When should you consult with a fertility specialist?
Infertility is a time-sensitive medical issue. Don’t put off your fertility journey until the “perfect time,” because when it comes to infertility, the ideal moment to act is now.
How long have you been attempting this?
Have you been trying to conceive for over a year and have had no success? Then chances are you’ll require medical help to conceive effectively. This window is narrower for couples over the age of 35, who should seek professional guidance after 6 months of attempting.
What aspects should be recognized while planning a family?
- Age: Are you above or under the age of 35?
- Family History of Chronic Illnesses or Early Menopause: Do you have a family history of chronic diseases or premature menopause?
- Reproductive Problems: Do you have PCOS, fallopian tube/uterine issues, endometriosis, thyroid abnormalities (for women), erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, or sperm disorders (for men)?
- Injuries/Surgeries: Have you had any injuries or surgeries on your reproductive organs?
- Cancer: Have you been diagnosed with cancer or have you had cancer treatment?
- Personality: Do you smoke or drink? Are you obese or underweight?
Why should you not postpone treatment?
- Older age is associated with an increased chance of miscarriage.
- Fertility screening examinations spread out over many days/lead to more testing
- Before beginning therapy, you may need to make certain lifestyle modifications.
- The therapy may need many tries or may be postponed.
What is the next appropriate step?
To expedite your fertility journey, IVF Fertility gives you a couple of screening packages. Its components are as follows:
- An appointment with your selected IVF Fertility Center for a fertility consultation
- Female partner screening tests: Ultrasound scan and Anti-Mullerian Hormone.
- Male partner screening tests: Sperm analysis and HBA1C
This set of preliminary tests will aid in the diagnosis of underlying infertility difficulties and will help you make an educated choice about the next step ahead. You should pass clinical laboratory blood tests and medical testing.
Is infertility reversible?
Infertility cannot be cured, however, it may be reversed in certain situations. At the Fertility clinic, we provide four primary therapy options:
- Ovulation induction (OI): The use of drugs to regulate or restore ovulation.
- Intrauterine Insemination (IUI): A minimally invasive treatment in which cleaned sperm is directly placed in the uterus of the female partner to increase the chances of fertilization.
- 3. Self-cycle IVF: A process in which the wife’s mature eggs and the husband’s healthy sperm are extracted and combined in a lab for fertilization.
- Self-cycle ICSI: A treatment that uses a thin glass needle to inject a single, healthy sperm into an egg in order to overcome the limits of low sperm/egg quality.
Is infertility caused by stress, or is stress caused by infertility?
If you have been trying for a baby for a long time or have been diagnosed with infertility, it may be causing or contributing to your stress. This is particularly true for ladies. They are stressed every month because they are attempting to conceive.
Couples experiencing infertility are recommended to consult with therapists who help people and couples experiencing infertility. Many fertility clinics now include in-house therapists who assist couples in discussing the emotional issues they confront throughout infertility and associated procedures like IVF, IUI, and ICSI.
