If you have been trying to get pregnant but cannot, this can be very difficult for you and your spouse to deal with. Fortunately, you have some options to try to help you become pregnant so you can have a beautiful baby. Below are three of these options so you can determine if they would work well for you.
You can be prescribed fertility drugs to you to help you become pregnant. You will be prescribed hormone treatments or medicine to start with. These work well if you have problems with ovulation, such as not ovulating at all or have irregular ovulation. This is because these drugs stimulate your ovulation.
One thing to consider with this type of treatment is you have a higher chance of having a multiple pregnancy. This could possibly pose health risks to the fetuses and you. You should also consider if you could afford to have more than one baby as you could possibly have twins, triplets, or quadruplets.
In Vitro Fertilization
With in vitro fertilization (IVF), sperm and eggs are combined in a laboratory. The lab technician puts the eggs and sperm in a glass dish so the sperm will fertilize your eggs. The doctor will do this by inserting a needle through your vagina. The needle needs to go in far enough to get to your follicles and ovary. The eggs are then aspirated through the needle. The doctor will remove several eggs in case one treatment does not work.
If you have problems producing eggs, you can use donor eggs instead. The sperm is taken from your spouse. If they cannot produce enough sperm, donor sperm can also be used. Once the egg is fertilized, the doctor inserts it into your womb.
If you want a more natural treatment, you can try acupuncture fertility. Many women use this type of treatment along with fertility treatments to increase the chances of you becoming pregnant. Acupuncture increases blood flow to your reproductive organs, as well as reduces stress. It is thought that reducing stress will also increase your hormone levels.
During the acupuncture procedure, the acupuncturist inserts thin, sterile needles at certain points on your skin. The needles only go in a little so this is not painful for most people, nor is it dangerous.
Talk with your doctor about these treatment options and they can give you much more information.Share
