Recurrent Pregnancy Loss Treatment in Dallas
Few things are as exciting or life-changing as receiving a positive pregnancy test when you’ve trying to conceive! Unfortunately, many couples experience feelings of devastation when a miscarriage occurs or an IVF cycle fails. After investing so much time, energy, emotion, and money into your conception journey, it’s important to uncover the causes of your pregnancy loss. Our male fertility specialists at Posterity Health can help you determine if sperm quality is a contributing factor and provide guidance for an effective recurrent pregnancy loss treatment near you.
Recurrent Pregnancy Loss: What Is It and How Can It Be Treated?
Recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) is clinically defined as experiencing two or more miscarriages or one failed in-vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle.
Numerous factors may contribute to RPL, such as hormonal issues, egg quality or uterine lining. Sperm quality can also be a major contributing factor for RPL. In a majority of cases, factors from both partners contribute to the pregnancy loss.
To successfully carry a baby to term, sperm quality is important. Male infertility factors like poor sperm morphology (i.e., the size and shape) and fragmentation of DNA inside the sperm, can lead to recurrent pregnancy loss. Treatment is available for many of these infertility factors and many can actually be reversed.
At Posterity heatlh, we offer a recurrent pregnancy loss consultation service that will assess for male factor infertility. It includes a full fertility evaluation for the male partner and an opportunity to discuss your situation in-depth with one of our specialists.
