5 Fertility treatments to help you get pregnant

Infertility occurs in about 11 percent of all reproductive-age couples. Thankfully, the fertility treatments and advanced reproductive technologies available today can help improve your chances of conceiving. It is estimated that more than 80 percent of couples with infertility problems will get pregnant.

Here are some fertility treatments that can make it possible for you to have a baby:

Use of pills and injections suggested by the doctor can help a woman produce more eggs each month and increase her chances of getting pregnant. On an average, 10 percent of women find success per cycle.

Intrauterine inseminations (IUI) is suggested to a couple who are not able to conceive due to issues with the male. With IUI, doctors use a thin tube that introduces sperm into the woman’s reproductive tract. Using either the partner’s or a donor’s sperm, inseminations increase the number of sperm reaching the fallopian tubes, thus increasing chances of pregnancy.

  1. In-Vitro Fertilization

In-vitro fertilization, or IVF, is one of the most popular fertility treatments. It is also very expensive and most preferred one due to its high success rate per cycle. It is most sought after by women who have fertility struggle and found no success with other treatments.

  1. Donor Egg IVF

This IVF procedure is for women who can’t conceive naturally. This procedure uses a donor egg and is similar to the regular IVF treatment, with the egg being fertilized and implanted into the woman’s uterus. This treatment has a success rate of 80 percent per cycle.
