There are many reasons why you could possibly be having trouble becoming pregnant. These reasons include but are not limited to ovulating problems, blocked or damaged tubes, unexplained infertility, or male infertility.
Fortunately, there are a few medical procedures that can help.
Ovulation problems are most commonly treated with oral medication such as Clomiphene, which stimulates the ovaries to release eggs. This drug is to be taken during the first 5 days of the menstrual cycle and must be repeated for 3-6 cycles.
If ovulation is not reached by the 6th cycle, then it is unlikely that pregnancy will occur using Clomiphene.
If you suffer from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) you may find it useful to start a Metformin treatment, which helps regulate menstrual cycles, start ovulation, and lower the risk of a miscarriage.
Blocked or damaged tubes are common infertility that is usually treated with surgery.
Different surgeries are available depending on the area of the blockage or damage.
Tubal reanastomosis is mainly used to reverse tubal ligation or to repair damaged fallopian tubes caused by disease. If the end of the fallopian tube is blocked by a buildup of fluid then you will need a Salpingostomy. When the part of the tube closest to the ovary is partially blocked or has scar tissue, preventing normal egg pickup the doctors may recommend a Fimbrioplasty.
When the doctors just simply can’t find the reason why you can’t become pregnant, he may suggest a Clomiphene treatment, hormone injections, or insemination.
Intrauterine Insemination known as IUI or Artificial Insemination, AI, can be used with your partner’s sperm or from a sperm donor. When a woman is ovulating, sperm is placed in the uterus often combined with superovulation medicine to increase the number of available eggs.
If your partner has low fertility, it may be recommended to start medication, such as Clomiphene, to improve sperm count.
Finally, it may come to decide whether you want to try In vitro fertilization (IVF) which is the placement of fertilized eggs into a woman’s uterus. Or you can also try Intracytoplasmic sperm injection, which is when an egg is fertilized in a lab, if fertilization occurs, then the embryo is placed in the woman’s uterus.
