What is Infertility?
Infertility is the failure to establish a pregnancy after one year of unprotected intercourse, or the occurrence of multiple miscarriages. Chances of becoming pregnant drop with each passing year after age 30. Women in this age group should consider seeking help if conception has not occurred after six months of trying.
What Causes Infertility?
Infertility is common. One in every five couples experiences some difficulty having a child. There are many causes, and infertility is not JUST a women’s problem; roughly one-third of infertility cases can be attributed to male factors. For the remaining infertile couples, infertility is caused by a combination of problems in both partners (about 13 percent) or is unexplained (about 10 percent).*
Happily, the majority of couples—approximately two-thirds who have been treated for infertility—go on to have babies. However, some treatments do not always provide the rewards we expect, or a couple may have to seek the care of an infertility specialist requiring more invasive treatment to achieve pregnancy.
We are proud of the pregnancy success in our clinic. We realize trying to have a child is one of the biggest challenges a couple may face, which is why our entire staff is committed to providing the highest quality of care—both physical and emotional—while making you as comfortable as possible every step of the way.
MWC’s Fertility Program is dedicated to helping you build a family. We share your excitement and hope as we embark in this process… together.
