Here is a general overview of how Infertility treatment may work:

  • Diagnosis: you will undergo various tests and evaluations to identify the cause of infertility, including hormonal assessments, semen analysis, imaging tests, and possibly genetic testing.
  • Treatment plan: based on the diagnosis, your fertility specialist will develop a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This plan may involve one or a combination of treatments.
  • Medications: fertility medications may be prescribed to regulate hormonal imbalances, stimulate ovulation, or improve sperm production. These medications can be taken orally, injected, or administered vaginally.
  • Assisted reproductive technology (ART): ART procedures, such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF) or intrauterine insemination (IUI), may be recommended. These techniques involve combining eggs and sperm in the laboratory or directly placing sperm into the uterus to increase the chances of fertilisation.
  • Surgical intervention: if there are structural issues hindering fertility, surgical procedures may be performed. These surgeries aim to correct abnormalities, remove blockages, or repair damaged reproductive organs.
  • Genetic testing: preimplantation genetic testing may be conducted on embryos during IVF to screen for specific genetic disorders or chromosomal abnormalities.

How many treatment sessions are needed?

The number of sessions required for infertility treatment varies greatly depending on several factors, including the underlying cause of infertility, the type of treatment chosen, and individual circumstances. In some cases, a single treatment cycle may be sufficient to achieve pregnancy, while others may require multiple sessions or attempts.
Your fertility specialist will assess your specific situation and recommend a treatment plan tailored to your needs. This plan may involve multiple sessions, such as ovulation induction cycles, intrauterine insemination (IUI), or in vitro fertilisation (IVF) cycles. The number of sessions needed will be determined based on your response to treatment, the success of previous sessions, and other relevant factors.
