About Infertility

Infertility is having timed intercourse and not becoming pregnant within a year. This condition is common, and may impact more than 1 in 10 couples. Various treatments can help achieve success in conceiving a child. There are a wide variety of reasons and conditions that a couple may experience infertility. It can involve the female reproductive system, the males reproductive system, or both. Female infertility may be caused by; ovulation disorders, uterine abnormalities, fallopian tube damage, endometriosis and/or a hormonal imbalance. Male infertility may be caused by; abnormal sperm production, genetic diseases, over exposure to alcohol or drugs, cancer or damage to reproductive organs.

That depends on which treatment you are using. But, generally all cycles are monitored with ultrasound.

Yes, we are contracted with most plans. However, not all plans cover infertility treatment and care. Our office will need to verify with your insurance what benefits you have.

Infertility Treatment

Our in-office Services include:

  • Ultrasound Surveillance
  • Intrauterine Insemination
  • Ovulation Induction
  • Sonohysterogram

This can be done for:

  • Abnormal growths inside the uterus, such as fibroids or polyps.
  • Scar tissue
  • Abnormal uterine shape
  • Problems with the lining of the uterus

Ovulation Induction

The process of using medications to stimulate ovulation in women with irregular or absent ovulation or anovulation is referred to as ovulation induction. This is usually the first treatment used and can be paired with other treatments.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

A non-surgical procedure, also known as artificial insemination, that places prepared sperm cells into the woman’s uterus to produce a pregnancy. Is used for unexplained infertility and is less costly than other more invasive procedures.

Ultrasound Surveillance

Transvaginal ultrasound is used to evaluate structures in the pelvis such as the uterus, endometrium and ovaries. This will help determine if any pathology is present and determine size and number of ovarian follicles before ovulation.


Sonhohysterogram is a special kind of ultrasound exam. Fluid is put into the uterus through the cervix using a thin plastic tube. Sound waves are then used to create images of the lining of the uterus. The fluid helps show more detail than when ultrasound is used alone.
