The fertility treatment depends on:

  • The cause of the infertility
  • The number of years you have been infertile
  • Your and your partner’s age
  • Personal choice

In case the initial treatments fail, then the couple will have to decide whether to try assisted reproductive technology or ART. Two widely used ART are;

  • In Vitro Fertilization or IVF- In this treatment, a fertilized egg or eggs are inserted through the woman’s cervix and into the uterus.
  • Intracytoplasmic sperm injection or ICSI- In this treatment, the surgeon will inject a sperm into an egg and let it fertilize in the lab. In Case fertilization occurs the doctor will place the embryo into the woman’s uterus.

It is important to note that not all places will have well equipped fertility clinics especially the rural areas. You may have to travel to another city to get the treatment done. It is therefore important to choose a clinic after reviewing its success rate. The success rate of the clinic depends on the following factors:

  • The surgeon’s experience and skills
  • The cause of your infertility
  • Live birth rates

Although the treatments do not guarantee a healthy baby, scientists have made several advances in this field that has  helped several childless couples have a baby.
