About Infertility

At Fertility Institute of San Diego, part of our exceptional success is based on the fact that Dr. Hosseinzadeh takes the time to closely listen and assess what is causing your infertility.

What is Infertility?

Infertility can be caused by a variety of diseases and medical conditions and affects about one in six men and women of reproductive age. Regardless of the cause, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and other leading reproductive professional organizations recommend seeing an infertility specialist if you meet the following conditions or circumstances:

  • You are a woman under 35 years of age and have been unsuccessful getting pregnant after one year of unprotected sexual intercourse.
  • You are a woman over 35 and have been trying to conceive for six months or more.
  • You have experienced two or more miscarriages.
  • You have been diagnosed with a medical condition such as endometriosis or polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) or have a male partner with a low sperm count that might impair your ability to get pregnant.

Common Causes of Infertility

A comprehensive evaluation, which typically takes one completed menstrual cycle, can usually uncover one or more factors that may be reducing fertility. These may be female factors, male factors or both.

Female infertility can be caused by:

  • Age related infertility or decreased ovarian reserve
  • Problems with irregular ovulation or absence of ovulation
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome
  • Premature ovarian failure
  • Hormone imbalances such as prolactin disorders
  • Blockage or scarring of the fallopian tubes
  • Pelvic adhesions
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Recurrent miscarriage (RPL)- clotting disorders; structural, chromosomal and infectious causes
  • Unexplained infertility

Male infertility can be caused by:

  • Azoospermia or complete absence of sperm
  • Oligospermia or low sperm count
  • Teratospermia or increased number of abnormally shaped sperm
  • Congenital absence of the vas deferens
  • Genetic disease or chromosomal abnormality
  • Prior vasectomy
