Fertility options are plentiful, if you know where to look. If you've been trying to get pregnant and haven't been successful, don't give up. Find a clinic to help you sort through all the fertility options available to you. You may be surprised by just how many different treatments and procedures are out there.

Exploring Fertility Options

When you're having difficulty getting pregnant, it seems like the whole world is against you. Any trip out of the house brings you face-to-face with countless mothers and fathers, happily and unhappily fussing over infants, toddlers, and kids. Why do they get to have kids and you don't? What's so great about them?

The answer: not a thing. More of them than you know may have gone through what you're going through right now. They explored fertility options and found something that worked for them. You've probably tried the quick fixes. You've quit smoking. If you're a skinny woman, you've tried to put on some weight. If you're obese, you've tried to take some off. Now you're ready for a professional push. Once you've tried fertility drugs, the next step is in vitro fertilization (IVF).

IVF can help overcome difficulties caused by anything from low sperm count to blocked fallopian tubes. In IVF, eggs are extracted from the woman and fertilized in the lab. Once the fertilized egg is growing successfully, it's returned to the mother--to her uterus. IVF, since its first use in 1978, has seen astounding success rates. The Internet is a great place to find a clinic to advise you about IVF and all the other fertility options.
