Various diseases and medical conditions can cause female infertility. Polycystic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis and fibroids are just some of the ailments that can make it hard for a woman to conceive. Age, lifestyle, weight and overall health are also factors that can have an impact on a woman's likelihood of becoming pregnant.
Various amazing female infertility treatments are available for those women who can afford them, though sometimes the solution is both simple and inexpensive. If a period of one year has elapsed and a woman finds herself unable to conceive, the first thing she should do is ask her doctor for a fertility evaluation.
Some female infertility treatments are surprisingly easy and straightforward. Sometimes all a woman needs to do is change certain aspects of her lifestyle. Things like having a healthy weight, eating the right foods, avoiding toxins like nicotine and alcohol and getting sufficient exercise can do a lot to increase a woman's chances of conceiving. Making sure that sexual intercourse occurs during ovulation is obviously imperative too.
Vitamins, minerals and herbal infertility treatments can also boost a woman's fertility. For instance iron, vitamin C and folic acid can help a woman to become pregnant. Herbs like evening oil of primrose, raspberry leaf, red clover and wild yam can encourage ovulation, regulate the menstrual cycle and correct hormonal imbalances.
Once a woman has been evaluated to ascertain the cause of her problem the doctor may decide that the best female infertility treatment is a certain medication. Various medicines are available to tackle different causes of female infertility. The most common medications which are used to treat the problem are fertility drugs and hormones. One of the most prevalent female fertility drugs is Clomiphene, which is sold with the brand names Serophene and Clomid. Clomiphene stimulates hormone production to increase the probability of conception.
One of the more expensive female infertility treatments is intrauterine insemination. This is a process wherebe washed sperm from the male partner, which is pure and highly concentrated, is inserted into the uterus of the female with a catheter during ovulation. This process is both quick and painless and is usually used in conjunction with a fertility drug.
In Vitro Fertilization
This type of female infertility treatment actually takes place in a laboratory. In vitro fertilization involves the removal of healthy eggs from the female and sperm cells from the male. The eggs and sperm cells are then mixed together in a glass laboratory dish. Once the eggs have been fertilized by the sperm cells, the embryos are placed in the woman's uterus. Hopefully at least one of these embryos will implant itself in the lining of the woman's uterus and normal gestation will follow.
