Struggling with Infertility How to Know What Type of Treatment Will Help You the Most

Struggling with Infertility? What Type of Treatments Will Help

Fertility Medication

While it depends on the reason for infertility, one of the first treatments people typically try is to use fertility medications to stimulate ovulation. The most popular medications are Clomiphene, Gonadotropins and Bromocriptine. Clomiphene is designed for women that either have an irregular cycle or simply don’t ovulate. It aids the body in producing more ovulation stimulating hormones, forcing the body to produce mature eggs. Gonadotropins, on the other hand, is the next drug taken if clomiphene doesn’t help the couple to conceive. It comes in two stages in which signals tell the body to produce fertile eggs and then release those eggs. Different from the first two, Bromocriptine is taken if there is a benign tumor on the pituitary gland that reduces natural estrogen levels. While it can take up to a few months to start working, the drug restarts a natural menstrual cycle in the body.

Egg Donor Bank

Using a donor egg is a viable option for several types of women under varying circumstances, but it is a popular choice. Women that suffer from a diminished reserve of eggs might need a donor egg, as well as women who experience the beginning of menopause before they reach age 40. Using a donor egg is also a popular option for women who have genetic diseases that have a high chance of transferring to the child. Using a donor egg will allow the woman to give birth without transferring the disease to the child. Lastly, this is a common choice for women who have previously tried in vitro fertilization without success.
When choosing a donor, you are given the opportunity to peruse the history and medical background of each patron in order to find a match that you are comfortable with. After both donor and recipient receive hormone treatments to force their cycles to match, the donor egg is harvested, fertilized and implanted within the recipient’s womb. Many fertility clinics provide you with the choice between fresh and frozen egg banks depending on whether you plan to get pregnant right away, or would rather wait a while.

Minimal Stimulation IVF

In vitro fertilization is considered an invasive procedure—however, advancements in treatment are making it much less so. It follows the four basic steps of a regular IVF including the stimulation of the ovaries via medicine, retrieval of a mature egg, the fertilization of the egg externally and then placing the fertilized egg back in the womb. Unlike a standard IVF procedure, the ovary stimulation is actually done through oral medication as opposed to numerous injections. Because of this, it costs much less than its counterpart. This type of treatment is typically done for women with damaged fallopian tubes, or those who are partnered with an infertile male find this method to be the most effective.

ZIFT (Zygote Intrafallopian Transfer)

The most invasive of the treatments, this is only suggested to women who are older, or who have severe ovulation problems, so much so that no other method has worked. To begin the process, you take a stimulation drug that causes the ovaries to develop multiple mature eggs coupled with a drug that prevents their release. Your doctor will monitor the maturation of the eggs and then remove them with a needle using the visual guidance of an ultrasound. Like IVF, the egg and sperm are then joined in a dish in a laboratory where doctors can make sure the fertilization begins. One of the eggs is then reinserted in the fallopian tube where it then travels to the uterus and implants itself in the uterus.

No matter the issue, fertilization today is more than just the coupling of a man and woman. Doctors now understand the science behind infertility and have made accessible solutions for couples struggling to conceive. With the help of your doctor, you can determine the underlying issues of your infertility and then decide which treatments will best help you in your quest for a child of your own. By undergoing relatively simplistic procedures, fertilization can occur with a little help from scientific progress.

  2. I’d like to thank Dr.Yun Ye for his help with my infertility and share my success baby story.
    I have been diagnosed with PCOS, having irregular periods and the possibility of not ovulating regularly.
    I was 37 and referred to a fertility specialist.
    I’ve been put on clomid and I’ve had 3 miscarriages and then I could not even get pregnant,
    After spending 2 years with a fertility specialist, I have realized it was time to try something else. I asked to be
    referred to another fertility clinic and while waiting for my appointment,
    I decided to give acupunture a try. I was been referred to a Traditional Chinese Medicine doctor, Dr. Yun Ye,
    by someone who was in her early 40s, i got His Traditional Medicine and then got pregnant, it worked like magic,
    I was hesitant to try it at first and I had had Dr. Ye’s contact information for some time before I contacted him.
    After 3 months of herbal treatment (cooking dried herbs and drinking the herbal tea 2x a day), herbal tincture,
    my ultrasound report read “no polycystic ovaries”. I continued with acupuncture and herbal tinctures for a few more months
    and after 2 months of cycle monitoring with Dr. Ye, I got pregnant.
    During my pregnancy I continued to take herbal tinctures that are safe in pregnancy, I felt great.
    I hope to try to get pregnant again soon with the help of Dr. Ye.
    I would like to pass my experience and information to all women who are struggling with infertility,
    with or without PCOS or any other diagnoses, and who are interested in finding out more.
    There is a chance that you can get pregnant naturally.
    All you need to do is bring your body in balance and that is what Traditional Chinese Medicine does,
    Unlike Western medicine, it does not fix one problem and create another in your body,
    it installs balance to the whole body.”
