How should I select
the infertility clinic
It is important that you select a
reputed infertility clinic. Your family doctor would probably be a good
person to turn to for advice on the subject. Treating infertility can be
a long and frustrating process in some cases. It is important that you
share a rapport with your infertility specialist. There is no harm if you
make appointments with two or three specialists till you find one that
your comfortable with and in whose abilities you feel confident.
How soon can I find
out if I am infertile
Infertility assessment and management
takes time, whether in the surgery, gynaecological out patient clinic or
specialist infertility clinic. You should be prepared to undergo a whole
battery of tests and procedures and long hours of waiting in the doctor's
clinic before the verdict about your fertility comes in.
Should my husband also
accompany me to the specialist
A lot of men are reluctant to be
seen at a fertility specialist's clinic because they feel that in some
way it is a slur on their manhood. Men tend to confuse virility with
sterility and live in horror that the blame for the couple's inability
to conceive will be laid at their doorstep. If your husband has a low sperm
count, it does not make him less of a man in any way.
Remember that it takes two people
to make a baby. Since both you and your husband are involved in the process
of making a baby, it is only fair that he be part of the solution if there
is a problem. The infertility specialist will be in a position to be able
to discuss with both of you the different options that you have and to
also debate the chances of success and the possibility of failure.
When should one start
Treatment in its truest sense commences
as soon as you seek professional help. Many infertile couples have to go
through a long and arduous process to conceive with no guarantees of success.
On the other hand, there are women who become pregnant just after their
first appointment with the fertility specialist, without any treatment
at all. Tension can be a big obstacle in the path of conception. For some
women just meeting with an infertility specialist releases tension. They
feel that they are in the hands of a professional who will just fix the
problem if there is one.
What is the success
rate of infertile women getting pregnant with treatment
Over half of the couples with more
than two years of infertility eventually become successful in achieving
a pregnancy. With advances in infertility research and wider availability
of newer techniques, it is to be hoped that the success rate of infertility treatment would be much higher.
