Fertility Education and Support

An important part of fertility treatments and services is understanding what to expect from the procedure. Our fertility specialists provide a comprehensive review of your treatment plan as well as what you can expect throughout the process.

Before meeting with our specialists, you can start your journey here with our fertility resources. We understand that fertility treatment can feel complicated and overwhelming. You can reference these resources whenever you need to clarify what to expect and what you can do as an active participant in your care. Our team is here to help you every step of the way.

When to Consider Fertility Help

If you are struggling to conceive naturally, you are not alone. Studies from the World Health Organization show that infertility is common. One in every six couples of reproductive age worldwide experience infertility.

Infertility testing is a necessary first step for many individuals on their fertility journey. You may benefit from meeting with one of our board-certified reproductive endocrinologists depending on your age, menstrual cycle irregularities, or health history. 

For women who are over 40, an infertility evaluation is recommended after three months of unprotected intercourse. Women over 35 should seek testing after six months of unprotected intercourse, while women under 35 should consider testing after a year of trying to become pregnant without success.
