Houston Physicians' Hospital’s Reproductive Endocrinology
Reproductive endocrinology is a sub-specialty of the Obstetrics and Gynecology field. Houston Physicians’ Hospital’s Reproductive Endocrinologists are trained in reproductive medicine and address hormone functions that affect fertility and reproduction in both women and men. Many couples suffering from infertility see a reproductive endocrinologist when deciding upon treatment options. Our doctors can identify the cause of infertility, as well as provide treatment options. However, reproductive endocrinology is not limited to infertility. Those suffering from severe menstrual pain, multiple miscarriages, and even age-related hormonal issues can also benefit from the help of our reproductive endocrinologists.
Reproductive Issues Treated in Webster
Reproductive endocrinology deals with a wide range of reproductive issues, such as:
- Hormonal Disorders
- Menstrual Problems
- Pregnancy Loss
If you have been unable to conceive for over a year, have a history of miscarriage, or suffer from irregular menstrual cycles, it may be time to seek treatment from a reproductive endocrinologist.
Symptoms of Reproductive Endocrinology Problems
The most common symptoms of a reproductive endocrinology problem are:
- Difficulty becoming pregnant
- Early onset of menopause
- Growth delay
If your symptoms persist or are severe, it may be time to seek the help of a Reproductive Endocrinologist.
The most common reason for reproductive issues in women stems from ovulation problems. Medical conditions such as PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) affect the hormone levels that stimulate ovulation. If the hormones are not functioning correctly, ovulation may not occur and cause infertility. Male fertility is most commonly caused by varicoceles, a swelling of the veins in the testicle. When the veins are swollen, sperm quality is reduced and can cause infertility. However, there are many other factors that can play a role in reproductive issues. A reproductive endocrinologist will be able to address the cause of the problem and create a treatment plan that can help.
