Choosing the right fertility treatment is not always easy. There are many different types of fertility treatments available which can make it difficult to decide what’s best for you. If you are currently trying to conceive, I’ve put together a list of some common types of fertility treatments that may help you along your journey!
Types of infertility treatment options: -Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) -In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) -Blastocyst Transfer -Embryo Freezing and Thawing -Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) -GIFT, ZIFT and TET -Intrauterine Tubal Insemination with Donor (IUTDI) / Artificial Donor Insemination (A.D.I.) -Donor Egg/ Embryo Freezing -Adoption
If you’re considering making an appointment with a fertility clinic , the first step is to speak with your family doctor or OBGYN. If you’ve already had tests done at your local hospital, they should be able to let you know if there are any underlying issues which may require further treatment. Once you’ve been diagnosed by them, they can refer you to a fertility clinic in order for you to be treated.
If you do not have a family doctor or OBGYN, it may be a good idea to find one before moving forward with fertility treatment options. They will ultimately become your main point of contact and should be able to guide you through the process from start to finish!
It can be beneficial for both you and your partner to attend counselling sessions with a therapist. Counselling is becoming increasingly popular among couples going through infertility as there are so many stressors involved which may contribute towards difficulties conceiving .
At times, this can even impact on a couple’s relationship which is why going for counselling together may greatly help to improve communication within the relationship and also reduce any unnecessary tension between partners or other family members during what can be a stressful time.
Fertility clinic services and treatments can be expensive. If you are looking for financial help there are many fertility clinics which offer financing options such as interest free loans, grants and even charity programs depending on your individual circumstances.
These will usually require having to meet certain criteria such as being a Canadian citizen, living in Ontario or Quebec or have lived in Canada for at least the past 12 months to qualify. I made a list of frequently asked questions about fertility treatment costs if you would like more information.
If you’re not currently looking to conceive and are undecided as to whether or not you will want children in the future, it may be a good idea to freeze your embryos .
It is becoming increasingly common for women who postpone having kids due to work or other reasons such as travelling, delaying motherhood until their late 30’s/early 40’s etc.
Fertility clinics usually store embryos free of charge until required which can save you both money and time.
The process of thawing and transferring an embryo only takes up 1-2 days and there is no need for hospitalization (unlike with eggs). If you end up deciding that you do not want children at all, then it simply becomes a one off cost option for storage rather than spending thousands of dollars on IVF and fertility drugs which you may never use.
If later on in life, however, you do end up wanting to become pregnant then all it takes is one cycle and your embryos (frozen at a very young age) will be ready to use when being transferred back into the uterus!
If you have been trying to conceive naturally for 1 year or more without success, IUI may be a suitable option for you. This type of treatment involves taking fertility drugs in order to stimulate the growth of eggs in the ovaries.
Once they are mature enough an IUI will take place where a special catheter is used to pass sperm through the cervix directly into the womb where it fertilise any eggs that have been produced.
This is a very quick and minimally invasive procedure taking only 15-30 minutes after which you can go home, rest and carry on with your normal daily activities the same as always!
If you have been trying to conceive without success after 1 year of using IUI’s or want to try and conceive through gender selection options such as PGD, PGS or Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis; you will now need to move onto IVF .
This involves monitoring and stimulating menstrual cycles in order to produce eggs which are then collected during an operation where they pass them into a lab. They are fertilized by sperm (that has also been mixed with your partner’s sperms) and once have developed; they are later transferred back into the uterus in the hope of implantation and a healthy pregnancy.
If you have had IUI’s but would now like to move onto IVF, your doctor may recommend a ‘wash out’ period of around 3-4 weeks where no fertility drugs are used so that there aren’t any lingering eggs which could potentially lead to multiple births.
This is also done to make sure that your ovaries are completely recovered from all previous rounds of stimulation before going ahead with the next step in treatment.
So there you have it! There are many options available when it comes to infertility treatment and hopefully this guide has helped you understand some of the more popular treatments that doctors can offer today.
Some people will be successful on their first try while others will have to go through a few rounds of IUI treatments before success. It really just depends on the person and their fertility issues so it is important not to give up hope even if you’ve been trying for a couple of years without any luck yet!
No matter how long it takes, there is always light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to IVF & other forms of infertility treatment with women successfully getting pregnant in their 40’s these days. Just keep your eye on that prize and one day you’ll be holding your very own baby.
