Not every fertility issue means that you and or/ your partner is infertile. These days, medical interventions have successfully helped individuals conceive healthy babies in their numbers. Many fertility issues, for both men and women, merely need a little help, and specialists have all the tools required to make the process as hopeful as possible.
That said, treatment can be an invasive process and options will come with risks, costs and potential side effects, as well as benefits. When undergoing treatment for a fertility difficulty, weigh up all the advantages and disadvantages. Treatment is ultimately a personal decision. It will be you, and you alone who goes through it. You and or/ your partner should be mentally, physically and emotionally prepared for what will be.
Female treatment can include:
- Medications for ovulation abnormalities and problems

- ART (Assisted reproductive technology, such as in vitro fertilisation, zygote intrafallopian transfer and intracytoplasmic sperm injection)
- IUI (intrauterine insemination)
Male treatments can include:
- Surgery (to repair varicocele, hormonal abnormalities and tubule defects)
