Identifying female infertility causes
You may walk into our Austin fertility center with a clear diagnosis, such as PCOS or uterine fibroids, or grappling with unexplained pregnancy loss. Either way, Dr. Propst will provide a definitive answer to the question: “Why can’t I get pregnant?”
Our fertility center team shares with each new patient the basic facts about female infertility, and designs a patient-centric timeline for female infertility testing and treatment.
Female infertility accounts for about one-third of all cases; male factors contribute to a third, and a combination of male and female causes contribute to the final third. Our Austin fertility center meticulously investigates possible causes of female and male infertility.
Hormonal causes of female infertility: Ovulatory dysfunction accounts for the majority of cases of female infertility. Fortunately, many women respond well to baseline therapies to induce ovulation.
Anatomical causes of female infertility: Even minor abnormalities in the surfaces or formation of reproductive organs can lead to infertility. Treating causes of female infertility such as endometriosis, fibroids and uterine septums can restore fertility potential.
Age related female infertility: A common cause of female infertility, age related infertility, results after a decline or depletion of the oocytes (eggs) in the ovary.
Female infertility testing will begin with the most non-invasive and straightforward diagnostic tools.
Blood testing: Our fertility center can confirm ovulation, ovarian reserve, and progesterone levels with a series of blood tests performed over one or two menstrual cycles.
Physical examination: Ultrasound technology reveals preliminary data about the pelvic cavity, uterus and ovaries.
In-office fertility testing: Saline infusion sonohysterogram (SIS) is an ultrasound procedure we use to evaluate the uterine lining and the shape of the uterus.
Fertility surgery: Dr. Propst is a highly trained fertility surgeon, specializing in robotic and other minimally invasive techniques.
Depending on initial findings, Dr. Propst will explain your options if you need higher-level testing with laparoscopic or other minimally invasive fertility surgery.
