Find out what fertility treatment options are available in Dallas, TX.
Millions of women deal with issues conceiving. We know how upsetting and stressful this can be. Luckily, our Dallas, TX, OBGYN Dr. Carolyn Ross Riley can provide you with a range of fertility treatment options. Wondering how we can help improve your chances of getting pregnant? Here’s what to expect when you come into our office for an evaluation.
When should I turn to a fertility specialist?
Wondering whether it’s time to sit down with our gynecologist in Dallas to consider whether fertility treatment could increase your success rate of getting pregnant? You may want to consider coming into our office for an evaluation if,
- You’re under 35 years old and you’ve been trying to get pregnant for more than one year
- You’re over 35 years old and you’ve been trying to get pregnant for six months or more
By turning to our OBGYN we can both pinpoint and treat infertility problems. Common infertility issues include,
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
- Ovulation issues
- Abnormalities in the uterus, ovaries or fallopian tubes
An OBGYN will be able to prescribe certain medications such as Clomid that can improve fertility by regulating ovulation. We can even discuss whether you could benefit from intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF) if your partner’s sperm count is normal.
It’s important that both partners see a doctor to assess their fertility. From there, we will be able to evaluate your personal situation to decide the best treatment or treatments needed to increase your chances of getting pregnant.
IUI and IVF are the two most common types of fertility treatments. During IUI, sperm is collected and inserted into the uterus during ovulation. During IVF, eggs are taken from the ovaries and fertilized in a lab along with sperm to develop embryos. These embryos are then implanted into the uterus.
Donor sperm or eggs, as well as surrogates, are also options, particularly for single people and same-sex couples who wish to have a baby. Donor sperm or egg may also be used in situations where there are issues with you and your partner’s sperm or eggs.
