Causes of Infertility

Understanding the causes of infertility at Laurel Fertility Care

Infertility can be a complex issue, and understanding the root causes is crucial for effective treatment. Laurel Fertility Care, located in San Francisco, Modesto, and Oakland, specializes in comprehensive fertility services.

Understanding the causes of female infertility

Ovulatory disorders
One of the leading causes of female infertility is ovulatory disorders. Conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can disrupt the regular release of eggs from the ovaries. At Laurel Fertility Care, our expert team employs advanced diagnostic techniques to identify ovulatory disorders and tailor treatment plans accordingly.

Uterine or cervical abnormalities
Issues with the uterus or cervix can also contribute to infertility. Structural abnormalities, such as fibroids or polyps, may interfere with implantation. Our specialists at Laurel Fertility Care utilize state-of-the-art imaging technology to identify and address any uterine or cervical issues.

Tubal factors
Fallopian tube blockages or damage can prevent the egg from meeting the sperm, leading to infertility. Laurel Fertility Care employs cutting-edge procedures like hysterosalpingography to diagnose tubal factors and recommend suitable treatment options.

Endometriosis, a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus, can significantly impact fertility. Our team at Laurel Fertility Care has extensive experience in managing and treating endometriosis to improve fertility outcomes.

Male causes of infertility: partnering with us for parenthood

Infertility is not solely a female concern. Males can also face challenges that impact fertility. Laurel Fertility Care understands the importance of a comprehensive approach, addressing both male and female factors.

Sperm quality and quantity
Low sperm count or poor sperm motility can hinder the chances of conception. At Laurel Fertility Care, our specialists conduct thorough male fertility evaluations, utilizing advanced diagnostic tools to assess sperm quality and quantity.

Erectile dysfunction and other male factors
Issues such as erectile dysfunction or hormonal imbalances can also contribute to male infertility. Our team collaborates with male patients to identify and address these factors, offering personalized treatment plans to enhance fertility.
