Helping women with infertility treatments in the Chicago area

Most often, a couple trying to become pregnant will be successful within a six-month period. Within twelve months of unprotected sex, there is a 90 percent success rate. If pregnancy does not occur after a year of unprotected sex, a couple can benefit from evaluation for infertility. There are treatments for this problem and your Chicago OBGYN can help you navigate the process.

It is understandable that frustration and concern may occur when becoming pregnant is a challenge. The good news is that modern medicine has effective treatments that may facilitate the end goal. At Northwestern Women’s Health Associates S.C., infertility consultation may be in order for the woman who:
  • Is over the age of forty
  • Has not conceived after regular, unprotected sex for a six to twelve month time frame
  • Has been diagnosed with a fertility issue
  • Who does not menstruate regularly
  • Has miscarried one or more times
  • Has received some type of cancer treatment
  • Has been diagnosed with endometriosis or pelvic inflammatory disease
Infertility may occur for one of several reasons. In fact, the challenge presented may be due to either partner, not just the woman. Working with the experienced team at Northwestern Women’s Health Associates is the best way to determine what may be causing infertility. When we can identify a cause, we know which way to progress in terms of treatment.

Causes of infertility can be related to not ovulating or passing an egg, tubal disease preventing the egg and the sperm from getting together, or poor sperm quality. The most common cause is unexplained infertility that requires empiric treatment. By taking proactive steps without a firm diagnosis, we are able to encourage fertility through conservative means.

Research suggests that couples who receive treatment for infertility are just as likely as “fertile” couples to achieve conception. We hope this data will encourage you to obtain the information and evaluation necessary to determine the best approach to infertility care.

Northwestern Women’s Health Associates provides outstanding care using proven treatments to help our patients achieve their goals. For more information on infertility assessment and treatments, call 1-312-440-9400. Back to Gynecology Home Page

I came out of surgery feeling great and post op I was back to work within two weeks. Everyone at the practice, at the hospital, at pre-op were incredible."
