Female Infertility

If you are having trouble getting pregnant, you must realize that many different factors can inhibit fertility and that the majority of them are entirely reversible or treatable. This page describes some of the common causes of infertility problems and how they are addressed at our Sacramento-area practice.

In order to determine the cause of infertility, physicians must be able to identify whether there is a problem with the sperm or with the egg, if there is something preventing the two from coming together, and if there is anything inhibiting implantation and development of a resulting embryo. It is not uncommon for more than one factor to be present, which is why a full range of tests is usually performed, even if one factor has already been identified.
