Infertility problems can frustrate couples and rip at a marriage. Part of the plan when taking vows was to "be fruitful and multiply." Now, some unforeseen obstacle has gotten in the way of those dreams. Well, don't call the marriage off just yet. There are many solutions to infertility problems to be explored. You may be pregnant before you know it.

Solving Infertility Problems

Clinics everywhere are concerned with only one thing--helping infertile couples get pregnant. The first step is identifying exactly where the problem is. Is it the man or the woman who is infertile, or both? Different treatments are designed for different situations. In 60 percent of cases, it is the women having the trouble. Blocked fallopian tubes are among the most common female infertility problems. When it is the man who is experiencing the difficulty, low sperm count or low sperm mobility are usually the culprits.

To deal with low sperm count, there are simple steps to take that require minimal cost. First of all, if the man is a smoker, he's got to quit. Researchers have found that environmental pollutants, especially cigarette smoke, are responsible in part for low sperm production. Infertility drugs are the second step to take. Next is in vitro fertilization (IVF).

You may never have thought you would parent a "test tube baby." Since IVF was first successful in 1978, thousands upon thousands of IVF babies have been born. There's no reason to be shy about it. A procedure such as IVF may be the ticket to get you the baby you have long been trying for.
