Diagnosing Infertility

Have the best chance of getting pregnant

Infertility is the inability to become pregnant after 6 to 12 months of unprotected sex. This emotionally devastating disease affects 1 in 8 couples.

Here at Coastal Fertility Specialists we believe in an evidence-based approach to infertility diagnosis and treatment. Once we identify your diagnosis—the causes of your fertility problems—we will recommend the most cost effective infertility treatments customized for you.
