Infertility is a condition of your reproductive system; it is a medical problem that usually requires treatment. Loyola’s board-certified specialist in reproductive endocrinology and infertility provides expert care for infertile individuals — women and men alike. The goal of infertility treatment is a successful, healthy pregnancy and the birth of your healthy infant.

Through a series of evaluations for both you and your partner, Loyola provides compassionate, patient-centered infertility care. If you are concerned for any reason about your ability to conceive, make an appointment with a Loyola physician for an evaluation as soon as possible - especially if you are:

  • Over the age of 35
  • Have irregular menstrual cycles
  • Experience painful menstrual periods
  • Have suffered several pregnancy losses
  • Have had a pelvic infection or abdominal surgery
  • Have not conceived after trying for longer than six to 12 months

Loyola provides consultation for a full range of conditions related to infertility, including the following:

  • Anovulation (lack of ovulation, ovulation difficulty)
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endocrine abnormalities (hormones)
  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
  • Repeat miscarriages
  • Unexplained infertility

Just as there are many causes of infertility, there are many types of treatments ranging from hormones to surgery-assisted reproductive technology. Your treatment may include:

  • Medications
  • Surgery to repair or open tubes
  • Tubal reanastomosis (reversal of tubal ligation)
  • Intrauterine insemination (IUI)
  • Other(s)

In addition to providing infertility treatment, Loyola’s experts conduct research on reproductive and infertility issues such as uterine fibroids, endometriosis, predictors of normal fertility, laboratory-assisted fertilization and other in-vitro technology.
