At Veritas Fertility & Surgery, we take a holistic approach to the medical treatment of infertility. Rather than simply offering all patients a single protocol of ovulation medications, we use a variety of treatments to address many aspects of the fertility process. After a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation, we provide a tailored plan for each couple that addresses any issues thought to be impacting a couple’s fertility.
Medical fertility treatments commonly address the following issues:
- Ovulation disorders
- Poor cervical mucus
- Luteal phase hormone deficiencies
- Cycle irregularity
- Endometrial inflammation (chronic endometritis)
- Endocrine disorders
- Bleeding or clotting disorders
- Low sperm count
- Poor sperm motility
Lifestyle modifications such as weight optimization, moderation of alcohol intake, and smoking cessation are often important issues to address as well.
The Creighton Model FertilityCare System serves an important role in the fertility treatments we offer at Veritas Fertility & Surgery. By closely tracking her cycle, a woman can accurately identify her fertile window and day of ovulation, helping appropriately time medications. Additionally, changes in bleeding patterns and cervical mucus can be readily observed with this kind of cycle tracking, and this can aid both in the diagnosis of more subtle issues and in assessing a woman’s response to treatments.
Women with a history of infertility or recurrent miscarriage have an increased risk of miscarriage compared to women without this history. Therefore, such women will frequently benefit from hormonal support during the early weeks of pregnancy. At Veritas Fertility & Surgery, we closely monitor HCG and progesterone levels in early pregnancy and treat hormonal deficiencies as necessary to give women the best chance of a healthy pregnancy.
When it comes to improving a couple’s chances of conception, Veritas Fertility & Surgery provides a full spectrum of treatments that address the underlying causes of infertility.
