To treat the disease in women infertility doctors recommend counting the ovulation day, which is the only day in month when a woman is able to become pregnant. Ovulation day is counted taking into consideration the average body temperature, changes of mucilage, and LH levels, or luteinizing hormones levels. Ovulation period may be determined both at home and in infertility clinics. There are various home tests, predictors of ovulation and electronic tests to count when exactly a woman will be ovulating this month. If you feel that you unable to hold the procedure at home, visit your doctor who will count the day in short time.
After you find out the day when you will be ovulating, you must plan your sex even if it sounds something funny. To increase their chances to conceive, a couple should not have sex five days before the ovulation day. It helps in case when a man has infertility problems. Male infertility is often caused by low sperm count, and 5-day continence before woman's ovulation helps to increase sperm count, thus increasing the possibility of pregnancy.
To increase chances to conceive infertility doctors also advise to shorten an exercise activity if it is high both to men and women. Strenuous physical exercises may lead to rarer ovulations in woman and lower sperm counts in men.
Men's home treatment without turning to infertility clinics is also possible. Men's fertility depends mostly on the body temperature. If it is too high, the sperm count lowers and the man has fewer chances to fertilize a woman. So, it is recommended that when problems with pregnancy emerge, a man should take care of his body temperature. Men are recommended to avoid diseases, which cause fever. After fever sperm needs much time to recover, even if the organism seems to be already healthy. Infertility doctors also advise men to avoid taking saunas and hot baths, because high temperature affects negatively man's sperm.
If this domiciliary treatment does not work and you cannot conceive after a year of regular sex, or you are after thirty years old and you cannot conceive after six month, then you are likely to have some serious problem and it is the time appeal to a medical help. Be very attentive when choosing among the infertility clinics. To choose a clinic and a doctor, study their success statistics. However, you should remember that statistics always depends on kind of diseases a clinic specializes in. If they have a majority of patients with serious health problems, the clinic will probably have lower success rate, but at the same time it is likely to have better experience than many other clinics do. Find out what statistics they offer to you. Successful pregnancy rates are always higher than successful childbirth rates, because unfortunately women after infertility treatment have miscarriages more often than other women.
Every woman and man has a chance to decrease the risk of infertility and avoid necessity of turning to infertility clinics. Avoid using tobacco, alcohol, drugs and chemicals; treat sexually transmitted diseases in time and keep your normal weight according to your height in order to avoid hormone imbalance.
