Experiencing the gift of parenthood is precious, and Logansport Memorial Hospital offers hope to families experiencing difficulty getting pregnant.

When to talk to a doctor about starting your family

Infertility is a common problem that affects nearly one in six couples trying to build their family by having a biological child. 

That’s because getting pregnant is a complicated process in which countless factors have to be just right. If you’re having trouble conceiving, you’re not alone! We can help.

Types of infertility

A couple may be considered infertile if they are unsuccessful in achieving pregnancy after one year of regular, unprotected sex or when they keep experiencing miscarriages. 

Infertility can have many causes, and an OB/GYN can work with you to begin to determine which of the countless possible factors may be causing your infertility. 

After diagnosis, we’ll discuss family planning options with you to develop a personalized fertility treatment plan that works best for your family and addresses your specific infertility complications. If you need additional, more advanced help beyond the scope of our office, we can make the referral you need to a fertility specialist.

Infertility treatment options

There are many ways to treat infertility. In some cases, making simple changes to your lifestyle—such as eating a proper diet—will improve your fertility. In other cases, your best option may be infertility treatment drugs, ovulation induction, in vitro fertilization, or surgery.
