posted: Dec. 30, 2020.
Your ideal time to pursue parenthood may not always coincide with your body's version of the ideal. The good news is that others have been where you are and have been able to successfully conceive. This has been possible thanks to treatment options available through your South Florida infertility doctors of the Florida Institute for Reproductive Sciences and Technologies, Dr. Minna Selub, Dr. Kimball Pomeroy, and Dr. Nirvika Singh of the in Weston, FL.
A number of medical factors could be making it difficult for you and your partner to conceive. Too often, couples with similar difficulties are given conflicting advice that they should either relax and let nature take its course, or told that they are not putting in enough effort. As if fertility is a mental state they simply have to push themselves through.
Many women are led to believe it is only them that bear the brunt of fertility. It is true that with age a woman's fertility decreases, but after the age of 40, men may experience a decrease in semen volume and mobility.
It's important to remember that not everyone's path to fertility is the same. So treatments may vary widely from couple to couple. At times it may be necessary to combine treatments for improved chances of success.
As the most basic treatment, your fertility doctor can help you develop a schedule for when you are most likely to become pregnant. That is, during ovulation.
Medical insemination of healthy sperm during this time frame may also be an option.
Fertility drugs, and medicine, such as estrogen modulators, may also be prescribed to assist in stimulating ovulation.
When other treatments have not provided the desired result your doctor may recommend in vitro fertilization (IVF). With this method, the egg is fertilized outside the womb, in a lab, after which it is re-implanted.
To correct problems like endometriosis and blocked fallopian tubes, surgery may be required.
