Fertility Treatment

What is Fertility Treatment?


Many women need special medical treatment to help them get pregnant. This kind of treatment is called fertility treatment – you can get more information by clicking this link http://www.feldbergclinic.co.il/


If you’ve been trying to get pregnant for 3 or 4 months, keep trying. It may just take more time, even longer than you think it should. You may want to think about fertility treatment if:

You’re younger than 35 and have been trying to get pregnant for at least a year.
You’re 35 or older and have been trying to get pregnant for at least 6 months.

  • There are many kinds of fertility treatment that can help women get pregnant. Talk to your provider to find out if one is right for you.
  • Fertility treatment can cause complications, like getting pregnant with twins or more, having premature birth and having a baby with birth defects.
  • If you need fertility treatment, there are ways to help you get pregnant with just one baby. This can help reduce the risk of pregnancy complications.
  • Things like smoking and weight can affect your fertility. Making certain changes in your life may help you get pregnant without fertility treatment.

Assisted reproductive technology (ART) is the technology used to achieve pregnancy in procedures such as fertility medication, artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization and surrogacy. It is reproductive technology used primarily for infertility treatments, and is also known as fertility treatment.

IVF – the risks

Your clinic will discuss the risks of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) with you before you begin treatment. It is very important that you are fully aware of all the potential problems involved.

Drug Reaction

A mild reaction to fertility drugs may involve hot flushes, feeling down or irritable, headaches and restlessness. Symptoms usually disappear after a short time but if they do not, you should see a doctor as soon as possible.

Ovarian hyper-stimulation syndrome (OHSS)

OHSS can be a dangerous over-reaction to fertility drugs used to stimulate egg production. It can cause symptoms such as a swollen stomach, stomach pains, nausea and vomiting.

If you start to experience any of these symptoms you must contact your doctor immediately.

Miscarriage

Although the risk of a miscarriage after IVF is no higher than after a natural conception, nor is the risk lower.

Your clinic will arrange an early pregnancy ultrasound scan if you conceive after IVF. This is to check that the pregnancy is not likely to miscarry. The scan is usually done about two weeks after the positive pregnancy test.

Ectopic pregnancy

When an embryo develops in your fallopian tube rather than your womb, the pregnancy is said to be ectopic.

An ectopic pregnancy can still occur after IVF. Ectopic pregnancy can cause vaginal bleeding, low pregnancy hormone levels and miscarriage.

Hormone tests and scans are used to detect ectopic pregnancies and you should tell your doctor about any vaginal bleeding or stomach pain.

Multiple births

Having a multiple birth (twins, triplets or more) is the single greatest health risk associated with fertility treatment.


Your clinic should discuss this risk with you when you visit – http://www.feldbergclinic.co.il/
