you should make a fertility consultation appointment after six months of trying.

What causes infertility?

An enormous range of health conditions and issues can disrupt your fertility. Dr. Jothi provides full fertility evaluations to identify and diagnose the condition causing your inability to conceive. In most cases, infertility in women is caused by disruption to ovulation, which is often due to a hormonal disorder like polycystic ovarian syndrome. Other common causes of infertility in women include:

  • Blocked fallopian tubes
  • Physical abnormalities in the uterus
  • Uterine fibroids

Remember that men can also have fertility problems. For men, fertility issues are due to the quantity or quality of their sperm.

How is infertility treated?

At Womens Care of Bradenton, Dr. Jothi provides customized treatments to address your specific condition and needs. She offers a variety of medications and procedures to help you conceive. For example, if your infertility is due to irregular ovulation, she can manage your ovulation with a prescription to stimulate the production and release of viable eggs.

Alternatively, if you’re struggling to get pregnant because your partner’s sperm isn’t reaching your eggs, Dr. Jothi offers intrauterine insemination (IUI) procedures.

During IUI, you take medication to stimulate ovulation, and Dr. Jothi carefully monitors your hormone levels to identify your most fertile day during your cycle. Then, she takes a sample of your partner’s (or a donor’s) semen and injects it directly into your uterus to increase the chances of fertilization.

If you’ve been unsuccessfully trying for a baby, call Dr. Jothi at Womens Care of Bradenton or schedule a consultation online for compassionate, expert fertility assessment and treatment.
