Causes of Infertility
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.
