Female Infertility

 

Female Infertility Evaluation is the First Step to Success in Our Kansas City Fertility Center

You’ve dreamed of having a baby one day only to wake to the nightmare of having trouble getting pregnant. At Midwest Reproductive Center, we specialize in finding the causes of female infertility and initiating an effective treatment plan.

The female reproductive organs function within a beautifully complex system. Unfortunately, a lot can go wrong. Aging alone impacts fertility, especially after age 35. Dr. Dan Gehlbach dedicates himself to treating these and other causes of female infertility:

Ovulation Dysfunction
To become pregnant, the female partner needs to release a viable egg during ovulation. When this doesn’t occur, we attribute female infertility to ovulation dysfunction. If an egg is released only sporadically or not at all, as is the case with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), your hopes of getting pregnant fade away.

Uterine Causes of Female Infertility
Anatomical barriers to pregnancy include endometriosis, fibroids, pelvic adhesions or cysts.

Tubal Causes of Female Infertility
The gateway to pregnancy, fallopian tubes that are blocked, damaged or inflamed can prevent sperm from reaching the egg or a fertilized egg from entering the uterus.

Other Causes of Female Infertility
In addition to ovulation dysfunction and uterine and tubal causes of female infertility, we treat women suffering from recurrent miscarriage, secondary infertility (the inability to conceive and deliver a child following the birth of one or more biological child) and unexplained infertility.

Skilled surgeon and reproductive endocrinologist Dr. Gehlbach can correct these issues with IVF, IUI or minimally invasive laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgeries or laparotomy fertility surgery. If you’ve tried to get pregnant on your own with no results, it may be time to evaluate your fertility risk factors and seek targeted treatment options that can reverse female infertility.
