What Are MIIPs? / Female Infertility
I am having trouble getting pregnant.
You are not alone. In the U.S., 1 in 7 couples has problems with fertility. That’s up to 3 million couples who want to start a family but cannot get pregnant on their own. In about 20 to 40% of women, infertility is caused by blocked fallopian tubes. Your doctor may send you for a minimally invasive, image-guided procedure (MIIP) to evaluate your fallopian tubes and open them up, if necessary.
