White-Wilson Medical Center

Infertility can be a real challenge for couples trying to conceive. The Center for Women's Health are here to help patients through this journey. Most experts define infertility as not being able to get pregnant after at least one year of trying to conceive. Women who are able to get pregnant but then have repeat miscarriages may also seek fertility care. About 12% of all women aged 15 to 44 have infertility issues.

Infertility is not just a woman's problem. Only one third of infertility cases are due to female factors. One third is due to male factors, and the other third is due to a combination of both male and female issues.

Problems with ovulation may account for the majority of issues in women. Without ovulation, there are no eggs to be fertilized. Factors that also affect women's fertility include: stress, smoking, being over or under weight, alcohol, STDs, poor diet, some medications, etc.

If you are trying to get pregnant, tell your physician. If you've had difficulties, he/she may be able to provide potential treatments.

The White-Wilson Center for Women's Health is here to help you identify and treat infertility issues, or help you get a referral to the appropriate specialist if needed.
