An infertility diagnosis can only be made after a patient under age 35 has tried to conceive for 12 months consecutively without success. For women 35 and up, infertility may be diagnosed after six consecutive months of trying to conceive. While this is defined as infertility, being unable to conceive after trying for six to 12 months doesn't mean that there's no hope of having a baby.
If you're having trouble conceiving, it's important to see Dr. Kong as soon as possible. She can perform a complete evaluation to help her determine the cause of your infertility and design a treatment plan.
Dr. Kong may do a number of different tests to determine why you've been unable to conceive. This may include hormone level tests, a semen analysis for your partner, a pelvic ultrasound, an abdominal ultrasound, and other tests as needed.
Dr. Kong is proud to offer the latest and most effective infertility solutions. Treatments begin with the simplest and most minimally invasive option. She may recommend that you keep track of your ovulation closely and make some simple lifestyle changes.
There are also medication options like hormone therapy and drugs that induce ovulation. While these medications may come with some side effects, most patients feel it's well worth it to increase their odds of conceiving.
If those options aren't successful after a period of trying, you might want to consider intrauterine insemination. Dr. Kong can help you through your infertility journey so you can have the baby you're waiting for. Regardless of the cause of your infertility, Dr. Kong does her best to find a solution for you.
