Treatment Of Infertility
The length of infertility, the age and general health of the couple and the type of medical problem all influence the decisions about the treatment of infertility. Another factor is how much intervention the couple will allow in trying to conceive. After testing each person, infertility treatments may be directed toward only one of the partners or a couple’s treatment may be recommended.
One basic step for couples is to simply have sex more often. Since sperm can survive inside the female for up to three days and having sex too often might decrease the sperm count. So having sex two to three times per week is optimal.
Common infertility issues for men include impotence, premature ejaculation or lack of viable sperm. The treatments for these conditions can include medication, behavioral changes, or surgery to remove blockages.
For women the most common infertility treatment is the use of fertility drugs. These drugs are used to stimulate ovulation or alter hormonal balances. Using injectable fertility drugs can increase the instances of multiple births. An oral drug is less likely to result in multiple births. Surgery is also used to remove blockages in the fallopian tubes.
Since not all infertility problems can be remedied, there are number of assisted reproductive technologies used to enable a couple to have a baby. The best know in in-vitro fertilization. The egg is fertilized with the sperm in a laboratory then it is implanted into the female’s uterus.
Natural treatments such as diet, exercise, nutritional supplements and herbal remedies are often used to be sure both partners are in optimal health. These natural remedies are often used along with medical treatments.
