Obstetrics and Infertility Q & A

What obstetrics services are available?

To monitor you and your baby’s health throughout your pregnancy, Dr. Bendell offers routine obstetrics care, including monthly, in-office evaluations, at The Women’s Center. 

Throughout the different stages of your pregnancy, he carefully tracks your baby’s growth and development, while providing you with resources to improve your diet, stay physically fit, and get ready for labor and delivery. If you have existing health issues, Dr. Bendell ensures your condition is well-controlled and doesn’t interfere with your pregnancy.

In addition to routine pregnancy check-ups, Dr. Bendell offers on-site technologies to monitor your health and the development of your baby, such as:

  • Blood glucose testing
  • 3D and 4D ultrasounds
  • Genetic screenings 
  • Fetal biometry and testing

Dr. Bendell also specializes in high-risk pregnancies for moms-to-be of advanced age, who have existing health conditions or are expecting multiple babies. For pregnant teens, Dr. Bendell focuses on reducing risk factors for pregnancy complications through his customized, high-risk pregnancy services. 

When should I seek treatment for infertility?

If you’ve been trying to become pregnant for 12 months or longer through unprotected sex without results, Dr. Bendell offers comprehensive, on-site evaluations and testing for women and their male partners. If you’re over the age of 35, you should seek infertility assistance after six months of trying to conceive a child without success.

In addition to reviewing you and your partner’s overall health, Dr. Bendell provides on-site infertility services like:

  • Semen analysis
  • Ovulation induction
  • Intrauterine insemination (partner or donor sperm)

Dr. Bendell takes an integrative approach to treating infertility. Based on the results of your diagnostic evaluation, he can recommend the next step towards achieving a healthy, successful pregnancy. 

Will I need surgery to treat infertility?

Treatment for infertility depends on your existing health, the health of your partner, and your overall family planning decisions. 

If you wish to become pregnant but have previously had a tubal ligation, Dr. Bendell can discuss your options for reversing the procedure to help you achieve a successful pregnancy. 

Additionally, you may need surgery to treat existing reproductive issues that interfere with your ability to get pregnant or support a viable pregnancy. Dr. Bendell uses laparoscopic and robot-assisted surgical techniques to address fibroids, uterine adhesions, endometriosis, and complications of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). 

Is it beneficial to receive obstetrics and infertility services from one doctor?

Yes. Because Dr. Bendell is familiar with your health history and issues with infertility, he can provide you with consistent care when you’re expecting your baby. This type of care also ensures you have the support and guidance you need when planning future pregnancies.
