Deciding to start a family is one of the biggest leaps in any marriage. That is why it brings a lot of distress and disappointment if couples are unable to conceive. Due to some problems, like inadequate semen production or defect in the ovaries, they cannot form a fertilised egg like normal people.
For some couples, adoption is the next best thing. For others, artificial insemination is a workable alternative. But for other aspiring parents, neither is an option.
Good news is that for some cases, conceiving is possible through a list of fertility treatment options. They make way for a natural conception with drugs that induce fertility.If successful, fertility treatments can help achieve the following:
In many cases, women cannot conceive because they have irregular ovulation cycles and release premature eggs. The fertility treatment not only regulates the cycle, but also stimulates the release of healthy and mature eggs.
Promote hormone production
The drugs in fertility treatments contain synthetic hormones that help restore the balance between the hormones involved in reproduction. For men, the treatment can promote production of testosterone. For women, the treatment intends to stimulate production of oestrogen and progesterone.
Promote healthy sperms
The most common problem in men who can’t conceive is the inability to produce healthy sperms and adequate seminal fluid. The treatment stimulates the release of quality and active spermatozoa as it also increases the volume of seminal liquid.
Regulate blood sugar
Abnormal blood sugar can also cause infertility in both men and women. The fertility drugs aim to regulate the level of blood sugar and keep the body healthy and responsive to reproduction.
Even after conception, the treatment will continue. Over the course of the pregnancy, the medicines, which contain vitamins and minerals that are essential in the foetus’ development, reduce the risk of miscarriage.
Regulate blood flow
Poor blood flow can also affect a person’s capacity to reproduce. The treatment will normalise the blood flow, especially in the genital area.
Serve as aphrodisiac
The drugs also contain substances that increase men’s sexual urge and help promote a healthier sex life.
Different infertility cases may require different medications. Before taking anything, consult your doctor to know which treatment option is safest for you.
