Dr. David Adamson:
My name is David Adamson. I am a reproductive endocrinologist and surgeon in San Jose and Paulo Alto, California where I am Director of Fertility Physicians of Northern California, and we provide assistance to couples who would like to have babies and are struggling with the problem of infertility.
Infertility or the difficulty conceiving is a problem associated with both women and men. In about half of the cases we see the women has the primary issue or problem, but in one-quarter of cases it’s primarily a problem with the men and in one-quarter of the cases, both the men and the women have issues that are creating the problem of conceiving.
