The experienced gynecologists at The Institute for Gynecologic Care at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, work individually with patients to diagnose and treat conditions and disorders that lead to infertility. Mercy’s specialists understand the physical and emotional toll infertility can have on women and their families and offer treatment plans with an emphasis on compassion and support.
Infertility is defined as the inability to get pregnant despite having frequent, unprotected sex for at least a year - or for at least six months if the woman is age 35 or older. Infertility may be caused by a single condition or a combination of factors. Our doctors’ focus and approach in dealing with infertility is to diagnose and treat the underlying causes of infertility in order to help patients conceive naturally.
Our gynecologists examine a woman’s symptoms and history as well as conduct a physical exam to determine the underlying cause of infertility. Symptoms such as prolonged menstrual bleeding and pelvic and back pain may be the cause of conditions such as endometriosis and fibroids. These conditions, as well as many others, may ultimately lead to infertility. Once doctors identify the cause, they work with women to find the best course of action.
Asherman's Syndrome is a condition that may lead to infertility. Asherman's Syndrome is an acquired uterine disease that is characterized by the formation of scar tissue or adhesions in the uterus. It occurs most often after uterine surgery, particularly a dilation and curettage done after a birth, miscarriage or abortion. When the condition is severe, a woman usually does not have a period and it can cause infertility or miscarriages.
Treatment of infertility will depend on the underlying cause and the severity of the issue. Women suffering from conditions such as endometriosis or fibroids may simply require medication or hormone therapy. In some case, surgery may be required.
The treatment of Asherman's Syndrome requires advanced hysteroscopy to remove the formation of scar tissue or adhesions in the uterus. The gynecologists at The Institute for Gynecologic Care at Mercy have extensive experience in treating Asherman's Syndrome resulting in improved pregnancy rates for many patients.
