It’s a happy new year! Or perhaps not as happy as you hoped it would be without a little one on the way. Have you been wishing for a baby? Dreaming of another member of your family? If so, maybe you want to make a goal to learn as much as you can about the process, meet with a specialist, and find out what the best options are to create the family you’ve always wanted. Here are some facts to get you started:
About 35 percent of the time, the issue is with the woman’s fertility; another 35 percent of the time, it’s the man’s; the rest of the time, both partners contribute to the issue.
When you visit a fertility specialist, you’ll discuss your medical history and what further evaluations are needed to come up with a plan. Questions you’ll review include your ovulation schedule, if your fallopian tubes function normally, how your uterus looks, and if your partner’s sperm are average in number and functionality. After a diagnosis is reached, you’ll work on a treatment plan to guide your journey!
If you’d like to hear from some of our past patients, or meet with a specialist to find out what we can do to help as you create a family, please contact us anytime at 717-747-3099 or click on the button below.
