Realizing your parenthood dreams.

Waiting for a bun in the oven can take an emotional toll after years of trying. But know that you are not alone, and this is certainly not an isolated case. This situation happens to every 1 of 7 couples, which is much more common than you think. And you don’t have to go through it alone. Fertility treatments can help you conceive and assist you throughout pregnancy so that you could have  a smooth sailing journey to deliver your bundle of joy you have always been waiting for.

If you’re struggling with infertility, there are fertility treatments that aim to either fix the cause of infertility or use technologies such as IVF or IUI to aid in conceiving.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
This is the most common kind of fertility treatment in which the sperm and eggs are joined in a small dish in the laboratory in order to allow fertilization to take place before being transferred into the uterus.

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
Using a very delicate microneedle, a single healthy sperm will be injected into the centre of the egg. This method is usually performed if the sperms have difficulty penetrating the egg or if the sperm count is rather low. The ability of the sperm to penetrate the egg is then no longer important as this has been assisted by the ICSI method.

Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET)
Similar to IVF, but the embryo is cryopreserved or frozen before being transferred to the uterus. The frozen embryo will be placed back in the uterus at the right time of the month.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
Using a small catheter to put washed sperm into uterus. This is always done after minimal stimulation of medications or injections.

Semen Analysis
A common test for males. It is used to evaluate the characteristics of the semen and determine the sperm’s number and quality.

Fertility Screening
A few tests will be made in order to determine the health of fertility. This can be done for couples, advanced age women and men.

Egg Freezing
Also known as oocyte preservation, egg freezing involves harvesting and then preserving your oocytes so that you can delay having children. Egg freezing is also suitable for those undergoing systemic chemotherapy or other therapies thought to be a threat to reproductive potential.

It’s important to undergo fertility screening and checkup. There are many factors that influence the success rate of fertility treatments. Repeated treatments may be necessary as there is no 100% guarantee that the treatment will result in conception. So it is best to consult with our affiliated specialist to evaluate your personal circumstances properly.

However, it goes without saying that taking care of yourself throughout the journey is the most important. Taking care of yourself is not selfish. Read up people’s experiences and talk to your loved ones who can understand what you are going through. Discuss your expectations with your doctor so that you’ll be adequately informed. And during this difficult time, it is not wrong to step away from negativity.
