Benefits of Infertility Treatments

Posted on May 22nd, 2017 in Fertility, Treatments, Infertility

Many couples tend to rely on in vitro fertilization (IVF) as a last-ditch effort to get pregnant. What many don’t realize is that infertility treatments are often the first course of action for future parents. Get to know why infertility treatments are becoming more and more common amongst couples choosing to start a family.

Treatments Are Improving

One of the biggest benefits is that treatments continue to improve. Women can take advantage of the latest medical breakthroughs in treatment methods to enhance their likelihood at a healthy and happy pregnancy.

Control of Timing

Couples who want to control the timing of their pregnancy for various reasons tend to use infertility treatments like IVF. Because the woman’s eggs can be cryopreserved for the future, these treatments allow couples to plan for the future. Whether it’s currently time for the woman to focus on her career or heal from an injury or illness, pregnancy can be scheduled for the proper timing in a person’s life.

Decrease Family Risks

Many couples will turn to IVF treatments because they have a history of genetic diseases in their family. Genetic testing during infertility treatments allows for more clarity regarding genetic abnormalities in the embryos. Embryos are monitored throughout their growth and eventually a cell is removed for genetic testing. This test can provide prospective parents with further clarity on the health and genetic makeup of the embryo.

Use Donated Sperm and/or Eggs

Infertility treatments can be used with donated sperm and/or eggs. This option helps to increase the chances of conception in the first and second treatments.Once the egg is manually fertilized, it becomes an embryo.

Whether you have experienced trouble getting pregnant or are ready to plan out the best time to start a family, consider the many benefits of infertility treatments.
