How do I know if I have fertility issues?

Around 10% of women in their reproductive years have difficulty getting or staying pregnant. In order to diagnose you with infertility, we must first evaluate and assess your unique situation. This assessment involves a thorough medical history, a detailed physical examination, blood tests, as well as some other diagnostic tests to determine fertility.
