Treatment options

Since your fertility specialist does not have a definitive reason for your infertility, they will recommend treatment options that can help you conceive. The treatment methods may lean on improving your egg quality or quantity through lifestyle adjustments and medications.


In vitro fertilization (IVF) is one of the most effective infertility treatments. The procedure involves ovarian stimulation, egg retrieval, fertilization, and embryo transfer. Your specialist will fertilize your egg using sperm in a laboratory. Then, your specialist will implant the egg in your uterus, or they can store it for a future IVF procedure.

Intrauterine insemination

The intrauterine insemination treatment involves the injection of concentrated sperm into your uterus during ovulation. Your specialists will wash the sperm to ensure it is concentrated before placing it in your uterus. The procedure is very specific because specialists can conduct it only when you are ovulating.

Fertility medication

You can use fertility medication independently or combine it with other treatments like IVF. The medications promote egg production and ovulation. Fertility medications contain hormones that can treat low sperm count and egg count. The most common medications include gonadotrophins and clomiphene. Understanding that you can have more than one baby with this method is crucial.

Lifestyle changes

For your body to carry a pregnancy, it needs to be healthy. Your weight and activity levels influence your level of fertility. If you carry extra weight, getting pregnant can be challenging even if you don’t have other fertility issues.

Exercising regularly to increase blood circulation and keep your body flexible and active provides a good growing environment for the baby. Your baby will need an adequate supply of nutrients to enable growth. Exercise will also increase and maintain your ovulation rate.

If you smoke, you might be affecting your cervix and the quality of your eggs. If your cervix is not in optimal health, you increase the chances of having a miscarriage.

Diet choices

The foods and drinks you consume will affect your fertility. Foods full of sugar and saturated fats will decrease your egg quality, decreasing your chances of getting pregnant. Opt for whole foods full of nutrients. You can include foods such as whole grains, lean meat, lots of fruits, and vegetables.
