Dr. Marcelo Barrionuevo, M.D., was recently interviewed for a television news segment where he discussed the possible causes of infertility and the latest available treatment options. As one of the top fertility specialists in south Florida, Dr. Barrionuevo cited that infertility may be caused by a variety of factors. He pointed that out that pregnancy complications are as different as the women who walk into his office. Infertility issues such as if a patient has cancer or has an odd shaped uterus, were highlighted in the segment. However, he pointed out that the #1 issue contributing to infertility is a woman's biological clock. Dr.
Barrionuevo also touched upon three treatment options:  Oral or injected medications, intrauterine insemination (IUI), and in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Also featured in the segment was Tamika Luciano, a patient of Dr. Barrionuevo who has suffered, yet, successfully overcome infertility under Dr. Barrionuevo's care. Ms. Luciano openly discussed how she lost both of her fallopian tubes while trying to get pregnant, and how she has achieved pregnancy via IVF treatment.
