As women continue to age, the risk of miscarriage goes up, and the possibility of bearing a child lowers. These infertility problems are caused by several factors: heredity, medical history, physical condition, and age. The good news is that some of these health ailments can easily be remedied depending on the elements that are causing the medical issue.
It is no surprise that some couples are hesitant to choose a fertility treatment. Apart from the fact that these methods can be costly, couples also have to invest in a significant amount of time to conceive a child.
Thanks to medical advancements, there are several efficient and cost-effective treatments for fertility problems these days. Here are some examples:
Male infertility can stem from a deficient reproductive system. Examples of these infertility problems involve premature ejaculation and impotence. This medical condition can also occur when the male is unable to generate or release enough sperm in the female fallopian tube to create a fertilized egg.
Treatment for this problem depends on the cause of the condition. The physician may suggest a hormone therapy or surgery to correct inadequate amounts of sperm. Other methods may involve sperm cryopreservation, microsurgical varicocele ligation, sperm procurement practices, or microsurgical vasectomy reversal among others.
This may occur as a side effect of a recent surgical repair. Examples of these infertility problems include tuboplasticles (the process of correcting deformed fallopian tubes), cystectomies (resecting ovarian cysts via surgery), and myomectomies (the removal of a tumor in the uterus) among others.
Treating this type of infertility problem will depend on the medical history of the patient. These methods usually apply assisted hatching, and Assisted reproductive technology (ART) like Intracycloplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF).
These infertility problems keep the fertilized egg from reaching the uterus due to a blocked or broken fallopian tube. It may also occur at any time due to endometriosis, which occurs when there is an unusual buildup of tissue outside the abdominal organs, fallopian tubes, or the uterus cavity lining.
The physician will examine any possible risks before advising the patient to go through tubal surgery if she has endometriosis. Examples of tubal surgery involve laparoscopic surgery and sterilization reversal. If the fallopian tubes have been completely blocked by infertility problems, the physician may recommend IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization) instead of putting the patient at risk with major surgery.
