What are the best infertility Treatments?

Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive, and it is a problem that most couples face. There may be different causes of infertility. While some are easily diagnosed, some are difficult to determine and need careful investigations. After analysing the reason, it is recommended to undergo specific treatment. Infertility is an emotional ride, a journey that could seem long and anxious. A wide range of treatment methods is available for both men and women, depending on the gravity of the situation. When one starts suspecting infertility, it is always advisable to seek immediate attention and care and choose the appropriate treatment suggested by the medical care provider.

Infertility treatment can be classified into three types:

• Medications to help the ovulation process.

• Assisted or artificial methods of conception.

• Surgeries to treat any abnormal conditions within the reproductive system of either the male or the female.

What are the best treatments for infertility?

Drugs for fertility: Ovulation is the leading factor responsible for reproduction, and if there is any abnormality, it becomes almost impossible for a woman to conceive. Certain drugs regulate the ovulation process, thereby increasing the chances of pregnancy. These drugs are mainly prescribed drugs. Browsing through the internet could give you a glimpse or overview of these drugs, but these are not available over-the-counter. Hence, one must not risk consuming such medications without a proper prescription by a medical practitioner.

Some of the conditions in women that require surgical intervention are:

• Blocked fallopian tubes – If the fallopian tubes are either blocked or scarred, it causes a hindrance in the passage of the egg. Therefore, surgery is mandated to remove the blockage and make it easier for the egg’s path.

• Tubal ligation reversal – Some women who intend to delay pregnancy would have had a tubal ligation, also known as female sterilization. Since this procedure prevents conception, surgery needs to reverse the process when planning to conceive.

• Surgery for conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids, and PCOS – A laparoscopic surgery is commonly recommended for women diagnosed with any of these conditions. Surgery helps remove endometrial cysts, unexplained growths, and fibroids. Surgery could also be suggested for women with pelvic adhesions as these adhesions prevent the free passage of eggs through the fallopian tubes.

In cases where the male could contribute to infertility, surgery might be recommended if the condition so demands.

A few common conditions that require surgery in men are:

Varicocelectomy: A condition with dilation of veins within the scrotum that may lead to problems with infertility resulting in low sperm production. Surgery such as varicocelectomy or varicocele embolization is therefore performed to remove the enlarged veins to restore proper blood supply to the reproductive system.

Reversal of vasectomy: Vasectomy is also known as male sterilization, a procedure that prevents the release of sperm. When one is desirous of parenthood, this procedure can be reversed to restore the freedom of sperm.

Surgery for ejaculatory ducts: Some men could have issues with closed ejaculatory vents. These ducts provide a channel to carry semen from testicles to the urethra. A closed duct can interfere with the ability to ejaculate. Hence, a surgery named “transurethral ejaculatory duct resection” may be recommended to correct such problems.

Sperm extraction: For some men who have a severe deficit in sperm production, this surgery might be the sole option to father a biological child. A procedure called “microsurgical testicular sperm extraction” is recommended in such cases.

Artificial or assisted conception:

There are several artificial and assisted methods of conception for women who cannot conceive the usual way because of issues with fertilization.

Some of these methods include:

• Ovulation induction

• Artificial insemination (AI) or intrauterine insemination (IUI)

• Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)

• Surrogacy

• In vitro fertilization (IVF)

• Intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection (IMSI)

Besides all these, the first step towards infertility treatment would be maintaining a healthy lifestyle and maintaining an ideal BMI (body mass index). All the above procedures need a definitive diagnosis of the underlying condition to determine and render the appropriate treatment. Don’t hold back the desire; experience the ultimate joy of being a parent. A highly skilled facility equipped with specialized caretakers is the best place one needs to look forward to for all the issues that could be stopping one from feeling the bliss of parenthood.
