Our board certified reproductive endocrinologists offer comprehensive diagnostic testing and proven fertility treatments to help resolve even the most complex causes of infertility. As a result of TFC’s efforts, parents have welcomed 23,000 babies into the world.

When to see a reproductive endocrinologist for female infertility

Your age and symptoms will determine when you should contact a fertility doctor. For example, if you have a history of pelvic inflammatory disease, irregular periods, or uterine fibroids or polyps, you should schedule an appointment with our South Austin fertility doctor now.

If you do not have these issues, TFC recommends that you follow the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) recommendations for when to visit a fertility specialist.

  • Women under 35 should see a fertility specialist after 1 year of trying to conceive.
  • Women over 35 should see a fertility specialist after 6 months of trying to get pregnant.

Identifying the causes of female infertility with fertility testing

There are many causes of female infertility. They range from hormonal conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) to anatomical issues like blocked fallopian tubes.

Infertility testing for women begins by having a conversation with our South Austin fertility doctor about your health history. You will then undergo fertility blood tests, sonograms and nonsurgical tests such as a hysterosalpingogram (HSG). During this time,  your doctor will also order a semen analysis for your partner to rule out male fertility issues.

Treating female fertility issues at TFC

You should not feel discouraged if you are facing female infertility. Fertility treatments like ovulation induction and intrauterine insemination (IUI) can resolve most cases of infertility. Additionally, only a small number of women will need advanced treatments such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) or donor eggs.
