McAllen Womens Specialist - Women's Specialist of McAllen - Dr. Carlos Almaguer




Are you having trouble conceiving? Are you disappointed each month when your period starts? You are not alone- between 10 to 14 % of couples will experience fertility problems at some point. Infertility is a very sensitive issue for a couple, one which can cause physical and emotional stress. That is why it is important to speak with a doctor experienced in evaluating and treating infertility.

The good news is medical technology now offers more answers and treatment options to men and women trying to conceive a child, including hormonal treatments and ovulation induction. Dr. Almaguer has significant experience in treating infertility. Infertility treatment starts with an evaluation with your obgyn.

Approximately 30% of infertility is due to a female factor and 30% is due to a male factor. In the balance of the cases, infertility results from problems in both partners or the cause of the infertility cannot be explained. Often there are no signs or symptoms associated with an infertility problem. Listening to your body and getting regular checkups will help to detect a problem.

It is recommended that couples with no known reproductive health problems seek medical advice if they have not conceived in 12 months. However, if a woman is 35 or older, has menstrual or ovulatory irregularities, known tubal problems, a history of miscarriages, diabetes, high-blood pressure, or thyroid conditions, she should consult an obgyn much earlier inthe process, probably at the beginning. Early detection and treatment of a problem are often critical in achieving successful pregnancy outcomes later. Calling the office is the first step in treatment at 956-668-9100.
