If you are having trouble conceiving, you are not alone. Becoming pregnant is a complex task, and it requires highly specific conditions in the bodies of both the male and female partners. Many couples face this issue, and it is not uncommon to have questions about the issue.
Below are some answers to frequently asked questions about infertility so you can talk more openly with your doctor about the issue.
Is it my fault that I cannot conceive? You should not blame yourself for infertility, as it is usually caused by factors outside an individual’s control. Males and females have an equal chance of having complications that lead to infertility, and about one-third of couples have complications with both partners.
How can I increase my chances of fertility? In many cases, lifestyle changes do help improve fertility, especially in females. Changes to your diet, exercise, hormone therapy, and acupuncture treatments can all improve your fertility, so you should discuss these options with your doctor.
How is infertility diagnosed? There are several steps to a diagnosis for infertility, as both the male and female will need to undergo testing. Both partners should talk to the doctor about their health history; it’s important to be honest in responses to the doctor’s questions. Knowing certain details about your health is essential for an accurate diagnosis.
What are the payment options for infertility treatment? Some insurance plans cover all or part of infertility diagnosis and treatment, so you should contact your health insurance provider for details. In cases where insurance does not provide complete coverage, payment plans and medical loans can assist you in financing the treatment.
