Compassionate care for couples having difficulty conceiving

Infertility is the inability to get pregnant or conceive, typically after one year of unprotected sex. There are a number of factors that may contribute to infertility, so visiting a specialist may help.

Before you begin treatment at Baylor Scott & White Health, your physician on the medical staff will explore all available options and help you decide on your treatment path, which could include assisted reproductive technologies.
