For most people, having a child is easy. It just happens when they least expect it. Most aren’t even actively trying. For someone like you, it is another story. You have been trying for too long to have a baby without any success. You have tried to be patient. The year mark has come and gone. It’s time to find out why. If you need to pursue treatments, our infertility doctor can help you to explore your options. The right treatment is waiting for you.
What Are Your Treatment Options for Infertility?
In order to find out what the best infertility option for you, the first step is to discover the root of your problem. Men can expect an examination. Sperm must be analyzed as well. Women can expect a physical, a pelvic evaluation, an ultrasound to study their reproductive organs, and a blood test to check hormone levels. Our infertility doctor will also talk to you about your sexual history. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to treat blockages in the reproductive system. Antibiotics may be necessary if there is any type of infection that has affected your reproductive system. You may need hormone treatments to improve your chance of having a baby. If these treatments aren’t enough, consider more options.
What Else Can You Do to Treat Infertility?
If hormones, antibiotics, or surgery are not the answer, do not give up hope. Our infertility doctor will explore all of your options. You may be able to have your partner’s sperm placed in your uterus when you are ready to ovulate. If in vitro fertilization is the answer, your egg and your partner’s sperm will be collected. They will become fertilized in the lab. After it has been allowed to develop for a few days, it will be inserted into the uterus.
In some cases, the egg and sperm may be placed in one of a woman’s fallopian tubes. This method is chosen when there is a blockage in a different part of the fallopian tube that has blocked the egg from being released or has not allowed the sperm to reach it. Once the sperm and egg are fertilized and create an embryo, it should continue to move down to the uterus where it can become implanted.
