While not getting pregnant is the clearest sign of infertility, there are many others.
Female infertility can be a hormonal issue. Periods that are irregular, too heavy, too light, or painful most often suggest a problem with ovulation. Less commonly women might sense a decrease in sex drive, sudden weight gain, hair loss, or hair growth in random places.
The symptoms of infertility are not as evident in men. Men with low libido, pain or swelling in the groin area, or problems getting or maintaining an erection should see a doctor right away.
These symptoms do not necessarily mean you’re infertile, but it’s important to see a qualified fertility doctor for a full evaluation.
Women who were exposed to venereally transmitted disease such as Chlamydia or Gonorrhea might have suffered tubal damage which will cause infertility.
Women who have trouble getting pregnant or keeping a pregnancy should consult with a fertility specialist like Dr. Madanes as early in the process as possible.
To treat infertility, Dr. Madanes must first determine its cause. During your first visit to the Midwest Fertility Center, he will discuss:
For men, the next step is usually a semen analysis, where a sperm sample receives testing for sperm count, shape, and movement.
For women, the next step is often a tubal evaluation, where an X-ray is used to view dye moving through the fallopian tubes. This test shows any blockages that may be preventing pregnancy. Dr. Madanes will also test your blood for the various reproductive hormones, including FSH or AMH, to help determine your ovarian reserve and progesterone levels to assess your ovulatory functions.
Dr. Madanes can treat infertility with one or more of the following:
