How often there are cases of infertility?

The desire to have their own child is a natural stage in the relationship of two people who love each other. Nevertheless, fertility depends on many factors – the age of the partners (females especially: their fertility declines with age); hormonal factors, sexual behavior. And unfortunately couples are often faced with problems conceiving a baby. However, even if there is a problem, couples should not give up - there is always a way out, you just need to believe and act.

Infertility treatment - The factors that increase the chance of infertility

Infertility treatment - Can infertility be treated?

If the couple fails to conceive, they should consult with a specialist who deals with this problem. Although the causes of infertility may be many, most of them can be diagnosed and treated.

What happens during the first consultation with the doctor?

The initial consultation involves a conversation with the couple, collection of patient’s medical history, diagnostic ultrasound, and gynecological examination. After that, the doctor makes a plan for further surveys. Because infertility can be both in man and woman, the survey is necessary for both partners.

Usually, the doctor asks the following questions:

  • How long a couple is trying to have a baby?
  • Did the partners have any previous infertility treatment?
  • What types of surveys have been carried out?
  • Do the couple have their own idea of the possible causes of infertility?
  • How the problem of infertility influenced the life of each of the partners (interpersonal relationships, self-conception, work)?
Infertility treatment - In which cases IVF is recommended?

In case if the infertility treatment of woman is ineffective, though eliminated all possible causes, or there is a male factor infertility, which also cannot be corrected, it is recommended the use of assisted reproductive technologies such as in vitro fertilization (IVF).
