Effective methods of infertility treatment

Can not get pregnant? Are you diagnosed with "infertility"? Let's see what options you can have for treating this problem.

There are several such options, ranging from methods of treating infertility, involving minimal invasive intervention (that is, penetrating the body from the outside), and ending with more progressive methods of abdominal surgery. Perhaps you decide to immediately seek help from specialists in IVF (in vitro fertilization), despite the fact that this procedure is very expensive. Usually, people who make such a decision are guided by the desire to become pregnant as soon as possible. But there are cheaper, but no less effective, methods of treatment, such as taking medications to increase fertility. It is proved that about 90% of infertile couples after treatment with such drugs were able to become pregnant either alone or with semen insemination during the year.

Treatment with drugs to increase fertility

If you suffer from a hormonal imbalance, or you have a lack of any specific hormones detected during the blood test for hormones, then these drugs can become a real life-saving circle for your reproductive system!


They can help even when it comes to "unexplained infertility", that is when the cause of your problem with conception remains unclear. Also, these drugs are combined with other types of treatment, for example, such as artificial insemination.

Artificial insemination

This method of treating infertility is used in cases when your partner's spermatozoa need help in the process of reaching the ovum. The essence of the method is that at the right time a concentrated dose of sperm is injected into your uterus, which significantly increases your chances of pregnancy.

Surgical intervention

If you have problems such as obstruction of the fallopian tubes, endometriosis, fibroids, genetic defects or ovarian cysts, performing a minor surgical procedure (laparoscopic intervention) will help not only to accurately diagnose the problem, but also to provide the necessary treatment, thus giving you a chance on the conception of a child.

Of course, there are cases when laparoscopy is not able to correct the problem, and then a woman needs a more extensive operation, requiring a cut of the abdominal cavity. But in most cases, surgical intervention is the only chance for pregnancy.

Auxiliary reproductive technologies (ART)

If the cause of your infertility is the obstruction of the fallopian tubes, and your partner's low quality of sperm (especially a small amount of sperm), the above methods of treatment may not bring the desired result. In such cases, modern reproductive technologies, such as IVF, ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection), embryo loading, etc., can help you.

If your age (especially if you decide to become pregnant after 40 years ), the quality of the eggs or the functioning of the ovaries does not allow you to become pregnant using your own eggs, then you may need the help of an egg donor. If you do not want (or can not because of health) to bear a child, you can use the services of a surrogate mother.

What are the chances of getting pregnant after the treatment?

About a third of all the procedures of assisted reproductive technologies are completed by conceiving a child. When using donated eggs or donor sperm, the chances of conception are 50/50.

Your chances of becoming pregnant depend not only on the treatment chosen but also on your preparedness for conceiving and bearing a child. Make changes to your lifestyle, such as stopping smoking, drugs, and alcohol, limiting caffeine intake, improving nutrition, adjusting weight (if you are overweight, then you may need a very long time to get you to get pregnant - until you lose those extra pounds!). By the way, as far as preparing your partner for conception, this question is no less relevant for him.

Also, your success depends largely on your age and health status. Women over 35 years of age are more difficult to get pregnant, and pregnancy after 30 years is given with greater difficulty than for young women.

Indicators of the effectiveness of infertility treatment procedures

Your doctor is likely to tell you about the performance indicators for various treatments for infertility. But what do they mean and can they be trusted ?!

Throughout the treatment you should be given statistics on such issues:

  • What are your chances of getting pregnant after the treatment?
  • What is the birth rate of healthy children? (be prepared for the fact that the fertility rate is always lower than the statistics on the onset of pregnancies, since the factor of miscarriages, ectopic pregnancies, etc.) is not excluded.
  • What is the probability of the birth of twins?
  • How common are cases of ectopic pregnancy and miscarriage?
  • How many attempts does IVF take to get pregnant?

If you still doubt about choosing a particular treatment method or about the clinic in which you will be treated, try to collect as much information about it as possible. Study statistical indicators for each type of treatment, evaluate the reputation of the clinic, talk with former patients, ask the opinion of independent doctors about this medical institution.

In advance, prepare for the fact that infertility treatment is not a cheap question! The average cost of assisted reproductive technologies is about 10-12 thousand dollars per attempt. In addition, keep in mind that no method of infertility treatment guarantees 100% result, so when choosing a specific procedure, weigh the pros and cons.
