Evaluation & Treatment of Infertility
Common Signs & Causes of Infertility in Arlington Heights
Infertility is defined as the inability to become pregnant despite trying regularly over the course of approximately a year. From a history of irregular or painful periods to repeated miscarriages, there are numerous signs that may point to infertility, other than simply not being able to become pregnant. If you believe that infertility is preventing pregnancy, you may want to consider seeking a diagnosis or develop an individualized fertility treatment plan with the help of our Arlington Heights obstetrics and gynecology center.
Some of the common causes of infertility in women include:
- Hormonal problems
- Scarred ovaries
- Premature menopause
- Unruptured follicles
- Previous surgeries
- Ectopic pregnancies
- Congenital defects
- Behavioral factors, such as diet and exercise, smoking, alcohol, or drug use
