A Holistic Approach at Our Fertility Treatment Center
At Walnut Hill Obstetrics & Gynecology Associates, we believe in taking a holistic approach to infertility. Our Dallas fertility treatment center aligns with the philosophy that a balanced mind-body approach to infertility treatment helps couples better handle the emotional stress often involved with treatment and may even improve the treatment’s success rate. Our infertility specialists work closely with our gynecologists and obstetricians to diagnose fertility issues and tailor treatments to your specific needs.
When Should I See a Fertility Specialist at Walnut Hill?
Fertility specialists diagnose and provide fertility treatments for both female and male partners. Possible tests for female partners include ovulation and hormone testing, hysteroscopy, and laparoscopy. Tests for male partners include semen analysis and testicular imaging or biopsy. Women under 35 who are not using birth control while trying to conceive should wait at least 6-12 months before seeing a fertility specialist. Women over 40 may see one immediately, as complications aren’t uncommon in later childbearing years.
Other factors besides age often affect fertility, including obesity, elevated stress levels, side effects from certain medications, endometriosis complications, side effects from cancer or cancer treatments, and sexually transmitted infections, which is why we provide personalized infertility treatments at our fertility treatment center in Dallas. We utilize various tools when determining why a couple is having issues conceiving, including sonography screenings. Sonography screenings are non-invasive ultrasounds used to show any signs of anatomical abnormalities, polyps, fibroids, and more.
In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Treatments in North Texas
One of the most common fertility treatments we offer is in-vitro fertilization (IVF). If a couple has been trying to conceive for a year or more without success, we perform a fertility evaluation to determine the viability of IVF. During in-vitro fertilization treatments, mature eggs are removed from the ovaries, fertilized by sperm in a lab, and then an embryo(s) is transferred to the uterus. Our IVF clinic in Dallas uses your eggs and your partner’s sperm (or a donor’s). Treatments require time as well as physical and emotional energy, but our compassionate staff helps minimize this difficulty for our patients.
Artificial Insemination for Texas Couples Looking to Conceive
Intrauterine insemination (also called artificial insemination) is another common procedure that aids couples with fertility issues. IUI treatment differs from IVF treatment in that the fertilization occurs inside the uterus and not externally in the lab. During intrauterine insemination, the partner or donor’s sperm is injected directly into the woman’s uterus. When fertilization is successful, the embryo(s) also implants inside the uterus. There is no combining of the eggs and sperm inside an external petri dish. Usually less expensive and invasive than IVF, artificial insemination is typically recommended in multiple rounds before attempting IVF, although IVF traditionally has a higher success rate.
