Title: Which Infertility Treatment Is Right for You?

Which Infertility Treatment Is Right for You?
Treatments That Work
  • Its a myth that relaxing or giving it time
    will overcome infertility. Fertility problems are
    medical in nature and can often be treated.
    Worldwide, more than 3 million babies have been
    born through in vitro fertilization (IVF). Other
    treatments are successful, too. At least half of
    couples who seek help will get pregnant.

Spot the Infertility Signs
  • Most couples should visit a doctor after a year
    of trying to conceive. This is the main red flag.
    If a woman is over 35 or has an irregular
    menstrual cycle, and has been trying for 6
    months, its best to see a doctor as soon as
    possible. Her partner should, too.

Common Problems in Men
  • Low Sperm Count
  • Poor Sperm Movement
  • Misshaped Sperm
  • Blocked Sperm Ducts

Top Reasons in Women
  • The most common problems for womens fertility
  • Ovaries don't release eggs regularly
  • Blocked fallopian tubes
  • Problems in the cervix or uterus

Ovulation Problems?
  • If your doctor finds you dont ovulate normally,
    medication can help. The most common choice is
    clomiphene. About half of women who take it will
    get pregnant, usually within three cycles. Be
    aware that you are more likely to get pregnant
    with twins (or more!) because it makes the
    ovaries release more than one egg at a time.

Injectable Hormones
  • If you dont get pregnant after taking clomiphene
    for 3 to 6 months, your doctor may recommend
    fertility hormone shots to encourage ovulation. A
    wide range of these drugs is available, and they
    work well. About half of women who ovulate get
    pregnant taking them. These medications can also
    make you more likely to carry twins or more.

Surgery for Blocked Fallopian Tubes
  • In some women, scars prevent eggs from traveling
    down the fallopian tubes. It can happen if you
    have endometriosis (the overgrowth of tissue that
    lines the uterus, growing in areas it should not)
    or if you have had pelvic infections or surgeries
    in the past. Doctors can attempt take out that
    scar tissue with surgery, which could boost your
    odds of having a baby.

Intrauterine Insemination
  • Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a popular
    procedure for many fertility problems. Doctors
    place the mans sperm into the womans uterus,
    but not into the egg itself, while she ovulates.
    You may also need to take drugs to prompt your
    body to ovulate. IUI is less expensive and
    simpler than IVF (in vitro fertilization), but
    pregnancy rates are much lower.

Sperm Donation
  • Fertile women can choose IUI using sperm from a
    donor. It may take several tries, but pregnancy
    rates are over 80. You and your partner may want
    to see a counselor first, to make sure youre
    both ready to raise a child who is not
    biologically related to the father.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
  • This option offers hope when other infertility
    treatments dont work. It directly combines the
    egg and sperm in a lab. Doctors then place the
    growing embryos in the uterus. IVF can be
    unpleasant and expensive, with an average cycle
    costing 12,400. In 2012, pregnancy rates per IVF
    cycle ranged from 10 for women ages 43-44 to 47
    for women under 35.

ICSI Treatment
  • Doctors can inject the sperm directly into the
    egg in a lab. This technique, called ICSI
    (intracytoplasmic sperm injection), helps when a
    mans sperm count is very low or his sperm dont
    move well. When the fertilized egg is ready, it
    goes into the womans uterus through the normal
    IVF process.

IVF With Egg Donor
  • Women who are over 40, have poor egg quality, or
    have not had success with previous cycles may
    consider an IVF Egg Donor. This involves
    combining the mans sperm with another womans
    donated eggs. If the procedure works, the woman
    becomes pregnant with a child who is biologically
    related to her partner but not herself.

IVF With Blastocyst Transfer
  • In standard IVF, doctors transfer embryos to the
    womb when they reach the two- to eight-cell
    stage. But in this procedure, the embryos grow
    for 5 days first. Doctors call them blastocysts
    at that stage, and they choose the healthiest one
    or two to move to the womans uterus. This
    removes the possibility of triplets and still
    keeps a high success rate.

Surrogacy Process
  • When a woman cannot carry her own pregnancy to
    term, some work with another woman who agrees to
    be a gestational surrogate. Specialists use IVF
    to make embryos with a womans eggs and her
    partners sperm. The surrogate is the one who
    goes through the pregnancy after IVF. But her DNA
    is not involved. The baby will be the biological
    child of both husband and wife.

Tips to Choose a Fertility Clinic
  • Ask plenty of questions about their procedures
    and costs. Make sure they offer the latest
    technologies and involve patients in decisions.
    Infertility treatment is a long-term process, and
    you want to feel comfortable with your choice.
