If you are able to answer yes to any of the following general questions, we suggest meeting with one of our fertility specialists in Albany or Syracuse:

Is your period irregular, painful, or absent?
Changes in your menstrual cycle, including a lack thereof, or painful periods can serve as early warning signs for infertility. Periods that last longer than a week and cycles that are over 38 days in length are signs of ovulation issues. Irregular ovulation can be a sign of PCOS or endometriosis. A fertility specialist at Boston IVF in Albany or Syracuse will help diagnose and/or manage either condition.

Have you had unsuccessful fertility treatment in the past?
We routinely offer second opinions for patients who have undergone fertility treatment elsewhere in the past. In addition to running a full fertility audit of your past test results and fertility treatments, our team will create a comprehensive report and strategy for your future care.

Do you have abnormal semen analysis results?
40% of all infertility cases are in part due to male-factor infertility. Abnormal semen analysis results are often due to low or poor quality sperm count, which makes conceiving difficult.

Have you had more than one miscarriage?
Recurrent miscarriage affects 1-3% of all couples. Most miscarriages are caused by advanced age and/or chromosomal abnormalities. Abnormalities may be caused by age or genetic family history. Hormonal problems, such as diabetes or thyroid disease are also common causes of recurrent miscarriage. Our fertility doctors will utilize innovative diagnostic tests and PGT-A genetic screening technologies to identify and remedy the cause of a miscarriage.
