According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately one in 10 women will have difficulty conceiving or maintaining a pregnancy. Whether you have tried unsuccessfully to become pregnant for six months, have a history of infertility, or are trying to conceive after age 35, your Desert West physicians are here to help. Our providers work with both partners to determine the cause(s).

The first steps often include:

  • A physical examination for the woman
  • Reviewing both partners’ health histories
  • Tracking ovulation at home

There are many options for couples experiencing infertility and with patience and perseverance, many will achieve full-term pregnancies.

If you are concerned about your fertility, make an appointment with your Desert West physician.
