"I was experiencing pain and Dr Rostein was able to diagnose me right away."
If a couple has been actively trying to get pregnant for more than a year without success, it classifies as infertility. Treatment for women who are over 35 can start in as little as six months after trying without conception. Those who have suffered from repeated miscarriages may seek out treatment as well.
The first step is for the couples to come into the office for a medical evaluation. Dr. Daniel Rostein will discuss the patient's medical histories. The woman will need to undergo a physical exam. The process starts out with the basic testing and may require additional evaluations if the test results are not conclusive as to a cause of infertility. Some of the basic testing includes the following:
There are a number of causes of infertility. One of the more common problems with women is issues with ovulation. A woman might also have uterine or cervical abnormalities that prevent implantation. Damage or blockage of the fallopian tube that prevents the release of healthy, mature eggs is also possible. Certain conditions like endometriosis affect multiple areas of the woman's reproductive system such as the uterus and ovaries. Some women go through menopause early as a result of a disease or medical treatment. Scar tissue may build up because of an infection or surgery. Thyroid problems, cancer, and certain medications can also be the culprit in some cases. Men are sometimes the cause of the inability of the woman to get pregnant due to issues with sperm and ejaculation.
Dr. Daniel Rostein is able to provide fertility drugs, artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization, blastocyst transfer, intracytoplasmic sperm injection and tubal ligation reversal. He will decide the best course of action, but it may take more than one option.
