Reproductive Endocrinology & Fertility


At Magee-Womens, our scientists are offering hope to some of the toughest infertility cases, even providing options that preserve fertility in children exposed to chemotherapy or other treatments that may affect their future fertility.

Spotlight on: INFERTILITY

Spotlight on: INFERTILITY

About 10–15% of couples are infertile.

Premature Ovarian Failure affects one in 100 women. Symptoms include:

  • Loss of menstrual cycles
  • Night sweats
  • Infertility

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common cause of infertility, affecting one in 10 women. A history of PCOS may increase the risk of:

  • Gestational diabetes
  • Preeclampsia
  • Miscarriages


  • We are developing technology designed to understand, diagnose, and (in the future) repair the genetic causes of infertility.
  • We are providing options to preserve the fertility in young boys and girls exposed to chemotherapy.
  • We are tackling the toughest fertility challenges to help more couples who are struggling to conceive.

Clinical Research & Trials

For over two decades, we have dedicated our clinical research studies and clinical trials to improving the health care of women, men, and infants everywhere. Our research would not be possible without the generous participation of many study volunteers.
