National Endometriosis Awareness Month Facts

Here’s the deal: Endometriosis affects one out of ten women.

  • Endometriosis is one of the top three causes of female infertility

  • An estimated 6.5 million women in the U.S. – and 200 million globally – are affected by endometriosis

Under what circumstances do I need IVF treatment?

couplesAt New Hope Fertility Center in New York, I have encountered a few couples who, after a few years of trying to conceive and no infertility tests done, come and tell me that they wanted to do and are ready for an IVF treatment. When this situation happens, we explain to patients that not all infertile couples need to do IVF. First, we will need to check the semen quality. If it is poor quality, the woman does not need to have a tubal patency test undergoing IVF treatment. If the semen quality is poor, the sperm does not have the ability to naturally fertilize the egg. On the other hand, if the semen quality is good, the woman will need to have a tubal patency test. If the tubes are normal, they may consider artificial insemination; if the tubes are abnormal (or blocked), they may need IVF treatment.

How Does Ovary Removal Work?

Ovary removal, or oophorectomy, may be performed for a number of reasons to address medical issues.  When only one ovary is removed, a woman is still able to become pregnant as her remaining ovary will continue to produce eggs and ovulate.  If fertility issues exist, a woman with one ovary can receive treatment just like any other woman.  Understanding the process of ovary removal and its impact on your fertility may make undergoing this procedure less stressful.
