Common Fertility Treatments
Since hormonal disturbances can lead to infertility, hormone therapy can help jump start both ovulation and sperm production, thus improving the odds of conception. Since administering hormone drugs is a minimally-invasive treatment, this method is often the first course of action in treating infertility. If hormone therapy fails to yield successful results, more invasive procedures may be necessary.
Surgery can increase the chances of conception by removing any obstacles that prevent ovulation and/or fertilization. For example, surgery can remove blockages in the fallopian tubes, ovarian cysts and scar tissue left by endometriosis or other illnesses.
This procedure is used when, for whatever reason, fertilization is prevented. For example, even though ovulation is present, a tilted uterus or low sperm count can prevent sperm from reaching the egg. Artificial insemination works by inserting sperm directly in the uterus. If the male partner’s sperm isn’t viable, donor sperm may be used.
In vitro fertilization, or IVF, is typically used when other methods of conception have failed to provide results. Depending on factors that include age and overall health, in vitro has a relatively high success rate. For example, women under the age of 35 have a 30 to 35 percent chance of conceiving through IVF.
Before IVF begins, fertility drugs are often administered. These medications will ensure the proper hormonal levels which will promote ovulation and sperm production. Next, the female’s eggs are removed via abdominal incision. The eggs are then taken to a laboratory and combined with healthy sperm. Once the eggs have been fertilized in a laboratory setting, the prepared embryos are then inserted into the uterus. In cases of successful IVF, at least one of the embryos implants itself in the uterine lining, resulting in conception.
Aside from the extraction of eggs, IVF typically requires no anesthesia or sedation. Some women may experience mild discomfort, but most cite IVF as a relatively painless procedure. Following an in vitro fertilization, women are instructed to look for signs of pregnancy and, after a couple weeks, a pregnancy test is usually taken in order to determine conception.
Because IVF involves the use of more than one egg, the likelihood of multiple births is increased. This can pose health risks in some women, especially those over the age of 35. However, the IVF procedure is highly personalized and measures are often taken to decrease the risks associated with multiple births.
Although infertility can be frustrating, the methods listed above are commonly used to promote healthy conception. With the information provided here, couples are better equipped at understanding their options and taking the appropriate steps in achieving parenthood.
