Can All Infertility Cases Be Treated Today?

Post by Silverbackman » Wed Aug 23, 2006 8:43 am

A friend of mine is marrying someone that may have infertility problems. I however hear now a days that all reproductive problems can be cured medically.

Is this true? Can all forms of infertility be treated and cured today with methods such as in vitro fertilization and other assisted reproductive technologies as well as medication or surgery? And in all these cases the mother can still reproduce as much as she wants, correct?

Or are some people just born sterile and no matter what medical procedure; they cannot reproduce?

Yes correct some couples would have to resort to adoption; there's exceptions to everything but think of a woman with an underdeveloped or absent uterus due to developmental growth alterations or cancer.

Well, the biggest problem with fertility treatment is money. In the US not every health insurance will cover fertility treatment (although it is mandated in certain states... like massachusetts). In-vitro stuff is very expensive... and there are people who try several times and; sadly, haven't had a child.( It can be really discouraging to ... have to shell out so much money and STILL not have things work... and that's something that your friend should be prepared to accept, if she ends up doing in-vitro)

It's pretty much a situation by situation thing (depending on WHY there are fertility problems). The best way to address it is seeing a doctor who specializes in fertility issues. That kind of doc. will help your friend get a proper diagnosis.. and then seek a resolution.

... tell her not to give up hope!

wishing her (and you) the best!

We must be sure for the condition of the individual, whether it is a infertility or sterility. Sterility cannot be cured but some kinds of infertility can be treated, depend on what things cause that state. For instance, physical, hormonal, nervous system, or even integrated.

If you refer to some program to get babies, besides natural way to ge it, there are some artificial techniques, which is common nowadays, and even legal.
