About Infertility

Did you know that an estimated one out of eight couples trying to start a family encounters fertility challenges? If you are struggling with this medical condition, please know that you are not alone, treatment is available, and we are here to help.

There are many positive steps you can take as you start to sort out your options. Educate yourself on the causes of infertility and the wide range of treatment options available. Take care of your physical health and emotional well-being by eating right, exercising and getting enough sleep. Seek support groups to handle the emotions that accompany infertility. And, most importantly, find a physician and facility that you feel comfortable with. At Michigan Center for Fertility & Women’s health, our team keeps on top of the latest advances in assisted reproductive technology and tailors treatment plans for each patient’s situation.
