The right infertility diagnosis is the key to overcome fertility issues and welcome a baby
Does this sound familiar? Despite your best efforts to conceive, you still see a negative pregnancy test each month. Countless patients of Fertility Specialists of Texas (FST) have been in the same situation. However, they have been able to become parents after receiving the right infertility diagnosis and treatment from our Dallas-Fort Worth fertility specialists. You might be wondering why the right diagnosis is so important though. Our team of fertility experts is here to shed some light on this topic.
It’s important to make sure your fertility doctor is treating the right issue
In the world of reproductive medicine, there are many different infertility diagnoses, and each one requires a different treatment plan. Without the right infertility diagnosis, it’s much more difficult to get the fertility treatment you need to start or grow your family.
For example, let’s say a patient has polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). This condition causes multiple symptoms, including irregular or absent ovulation. This means that the best fertility treatment for PCOS is often oral medications for ovulation induction. Some common examples include Clomid (clomiphene citrate) and Femara (letrozole). However, if the woman’s doctor misdiagnoses her as having endometriosis, he or she might recommend minimally invasive surgery. Not only would this be much more involved than taking oral medications, it also wouldn’t help the woman conceive a baby.
In contrast to this situation, let’s say the patient visited one of our Dallas-Fort Worth fertility specialists, and they gave her the right infertility diagnosis of PCOS. This would allow her doctor to design a customized treatment plan from the start. It would not only shorten the time it would take her to bring home a healthy baby, but it would also save her money and stress.
