Common Causes for Female Infertility 

Infertility Testing

The first step for any fertility patient is to discuss common causes for female infertility with our doctors, and then assess specific, possible causes. At Houston Fertility Center in Houston, TX, we work with each patient and their insurance to determine the means of diagnostic testing that is both most cost-effective and beneficial to your treatment plan. 

Some patients arrive at Houston Fertility Center with usable test results from their primary care OB/Gyn. Houston Fertility Center staff frequently collaborates with referring physicians from all over Texas, even for patients who choose IVF as their treatment.
