There are many reasons why couples have a delay in achieving a pregnancy. Unfortunately there is no single answer to each of these problems. This is why a thorough medical history discussion and a clinical examination needs to occur for each couple.
Simone understands that no two couples are the same, and that fertility issues can be complex. During the first appointment, Simone will talk to you both about your individual circumstances. Investigations will be ordered and a time will be organised to see you both to discuss these results.
Common Causes For Infertility
- Ovulation disorders – when a woman’s ovulation is unpredictable or absent. Polycystic ovarian syndrome is an example of this.
- Fallopian tube blockage – This can be related to pelvic infection, or can be associated with complications of previous pregnancies or miscarriage.
- Sperm issues – this can be easily assessed with semen analysis
- Endometriosis – when the lining cells of the uterus are abnormally growing elsewhere in the pelvis. This can affect the chance of implantation of an embryo into the uterus.
- Sexual dysfunction
- Unexplained infertility
