Isolating the Causes of Infertility

You’ve tried on your own to get pregnant; now it’s time to visit a fertility clinic for answers. Ready access to ovulation predictor kits may alert you to problems with female infertility, but most couples arrive at Dreams Fertility frustrated and puzzled as to the cause of their infertility.

Think of conception as a domino effect: A myriad of biological events must take place, one after the next, for a single sperm to fertilize an ovulated egg and successful pregnancy to unfold.

If any one of these steps in the reproductive process fails to take place, the process stops. In any given month, a healthy, fertile couple has a 15-25 percent chance of getting pregnant, and nearly 80 percent of couples will get pregnant within a year.

When you can’t get pregnant after 12 months (6 months if you are over 35), our fertility clinic recommends taking a proactive approach with targeted testing to determine the cause of infertility.
