Recurrent pregnancy loss
Recurrent pregnancy loss is a special type of fertility problem. While the couple does not have problems conceiving, the woman has difficulties carrying the baby to the time when it can survive outside the uterus. Various blood tests and checking the uterine cavity for abnormalities will sometimes provide clues to the problem. The woman's immune system may produce antibodies against a pregnancy or higher than usual clotting factor levels that can lead to clots in the placenta. Treatments are available.
Endometriosis can cause significant pain and discomfort. Even when fertility is not the current issue, staff at the Gundersen Fertility Center can help with surgical and medical treatment.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
PCOS is a lifetime medical problem that leads to fertility issues. Because of the variable nature of PCOS, a diagnosis and treatment is often multifaceted. To address the complexity of PCOS, Gundersen has created a program for women who have been diagnosed with, or whose symptoms suggest, PCOS. Learn about our Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Program.
