Fertility Treatment Options
Fertility treatment options for women dealing with infertility
If you are concerned about conceiving, you should consult with our Austin obgyns about fertility treatment options and fertility services. Our physicians can provide an infertility evaluation, fertility testing and treatment for certain problems.
Lifestyle changes are one of the most basic fertility treatment options
Our Austin obgyns can counsel you about fertility treatment options, including several lifestyle changes you can make to optimize your natural fertility.
- Try to reach a normal body mass index (BMI). If you are overweight or underweight, it may affect your fertility.
- Get a moderate amount of exercise at least five days a week.
- Don’t smoke, drink alcohol or use recreational drugs.
- Ask about your fertility window, the days when you are most likely to conceive.
Medications can help regulate abnormal hormone levels
Medications are also fertility treatment options. If fertility testing indicates that your hormone levels are abnormal, our Austin obgyns can prescribe certain medications to regulate them. Medications are also available to help regulate ovulation.
Surgery may solve structural or anatomical problems that cause infertility
If an infertility evaluation and fertility testing indicate that polyps, fibroids, endometriosis or a uterine septum are causing your infertility, our physicians may recommend surgery to correct the problem.
- A hysteroscopy can diagnose and treat uterine problems. During this minimally invasive procedure, one of our Austin obgyns inserts a hysteroscope into the uterus to get a clear view of the uterine cavity, the openings of the Fallopian tubes and the cervix. During the procedure, if our physicians discover uterine fibroids or polyps, they can attach surgical instruments to the hysteroscope and remove them.
- Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgery that allows our Austin obgyns to view the uterus, Fallopian tubes and ovaries. Laparoscopy is also a diagnostic and treatment tool. During a laparoscopy, our physicians can treat several possible causes of infertility, including endometriosis, fibroids and Fallopian tube blockages.
From counseling to fertility treatment options, our physicians are here to help you conceive. Contact us for an appointment.
