Treatment Options

Everyone’s journey to becoming a parent is different, but we all are reaching for the same goal: to have a baby! Your fertility specialist will work with you to help overcome your infertility diagnosis and select a treatment option that best fits the individual needs of your growing family.

Medical Fertility Treatments

Thanks to modern medical science a number of infertility treatments are currently available to help you conceive, including the following:

  • Fertility drugs
  • High-tech assisted reproductive technology (ART)
  • In vitro fertilization (IVF)
  • Intrauterine insemination (IUI)
  • Surgery

Other options for those with fertility problems include the following:

  • Egg donation: for women who are unable to get pregnant with their own eggs but would like to become pregnant and give birth to a child
  • Gestational carrier arrangements: for individuals and couples who are unable to, or choose not to, conceive on their own
  • Adoption: an option for those who are unable to, or choose not to, have a biologically related child

Alternative Fertility Treatments

Along with these medical infertility treatments, a number of alternative and complementary fertility treatment options also exist. These alternative fertility treatments can be used alone or combined with conventional medical fertility treatment. For instance, alternative fertility treatments like weight loss plans help many women get pregnant. Those dealing with the intense emotional stress of infertility also praise alternative fertility treatments like massage, acupuncture, yoga and counseling. These additions to your medical infertility treatment can help you relax and feel better on your family building journey.

With so many treatment options to choose from, many individuals and couples are able to find a way to overcome their infertility diagnoses, achieving the goal of one day having a family of their own.
