If you're having difficulty getting pregnant, being evaluated is the first step toward understanding the underlying cause. Dr. Silver offers a full complement of infertility services to diagnose infertility issues and provide treatments to help you conceive.
Not necessarily. Infertility is defined as trying to get pregnant for at least 12 consecutive months with no success. If you're having difficulty becoming pregnant and you're concerned, having an evaluation is the best way to put those worries to rest and to decide if you need to take additional steps to help you become pregnant.
Dr. Silver offers several different types of services, depending on each patient's unique needs, including:
evaluation of factors contributing to multiple miscarriages
preconception counseling to minimize risk factors
genetic testing and counseling referral
intrauterine insemination (IUI)
About 10 percent of all couples in the U.S. are infertile. For women, the most common causes include:
structural abnormalities in the uterus
endometriosis, a condition that occurs when uterine tissue grows outside the uterus
excessive production of mucus that can impair sperm motility
Dr. Silver uses state-of-the-art techniques and technology to help pinpoint the cause of your infertility and to develop a plan to increase your chances of becoming pregnant.
The type of treatment will depend on the underlying cause of your infertility. Dr. Silver can recommend the treatment that's most appropriate for your needs and recommend a specialist when necessary.
IUI can be used with or without fertility drugs. When used with fertility drugs (called stimulated IUI), your risk of multiple births is much higher than when IUI is used alone because fertility drugs increase the number of eggs that are released.
