Infertility doesn’t automatically mean that your only option is In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). Several low-cost treatment options are available out there for you that are not as expensive and invasive as IVF. Many people accept the fact that IVF is the only way to have a baby, but that is not true.
What are the tests to undergo before considering treatment?
Before treatment, your doctor may advise you to undergo tests for hormonal balance, ovarian function, and general health. For women, early detection and intervention of increased prolactin levels and thyroid disease can bring back the reproductive system to normal.
Treating metabolic problems, such as insulin resistance, also will improve reproductive health. Moreover, men must undergo a semen analysis to address sperm production problems.
The beginning phase of a female’s fertility evaluation involves the fallopian tubes and the uterus. Uterine fibroids affect most women and therefore influence their ability to conceive.
Also, uterine polyps commonly affect women in search of fertility care. Whether it be polyps or fibroids, both block the uterus and interfere with implantation. Therefore, pulling them out will restore a woman’s fertility.
Bear in mind that your treatment will depend on the underlying condition that is causing infertility.
