Infertility Definition causes and treatment- Florence, Arizona
Infertility is usually diagnosed when a couplehas been trying to get pregnant for a year. Infertility is usually diagnosed when a couplehas been trying to get pregnant for a year. And by trying, I mean not using anything tostop. I don't mean working really hard. Sometimes people will say well we've not used any preventionfor five years but we've only been trying for the last six months. No no, that's fiveyears, that counts. So that's the general definition is one year of trying or one yearof not using prevention. But there are a couple of exceptions. One of them is if a woman isover thirty five, then we don't want to wait longer than about six months because thereis an effective age and we want to get going on diagnosing and treating any problem. Andthe other time I would say don't wait a year.
Is if the woman's cycles are really irregular.She's probably not releasing an egg every is if the woman's cycles are really irregular.She's probably not releasing an egg every month and so trying for a year's probablynot going to get very far, and I would ask that that person come in sooner too. Peopledo think it's always an issue with a woman, of course that sort of makes sense becauseshe is the one who gets pregnant. But that's not actually the case all the time. Abouta third of the time, it's a problem with the male partner. So that's part of the reasonto come in and talk and we outline the different tests that we might do and then go from there.The order of the tests would depend somewhat on the history of the couple. But checkingthe male partner is usually done pretty early.
In the process because it's a pretty simpletest. It's not very expensive, it's not painful in the process because it's a pretty simpletest. It's not very expensive, it's not painful and we can get that checked off the list prettyearly. Infertility breaks down into generally three areas. And it's really basic. You needsperm, you need eggs and they have to be able to meet each other. About a third of the timeit'll be a problem with the sperm, and about a third of the time it'll be a problem withthe egg production, or the egg quality or the hormones and about a third of the timeit'll be the fallopian tubes, which is the area in the body where the sperm and the egghave to meet each other. And then there are about ten percent of people where we reallycan't find a reason and we have treatments.
For them as well. for them as well.
What Are Success Rates for IUI or IVF
(text on screen): Fertility Authority. Your Most Trusted Source (text on screen): Fertility Authority. Your Most Trusted Source Ask the Experts What are the success rates of IUI vs. IVF? Simon Kipersztok, Shady Grove Fertility: The success rate for IUIs will stubbornly hover around the 8 percent, whereas for the IVF will be in the 50 percent. One way of trying to understand that is to ask yourself: Our success would mean 100 percent, so how many times does 8 percent fit into 100? That's about 15 times. So, it would mean that, potentially, you could need 15 IUI cycles to get to that pregnancy. I hope you get pregnant on the very first cycle, and some patients achieve that; about 8 percent of patients.
Whereas, with the IVF, at 50; 55 percent success rate, your probability of achieving that pregnancy, and hopefully delivering, Whereas, with the IVF, at 50; 55 percent success rate, your probability of achieving that pregnancy, and hopefully delivering, would be; you know, you can fit one to two IVF cycles into a hundred. So, that would mean that within one to two cycles, you could potentially achieve that pregnancy. There are situations where IUIs can be very effective. For example, if there is a single woman, or a woman in a homosexual relationship, who have completely normal, regular periods and all of the objective measurements of their fertility are normal, and all they need is what's missing: sperm, the use of donor sperm can be very effective, because you are just replacing what is missing. OK? Sometimes there are patients, for example, that have had a procedure in their cervix.
And, again, they have a completely normal fertility profile except for that opening of the womb that, you know, And, again, they have a completely normal fertility profile except for that opening of the womb that, you know, has been narrowed by the surgical procedure, whether it is because of congenital birth or because of related to an abnormal pap smear and cervical dysplasia, then bypassing that cervix with intrauterine insemination as an initial approach makes, definitely, a lot of sense. But, on the other hand, if you have patients that have moderate to severe abnormalities in their sperm, or individuals that have one tube that is blocked and the other is open, or women that are over the age of 38, ', the approach of intrauterine insemination very stubbornly would remain at the 5 to 8 percent per cycle. And, you know, I look at my patients and I say, I hope they get pregnant the first cycle. And many say, quot;It's me, the one that is going to get pregnant the first cycle.quot;.
But, unfortunately, and I hate to repeat it, that probability of success, study after study, center after center, But, unfortunately, and I hate to repeat it, that probability of success, study after study, center after center, shows that that figure of 8 percent remains very stubbornly there. So, the in vitro fertilization would be a much better approach. (text on screen): Fertility Authority. Your Most Trusted Source.
