Dartmouth-Hitchcock Nashua

Every couple who comes to the office presents a unique situation.

During the first visit, an extensive evaluation is taken to determine reproductive difficulties. A complete medical history of you and your family, appropriate examinations and tests determine the cause or causes of your infertility and pregnancy loss and develop a course of treatment which may include lifestyle changes, medication, surgery or assisted reproductive technology. Sometimes a cause of infertility is not known.

About 15 percent of couples in the United States are infertile. Even for healthy, young couples, the odds are about 20 percent that a woman will conceive during any one menstrual cycle. This figure starts to decline in a woman’s late twenties and decreases even more after age 35. A man’s infertility will also decline with age but not at such an early age.

We credit our success to expert use of technology, our dedicated physicians, our nursing staff and the close partnerships we keep with our patients. Year after year, our pregnancy rates for advanced reproductive technologies are higher than the national average.
