Which Fertility Treatment to choose

Realizing that another month has passed and you are still not pregnant is a confusing time. You think you should see a doctor, and your mind instantly fills with images of being poked prodded, and injected. What do all those abbreviations mean anyway? How will you know which treatments will be right for you?

While a good fertility specialist will be able to answer many questions for you, there are some things that only you and your partner can decide so it’s a good idea to get a head start on those conversations. Are you both willing to undergo tests? Are there some tests you are not willing to have? What about treatments? Are fertility drugs your limit? Or are you willing to do whatever it takes to have a baby?

Things to consider when deciding on treatments:

  • Cause of infertility – It may be obvious but your choices will be limited by what is preventing conception in the first place.
  • Possible side-effects - How will you cope with the drug-induced mood swings or soreness?
  • Genetics - Is it imperative that you have a baby genetically related to both of you?
  • Doctor’s advice - Don’t discount what your doctor has to say. Remember – they’ve guided many other couples through the same decisions.
  • Cost - This could be a very expensive journey. Be sure to consider your insurance coverage, what you can afford, and how far into debt you are willing to go.
  • Emotions – Infertility is a stressful journey. Can you support each other and cope with the ups and downs?

This is the time for you to both be honest. Better to find out each other’s limits now rather than the day you are scheduled to be at the IVF clinic.
