The most common causes of infertility are male factors, ovulatory dysfunction, and mechanical factors (like tubal damage). A significant percentage of infertility is unexplained (where no cause is found).

At Women's Health Consultants, the recommended workup usually involves a history and physical exam, blood work, an assessment of the uterus and fallopian tubes, and a semen analysis. Reversible causes of infertility can then be treated. In more complicated cases, patients are referred to a reproductive endocrinologist, who is a fellowship-trained specialist in infertility.
