Secondary infertility. What are treatment options?

Depends on the cause. First we do tests to find the cause(s) - diminished ovarian reserve (low egg supply), hormonal issues, blocked tubes, polyps or fibroids inside the uterus, or sperm problems. Treatment depends on the results but may be fertility tablets like Clomid (clomiphene) or Letrozole with intrauterine inseminations (iui), injectable medicines and iui, in vitro fertilization (ivf), egg donation, or embryo donation.
