Basic fertility treatments for men and women
When people are struggling to conceive, they often assume that getting help from a fertility specialist will lead to fertility treatment that is complex and expensive. The good news is that in many cases, affordable basic fertility treatments are all that is needed to help individuals and couples overcome common obstacles to achieve a successful pregnancy. Our fertility center in San Antonio offers a range of options for both men and women, tailored to your specific needs and goals.
Who can use basic fertility treatments?
Basic fertility treatments are often a good solution for individuals and couples experiencing difficulties conceiving or maintaining a pregnancy. Depending on the results of fertility tests, we may recommend these front-line treatments for certain causes of infertility, such as ovulation disorders, hormonal imbalances, sperm abnormalities or unexplained infertility. These treatments are also commonly used for same-sex couples hoping to build their families.
If you have been trying to conceive without success, or know you will need some assistance to get pregnant, basic fertility treatments could be an effective solution for you.
Basic fertility treatments for women and couples
In women, basic fertility treatments typically involve hormonal interventions to regulate ovulation and improve the chances of successful conception. If male factor infertility plays a role, treatment focuses on addressing sperm-related issues that may affect fertility.
- Ovulation induction. This treatment involves the use of medication to stimulate the development and release of eggs from the ovaries. To reduce the risk of twins or multiple births, we carefully monitor egg development in our office.
- Sperm analysis and enhancement. For men and couples, a complete fertility testing workup at our fertility center in San Antonio includes a comprehensive evaluation of the quality and quantity of sperm. Depending on the results, additional treatments for men may be recommended to improve sperm health and function.
- Intrauterine insemination: In IUI, we place the sperm directly into the uterus at the time of ovulation to increase the likelihood of fertilization. IUI can be used to bypass sperm-related challenges by placing the highest motility sperm directly into the woman’s uterus, and can also help overcome problems with the cervix or other barriers to conception.