When it comes to conception and starting a family, many people worry about their age as they do not want to miss out on the fun before it is too late. Although there are risks involved with older mothers such as Down Syndrome etc., fertility clinics can help you get pregnant either using IVF or IUI (artificial insemination) and even look after your embryos until you decide that you would like to use them!
The reasons behind having children later in life today is usually due to work/financial commitments, travelling and sometimes just putting off motherhood until they feel ready themselves.
Whatever your reason may be; most clinics will store your embryos free of charge for as long as required which means that you won’t have to fork out thousands of pounds every year!
If you are interested in storing your embryos please check with your clinic, but most will store them for free until the age of 30 before charging an annual fee which is usually around 10,000-30,000 per year.
You can also pay for insurance to cover up to 90,000 worth of storage fees if they aren’t covered by your clinic already.
Although it may seem like a lot at first; when you look at how much IVF treatment costs; they really are very small amounts that you will be paying out each year and can save you loads of money in the long run if you wish to use the same embryos again.
Many women end up having several rounds of IVF over time so it certainly pays to have your embryos stored even if you are not sure when you will use them.
After the age of 40, it is more difficult for women to conceive naturally due to poor egg quality but don’t worry; IVF can still help you get pregnant even at this late stage! Just bear in mind that the likelihood of multiples does increase with age so be prepared for that if you aren’t looking for any children apart from your first one.
Some clinics will tell patients over 35 that they should only have 1 embryo transferred during their first round of treatment which can take around 3 weeks to complete.
This is because there are risks involved with older women getting pregnant including Down Syndrome etc., so it is best practice by doctors to take certain precautions rather than chance having multiples.
Multiples are quite common these days, but the majority of clinics will not transfer more than 1 embryo at a time unless you have been through previous rounds of IVF and know that it is safe to do so with your case.
Even then, some still prefer to play it safe as there can be risks involved even if you have been trying unsuccessfully for over 10 years without any problems from previous rounds!
In order to get pregnant via IVF treatment with doctors in the India most patients will need around 2,00,000 to 3,00,000 per round which includes all their medications up until egg collection.
Usually they will recommend going ahead with 3 full cycles before looking into other infertility treatments such as IUI or donor sperm and egg treatment.
During IVF you will be under the care of an embryologist who will monitor your progress throughout and look after your embryos until you decide to use them! You can then have a vaginal delivery with a normal pregnancy if everything goes to plan or elect for a C-section depending on personal preference.
The procedure itself involves using medications to stimulate the ovaries into making multiple eggs which are then removed during transvaginal ultrasound scans or keyhole surgery prior to being placed in individual dishes ready for fertilisation, culturing and freezing.
There are different types of fertility treatments available here in the India depending on your situation so it is best to discuss your options with doctors either at one of our top clinics or private hospitals which specialise in fertility treatments.
You can also have a chat to other people who have been through IVF before if you would feel more comfortable doing so as they will be able to give you a personal insight into their own experiences and how it has helped them.
Embryo adoption is a popular choice for many patients as it helps them to conceive a child that they can bond with and share genetic information with.
Most people go through IVF using their own eggs and sperm, but embryo adoption uses embryos which have been left over from previous rounds of treatment or created at fertility clinics around the world.
The majority of embryos used in this way come from couples who have successfully completed IVF and now wish to give another couple the chance of conceiving a child before disposing of any remaining unused embryos which would normally be destroyed after 12 months due to strict hospital guidelines.
If you choose to use embryo donation, your clinic will ask you for certain criteria such as height hair colour etc., so they can match the embryo to your requests as closely as possible.
A lot of people find it a great way to have a child without going through the stress of IVF and all the hormones which can come with it so bear that in mind if you are worried about how you will cope physically and emotionally during treatment.
Most women do not require any fertility treatment in order to get pregnant these days and will conceive within 12 months without problems. If you are over 35 years of age however, your eggs will be much less fertile and more difficult to fertilise which is when IVF treatment can be a great alternative.
The best thing about fertility treatments here in the India is that they cost a lot less than if you were in the India for example and many people find it easier to adapt to their surroundings after flying back home again later on.
There are various reasons why people choose this method of conceiving such as previous failed attempts at getting pregnant naturally or through IUI (artificial insemination) which has also shown poor results.
Embryo donation is a fantastic alternative as it gives you the chance to have a child without going through IVF and all the pressure which comes with this. Most clinics will offer a service where they can provide you with information and assistance throughout the entire process, including finding donors if required.
This can be an emotional time but knowing that there is someone out there who wants to help you to become parents by donating their own genetic material can make such a difference to your life!
