Introduction to Infertility
In the accompanying video, Dr. Victoria Snegovskikh, a reproductive endocrinologist at Women & Infants’ Fertility Center, explains the basics of infertility. This includes types of infertility, the number of people in the general population that are affected, and when it’s appropriate see a fertility doctor.
Infertility affects men and women equally, and it becomes more severe with age, particularly in women. Fortunately, modern advancements in medical technology have provided a host of treatment options for infertility. Specific treatment methods depend on a patient’s test results and diagnosis. The first step in addressing infertility is to schedule an appointment with a trained fertility specialist.
