About 15 percent of couples are affected by infertility. Couples who are unable to conceive within a year of trying are considered to be struggling with infertility. Fortunately, treatment options are available. Caritas Women’s Care at Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Group Sugar Land offers NaProTECHNOLOGY™, which identifies the cause of fertility issues and addresses the problem.
Causes of Fertility Problems
Infertility can be caused by a multitude of factors. For women, fertility decreases with age, beginning in the late 20s and decreasing more quickly after age 35. Health conditions, including obesity and thyroid disorders, can also play a role in fertility issues. The effects of gynecological disorders can make it difficult to conceive; polyps, fibroids, and other complications can damage the female reproductive organs. Controllable infertility risk factors include smoking and alcohol use. It’s important to note that one-third of infertility cases are traced back to the male.
How NaProTECHNOLOGY Can Help
NaProTECHNOLOGY™ helps identify the underlying cause of infertility in a woman’s reproductive system and corrects these abnormalities to increase her chances of natural pregnancy. Seventy percent of couples who use this treatment option are able to successfully become pregnant. Experts have recognized it as a safer and more effective alternative to other medical fertility treatments.
In addition to providing a solution to infertility, NaProTECHNOLOGY™ can also be used to treat premenstrual syndrome, ovarian cysts, postpartum depression, endometriosis, and other gynecological conditions.
