I HAVE heard some couples seeking fertility treatment use the expression “hit-or-miss” when talking about assisted conception methods. No doubt one question agitating the minds of almost every couple seeking treatment for one problem of infertility or the other So today I’ll be talking about how couples can avoid hit-or-miss fertility treatment . Let me begin by pointing out that taking up fertility treatment should not be seen as a gamble even in the face of the realization that the infertility experience could be more of an emotional than physical challenge.
While it could be admissible that assisted reproductive assistance may not work for everybody all the time, the approach I would recommend any couple seeking a successful outcome to adopt is to have a positive approach. It does not hurt to expect that any fertility treatment option you choose would always work for you. But a successful outcome to a treatment plan does not just happen. It is a deliberate event that begins with a positive approach and the determination to succeed.We have long established that infertility affects the couple, not just the woman or the man as an individual, thus it is important that both parties (the man and woman) learn as much about fertility problems and treatment as they can. The idea is that this approach will put them in position to ask the right questions and spot potential trouble. With a reasonable understanding of the conditions necessary for conception, you will be able to help your physician provide the best opportunity to reach your fertility potential.
Being informed about different fertility subjects like endometriosis, artificial insemination, and in vitro fertilization goes a long way in making the people directly concerned to be responsible for their own fertility treatment. The point here is that fertility treatment is team work involving you, your husband or partner and your doctor. If you work as a team, you’ll be able to design a fertility treatment plan that will work for you as a couple.
