There are many reasons that someone may experience infertility. Determining the root cause will also help us decide which treatment options are going to be the most effective. Here are some of the most common types of fertility treatments:
Medication: Drugs are often recommended for men and women if there is a hormonal imbalance or if there is a lack of certain hormones that are causing problems conceiving. In some instances, medications may also help even if the cause is unknown.
Intrauterine insemination: This is a great option if sperm just needs a little boost to get to the egg. During insemination, sperm is inserted into the uterus during the appropriate time to increase your chances of becoming pregnant.
Surgery: If you are suffering from ovarian cysts, endometriosis or damaged/blocked fallopian tubes this can also affect your fertility. By performing surgery we can often correct and repair these issues to increase your chances of getting pregnant.
Assisted Reproductive Technology: If other issues are making it impossible for the sperm and egg to unite and other options haven’t proved effective, then a fertility specialist may recommend assisted reproductive technology. One of the most common types of ART is in vitro fertilization.
