Some Approaches to Infertility in Orlando

without comments

Infertility is not a rare problem and it can be a social stigma especially for females in certain cultures.  This condition strikes thousands of couples each year and it is up to the couple to find ways to address this problem if they desire to have children coming from their own flesh and blood.

Both female and male can have fertility problems.  Women can be infertile for various reasons some of which can be ovulation problems, few progesterone layers, low ovarian stockpile, ovulation dysfunctions and specific infections.  For men infertility may be due to old age, chronic infections, sperm blockage or low sperm count.  A doctor can diagnose infertility for both sexes.

When the problem is identified, the right solution should be sought.  There are several kinds of medical and alternative (natural) therapies available for infertility.  Knowing what’s right for you is your job to find out.

Listed below are some of the common procedures in the treatment of infertility:

  1. Drugs – For physicians, the first usual recommendations for treating both male and female infertility is prescription medication.   Except for chronic infections and old age, some drugs can be effective with several types of infertility.  The negative side to all this is that these drugs are considerably expensive and are not covered by insurance.  Another problem is that all these prescription medications contain harmful chemicals that result in oftentimes serious side effects to the body which may need more medication to treat.
  2. In vitro fertilization (IVF) – This is a procedure where the egg is fertilized outside the female’s body. After egg fertilization, the egg is transferred back to the woman’s uterus.  This therapy has been introduced in 1981 and has a fair rate of success in terms of successful pregnancies.
  3. Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ISCI) – In a controlled environment the sperm is injected directly into the female ova resulting in egg fertilization.
  4. Herbal treatments – There are many kinds of herbal formulas that herbalists offer to combat female and male infertility.  However, like prescription meds, some of these formulas have negative side effects.  All in all, however, herbal formulas are much safer to use than prescription medications.
  5. Acupuncture Orlando– A unique Chinese method of addressing infertility is acupuncture. Acupuncture has steadily been increasing in popularity in the US as a treatment for infertility.  It is a procedure where ultra thin non-hollow needles are inserted at vital points in the body.  This procedure is believed to balance energy (chi, yin, yang) which restores good health to the body and regulates body functions including the hormones which is helpful in addressing infertility since some types of infertility are caused by hormonal imbalance.  Furthermore acupuncture improves blood flow to the uterus producing healthy eggs and strengthening the uterine layer providing a good environment for the fetus to develop and grow.
