There are many possible treatments for infertility. Not all treatments are appropriate for all couples, and your physician will direct you towards the best approach for your specific situation.
In general, we encourage patients to be as aggressive as they feel comfortable. This comfort level can change with time. Many patients may start with conservative treatments and then proceed to more aggressive treatments if they do not get pregnant.
Exactly how aggressive any one couple should be will depend on a number of factors such as the woman’s age and what the couple is willing to tolerate from an emotional, physical, financial or religious perspective.
Additional tests may also be needed depending on the treatment. Your physician will advise you on what testing you require.
