Reproductive Endocrinology

Infertility affects about 10-15 percent of the population. Technological and scientific advances in the area of assisted reproductive care offer more options to maximize the chances of achieving a successful pregnancy.

Couples unable to conceive and women not able to carry a baby to term have a reassuring variety of options available to them. From diagnosis through medical and surgical treatment, Chester County Hospital helps couples discover causes and pursue solutions in a warm, informative, and supportive setting.

Infertility can be caused by any of the following:

  • Ovulatory disorder
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Tubal disease
  • Premature ovarian failure
  • Male factor
  • Unexplained infertility

Diagnosis and Treatment

Diagnostic tests can locate the root cause of reproductive issues and help determine the method most likely to produce a successful result. Should a woman experience difficulty conceiving, she can undergo an initial infertility assessment with her gynecologist who can then administer ultrasound evaluations, laparoscopies, ovulation induction, and intrauterine insemination.

Chester County Hospital offers many options in Reproductive Medicine. Services available for overcoming infertility can include:

  • In vitro fertilization (IVF) - Eggs retrieved from the mother are placed in a laboratory culture dish with sperm from the father for fertilization.
  • Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) - Sperm is injected directly into an egg, a laboratory procedure used largely in male factor infertility.
