Infertility treatment options at Medical City Plano
When you can't get pregnant, it seems like everyone else can. But you're not alone. As many as one in 10 couples fail to conceive within six to 12 months of trying, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
Medical City Plano can help. Dawn Bankston, M.D., an OB/GYN at Medical City Plano, says about 90 percent of infertile couples have a problem that can be treated. To solve the infertility puzzle, Dr. Bankston and her colleagues employ a variety of diagnostic procedures. These include:
- Lab work to test for hormone irregularities that could interfere with fertility
- Ultrasound imaging to determine if a woman is ovulating
- Hysterosalpingography, an x-ray to show blockages in the fallopian tubes or uterus
- Laparoscopy, an outpatient procedure to look for a condition called endometriosis or pelvic scarring, which could prevent pregnancy
A urologist can also help determine whether the male partner has enough sperm and if they can swim freely. Most of the time, our doctors can treat infertility with drugs or minor surgery. At Medical City Plano, we offer oral and injectable fertility medications that stimulate ovulation, as well as intrauterine insemination (also known as "artificial insemination").

Medical City Plano is allowing immediate, skin-to-skin contact between moms and newborns brought into the world via C-section.
There are numerous documented benefits associated with immediate skin-to-skin contact, including regulating body temperature and heart rate, controlling anxiety, and an increased chance of successful breast feeding.
