The first time you meet with Dr. Stoelk, you will understand why his patients trust him. While others might jump right in with expensive testing and procedures, Dr. Stoelk begins by listening carefully to you. By understanding your needs first, he can often ascertain whether you simply need basic fertility guidance or whether more comprehensive fertility testing is needed to zero in faster. Patients of Dr. Stoelk are not rushed in and out of the office. He explains the situation clearly and takes the time to answer your questions.
Comprehensive fertility testing, much of it on-site, leads to accurate diagnosis of your specific problem and then to the latest treatments for women and men to overcome the problems you face. We treat all barriers to pregnancy including female infertility, male infertility, recurrent miscarriages, endometriosis, and hormonal disorders.
Ovulation Testing helps pinpoint one of the frequent causes of infertility and miscarriages: ovulation problems. Ultrasound and hormone testing are critical to understanding how to use the best medications to correct these problems, maximizing your chances of success each month. Often, minimal “tweaking” is all that is needed.
Other times more aggressive treatment is necessary. Natural hormones (FSH) that stimulate the ovaries, for example, may be given in exaggerated amounts, producing several eggs plus an ideal implantation site.
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is a common, simple treatment for many sperm problems. The results can be very positive. When sperm counts are low, swim poorly or antibodies exist, this process concentrates the sperm and places them directly into the uterus. A greater number of sperm arrive in fallopian tubes to fertilize the egg.
