Fertility Treatment Options & Information on Infertility


Conception and pregnancy depend on a number of female and male factors ranging from anatomy, hormone production and timing. A problem in any of these areas with the male or female may result in some form of infertility. For this reason, it is important to understand the normal reproductive functions in both men and women.

The pages in this section are intended to help you, the patient, better understand the infertility options, as well as the procedures, medications, and terminology involved with your infertility options. In this section, you will find a glossary, useful resources, and injection training videos, in addition to a description of the medication you may take. If you still have questions, do not hesitate to contact your assigned nurse practitioner for more information on infertility.
