Infertility Q & A

When should I talk to a doctor about infertility?

If you’re under the age of 35 and have been trying to get pregnant for a year without success, or if you’re 35 or older and have been trying for six months, you should make an appointment to talk to Dr. Khamvongsa about infertility. 

What are common infertility issues?

Pregnancy is the result of a series of carefully timed events. Your ovaries need to release a viable egg that has to travel through your fallopian tubes toward your uterus. A sperm cell needs to meet your egg along this journey and fertilize it. Then, the fertilized egg needs to implant in the lining of your uterus. 

Some of the factors that can get in the way of pregnancy include:

 

  • Ovaries don’t release viable eggs
  • Something blocks your fallopian tubes 
  • A physical problem with the uterus

 

Other issues can decrease your chances of getting pregnant. For example, if you have high stress levels, use tobacco, or consume too much alcohol. Additionally, a poor diet, diabetes, or being significantly under or overweight can interfere with fertility. 

However, infertility isn’t only a women’s health problem. Around a third of fertility problems are related to men’s health issues like low sperm count or poor sperm motility. While you’re undergoing fertility assessments, your partner should also have a semen analysis and an overall health assessment. 

What tests diagnose the cause of infertility?

Dr. Khamvongsa provides lab tests and ultrasound to provide an initial fertility assessment. He also offers sonohysterography evaluation of your uterine anatomy and fallopian tubes. Sonohysterography is a minimally invasive procedure that creates ultrasound images from inside your body for more detail about potential structural issues in your reproductive organs. 

What are the available infertility treatments?

Dr. Khamvongsa offers compassionate and customized treatments to increase your fertility. Depending on your needs, he might suggest hormonal management of ovulation issues. He also provides intrauterine insemination (IUI) services. 

IUI involves placing healthy sperm cells directly into your uterus during your fertile window. Dr. Khamvongsa monitors your ovaries to identify when they release an egg to determine the best time to perform IUI. If more specialized fertility treatments are needed, Dr. Khamvongsa can refer you to other specialists to help you grow your family.
