Other Infertility treatment options

Table of Contents

There are several other treatment options available for both men and women. Some are listed below:

1. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI): A single healthy sperm is injected directly into a mature egg. ICSI is often used when there is poor semen quality or quantity, or if fertilization attempts during prior IVF cycles failed.

2. Medications: More often than not, ovulation problems can be solved with the use of fertility medications. Talk to your doctor to determine the best course of action for you.

3. Fertility Preservation: Whether you’re recovering from an illness, or just aren’t ready to have children, freezing your eggs is a great alternative for those who are waiting to build their family.

4. Egg Donation: With the help of IVF, a donor’s eggs are fertilized with your partner’s sperm (or donor sperm) and the embryos are transferred to your uterus for implantation and pregnancy.

5. Donor Sperm: Having a baby with the help of a sperm donor is a great alternative for single moms, lesbian couples or anyone struggling with infertility.

6. Surrogacy: A surrogate, or gestational carrier, is a great alternative for a gay male partnership or a woman who is unable to carry a baby on her own.

7. Surgery: Infertility surgical procedures can help to correct many fertility problems and anatomical abnormalities that may lead to infertility or pregnancy losses.
