Thanks to these researches, we have so much knowledge about natural ways to solve infertility. In the same vein, medical sciences have quite a load of solutions to infertility problems.
Yet, having need for an infertility treatment can be daunting. It is distracting, sometimes financially burdensome and stressful. For instance, I once interacted with a woman who after years of seeking a partner found one. Apparently, her excitement became short lived due to infertility problems.
She had almost given up on having a biological child until I challenged her to take advantage of infertility treatment breakthroughs. Amazingly, within a year or so after our discussion, she had a successful fertility treatment. Today she has her biological child and he’s quite healthy.
If you have a similar experience to the lady I just talked about, the question in your mind right now is: How can I solve my infertility problem? I am going to share some very effective and available options for kicking out infertility once and for all.
Let’s statistically look at the most common underlying causes of infertility. Of 100 couples unsuccessfully trying to get pregnant, 80 either have problems with ovulation, blockage of the fallopian tube or a sperm problem. Yet, for 15 of them, the cause of delay in having a baby is unknown.
Having known the most common causes of infertility let’s take a dip at solutions applicable to both sexes.

Changes in the virility of a man is often governed by hormones, and could indicate issues with fertility.

Different conditions that lead to pain or swelling in the testicles could contribute to infertility.

Female infertility treatment
If you seek a female infertility treatment, you may be required to do a physical exam. One of the things to expect when being tested is a pelvic exam. By the time your results are ready, the fertility treatment you require becomes clearer. However, some of the most effective female infertility treatment options include:
- Stimulation of ovulation using fertility drugs or herbs.
Fertility drugs like Clomid are commonly used to treat infertility in women. Like I mentioned earlier, most female infertility treatments deal with ovulation disorders. Medications or herbs are commonly used to regulate or induce ovulation.
- Surgery to open up blocked fallopian tubes and tissues hindering your fertility.
- Assisted reproductive technologies (ART) like the In vitro fertilization (IVF), intrauterine insemination (IUI)
In Vitro Fertilization is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) popularly known as IVF. It is the process of extracting eggs, retrieving a sperm sample, and then manually combining an egg and sperm in a laboratory dish. The fertilized egg (embryo) is then deposited to the womb.
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is a fertility treatment that involves depositing sperm inside a woman’s womb to effect fertilization of her eggs. The goal of IUI is to increase the amount of sperms that reach the fallopian tubes and increase the chance of fertilization.
