Useful Tips for Seeking Infertility Treatment
Choosing the best fertility doctor for you can be a complicated endeavor, made even more complicated by the fact that there are a great many potential causes of infertility, and the best treatment approach may be unique to each person. Below, the Center for Human Reproduction offers a few tips on what to consider when choosing the fertility doctor that best suits your needs.
The best fertility center for you is the one whose specialization, experience, and treatment offerings are most likely to result in a successful, healthy pregnancy for you. Being clear on what you need clinically, logistically and emotionally will help you make a balanced decision. Also make sure to factor in things like cost, travel time, your comfort level with your fertility doctor.
Choosing the best fertility treatment for you is a collaborative effort between you and your physician. Your fertility expert can advise you on pros and cons of the fertility treatment options for your condition, as well as your chances of pregnancy with each approach. But ultimately, you will play the key role in this decision by providing your own perspective and priorities.
We won’t mince words: the IVF process can be a grueling, difficult experience. But if having a baby is your greatest desire, the physical and emotional stress will be well worth the outcome. We often see patients putting on their best face while going through the IVF process, but any difficulties you run into, or discomfort felt, are understandable and completely valid.
Patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) often wonder, “Will I be able to get pregnant?” Polycystic ovary syndrome, which affects about 6-12% of women in reproductive age, occurs when a woman’s ovaries contain multiple small cysts. Women with PCOS often experience difficulty conceiving because of lack of ovulation and menstruation. PCOS may also affect their hormone levels.
