Facing infertility

By Dr. Fri Mofor-Eta, MD - Pleasant Valley Hospital

Heartache and frustration. That’s what infertility often brings to couples struggling to grow their families. At Pleasant Valley Hospital, we care greatly about the health and happiness of the entire community we serve. That’s why we proudly offer the techniques you need for peace of mind — and real answers — as you try to get pregnant.

Once an initial infertility evaluation is done on both partners, it may be time to consider diagnostic procedures. Using diagnostic laparoscopy and hysteroscopy, we can start to uncover the reasons behind your infertility so we can begin to find solutions. These types of exams can provide answers that a simple external physician examination may not.

Using a fiber optic instrument, a diagnostic laparoscopy allows us to look at the internal pelvic area, including the exterior of your uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. Meanwhile, a diagnostic hysteroscopy provides us with the opportunity to look inside of the uterus. During the diagnostic procedure, if anything abnormal is discovered, we can take the opportunity to fix the problem at that time. Fortunately, because these are outpatient procedures, a disorder can be found and corrected in a timely manner, and you can be on your way with minimal recovery time.

Your OB/GYN team at Pleasant Valley Hospital is specially trained to offer infertility evaluation and treatment. Let us help you find answers so you can not only bring home a new member of your family — but also bring new life into our wonderful community. If you have questions or if you’re ready to keep your family growing, set up an appointment with us by calling 304-857-6503.
