COPE. Millions of individuals each year seek medical advice for the treatment for infertility. Coping with infertility can be overwhelming and at times — traumatic.
Some women have a difficult time getting pregnant or staying pregnant. It is a perplexing disease that affects approximately 10 percent of the population — striking diverse groups of women and men.
What is infertility?
Infertility is a disease or condition of the reproductive system often diagnosed after a couple has had one year of unprotected, well-timed intercourse, or if the woman has suffered from multiple miscarriages and the woman is under 35 years of age. If the woman is over 35 years old, it is diagnosed after 6 months of unprotected, well-timed intercourse.

These medications help regulate the timing of ovulation and stimulate the development and release of mature eggs. They can also help correct hormonal problems that can affect the lining of the uterus as it prepares to receive a fertilized egg. Ovulation medications can stimulate more than one egg to be released which increases the possibility of having twins and other multiples. Some of the common ovulation medications include the following.
Reproductive Surgery may be used to treat or repair a condition that is causing infertility such as fallopian tube blockage, or endometriosis. A common surgical procedure often used as part of the diagnostic workup of infertility is the laparoscopy. In a laparoscopy, a small telescope inserted into the abdominal or pelvic cavity allows internal organs to be visualized. Some procedures to treat infertility can be performed using instruments inserted through the laparoscope.
Assisted reproductive technology (ART)
For some couples, more extensive treatment is needed. With most forms of ART, the sperm and egg are united in the laboratory and the fertilized egg is returned to the woman’s uterus where it can implant and develop. Although ART procedures are often costly, many are being used with success. These include intrauterine insemination (IUI), In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Egg Donation, Sperm Donation, and Genetic Testing.
