What is Infertility?
The absence of pregnancy after trying to conceive for one year. Each month, there is only a 20.5% chance of conceiving for health couples without infertility. It is estimated that 1 in 8 couples have trouble conceiving. Recurrent reproductive loss can be one form of infertility. In one-third of cases, the cause is due to issues with both the man and the woman. In another third, it’s the women’s issue leaving the remaining third due to male factors. In up to 15% of cases, no cause is determined. Causes of infertility can range from blocked fallopian tubes, irregular or absent ovulation (egg release), low progesterone levels, chromosomal abnormalities, structural abnormalities of the uterus such as fibroid. In men low sperm count, poor sperm quality (shapes) and impaired motility are common reasons for low fertility.

- Midcycle Ultrasounds are sometimes used to detect the size of the follicle that houses the egg
- Ovulation induction with medications

How do you get treatment for infertility?
See your doctor for an evaluation to determine the cause and management options. Ovulatory agents can be used with injections right before ovulation. Progesterone supplementation may be needed if a luteal phase defect is suspected or diagnosed. Sometimes surgery is needed to assess for endometriosis or scarring.
How can you get pregnant quickly?
The best way to get pregnant fast is to have frequent sexual intercourse starting after menstruation and continuing every day or every other day until after ovulation. Consider an ovulation kit to detect ovulation which can be used to estimate the approximate day of ovulation.
