Dr. Neil Goodman and Dr. Hara Berger are board certified medical endocrinologists specializing in reproductive endocrinology and are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of the causes of infertility.
There is a wide range of conditions that can affect fertility and lead to a couple having difficulty getting pregnant. These problems include issues with ovulation (egg production), age (egg quality and numbers), blockage or other problem within the reproductive track (a structural problem within the uterus or fallopian tubes), and male factor infertility (issues with sperm quality or numbers). The workup includes hormonal imbalances of the thyroid, adrenal or pituitary gland and commonly polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). The accurate diagnosis of what is causing infertility is crucial for deciding on the appropriate treatment options.
Thoroughly evaluating and understanding the cause of a person’s infertility is the key to improving fertility and achieving pregnancy. Many couples do not need Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) or surgery such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) in order to get pregnant. Dr. Goodman and Dr. Berger prioritize understanding the cause of infertility and ensuring it is fully understood and addressed in a logical and appropriate way.
