Secondary infertility treatment can help you have another baby
Many people assume that it will be no problem to have another baby if they haven’t had fertility issues before. However, 12% of women have trouble when they try to conceive again. When this happens, the team at Fertility Specialists of Texas will typically make a diagnosis of secondary infertility.
We know that this diagnosis can often come as a shock, but we want our patients to know that it is treatable. Our Dallas-Fort Worth infertility center offers secondary infertility treatment to help overcome the complex causes of this condition so that our patients can grow their families.
Getting a diagnosis is the first step when you want to have another baby
Many different issues can cause secondary infertility. In some cases, patients may have trouble conceiving again after developing uterine polyps or fibroids. It’s also very common for an age-related decline in fertility to cause secondary infertility. As a result, our doctors always order diagnostic testing before recommending secondary infertility treatment.
During your first appointment at our Dallas-Fort Worth infertility center, your doctor will ask about your medical history and order fertility testing.
- Female patients will often have bloodwork, an ultrasound and an HSG.
- Male patients will typically have a semen analysis.
After reviewing your test results, your doctor can make a diagnosis and recommend a treatment plan to help you overcome any barriers to pregnancy.
We offer a wide variety of secondary infertility treatment options
Because each person is unique, our doctors base their treatment recommendations on each patient’s diagnosis. Doing so allows our team to create customized plans to help our patients have another baby.
- Fertility medications and intrauterine insemination (IUI) can often help if ovulatory disorders are an issue.
- Minimally invasive fertility surgery is a great option to address endometriosis and uterine abnormalities like polyps and fibroids.
- In vitro fertilization (IVF) with or without donor eggs can help address many issues, including endometriosis, male infertility, low egg quantity or quality and recurrent miscarriage.
Our Dallas-Fort Worth infertility center also offers third party reproduction options like donor sperm and donor embryos as well as gestational surrogacy. Additionally, patients can often benefit from preimplantation genetic testing (PGT).
You can count on your doctor to explain your treatment options and help you select the best path forward. From there, our team will guide you on your journey to experience pregnancy and parenthood again. Contact us if you’d like to learn more about secondary infertility treatment.
