Infertility Q&A

What are the causes of infertility?

Infertility may be due to underlying factors within either of the partners. Sometimes a combination of problems causes infertility, and in other cases, the cause for infertility is unclear. 

Male infertility may be due to abnormal sperm production or function, damage to sperm related to cancer or cancer treatment, poor sperm delivery, or lifestyle habits like alcohol misuse. 

The primary causes of female infertility include:

  • Irregular ovulation, such as with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Fallopian tube blockages or damage
  • Abnormalities in the cervix or uterus
  • Endometriosis
  • Early menopause
  • Cancer or cancer treatment
  • Scar tissue in the reproductive organs

Carlos Rodriguez Ortiz MD, PA and his team consider all of these possible causes when evaluating your particular case. In most cases of infertility, a couple can still have a healthy pregnancy.

When should I pursue an infertility evaluation?

If you’ve been actively trying to get pregnant for 12 months, but have had no success, it may be time to schedule an infertility appointment with Carlos Rodriguez Ortiz MD, PA, and his team.  

It’s also important to schedule an evaluation after six months if you’re a woman who is 35 or older and trying to get pregnant. Women who’ve had repetitive miscarriages may also seek an infertility evaluation and support.

How do you evaluate infertility?


The team offers comprehensive infertility screenings, including:


  • Diagnostic ultrasound to look for organ abnormalities and check ovulation
  • Laparoscopy to look for abnormal tissue
  • Blood tests to check for hormonal issues or infection
  • Tubal patency evaluation
  • Semen analysis 


Carlos Rodriguez Ortiz MD, PA, and his team may also evaluate you and your partner’s lifestyle habits to see if any factor into your infertility. 

How is infertility treated?

The team helps you tweak your lifestyle to achieve a healthy weight and eat a nutritious diet that supports a healthy body. They can also help you with fertility tracking so you have intercourse on the days most likely to result in conception. 


You may need oral hormones or other medications to stimulate ovulation. Or, you might benefit from artificial insemination. If you have scar tissue or endometriosis, undergoing minimally invasive surgery may increase your chances of conceiving. 

The team can refer you to a reproductive specialist who can offer in vitro fertilization (IVF) and other advanced therapies if you don’t respond to treatments or they aren’t appropriate for your condition.
