As a parent I consider myself extremely lucky. I know that I am fortunate to have the family that I do and I count my blessings every day. On the blog today I wanted to cover a little about those who have not yet fallen pregnant. I know that it can be a difficult subject to talk about. I also know that the medical profession has a whole host of treatment options out there. As scary as it can be, if you have been trying to get pregnant and have been unsuccessful after 12 months then make sure you see your doctor. There are often small underlying reasons that can make it harder for you to get pregnant, but these are also treatable.
Dealing With Pregnancy Difficulties
If you have been trying to get pregnant for a while then you might need to concentrate your efforts a little more. Look at your cycle and consider the best time to try and get pregnant – there are guides on the internet to help with this. If you are unhealthy then making lifestyle changes can help with this too. It is also important not to panic, it does take some couples much longer than others to get pregnant. This is especially the case if you have been on contraception previously.
If it has been 12 months, then you should seek help from your doctor. They’ll be able to make recommendations to you. On top of that they can offer a range of treatments and different options that are open to you. These can sometimes be expensive, but there is also sometimes help available to you. You should also find out about fertility treatment overseas in case this is something that could help.
The way that you move forward will depend very much on your circumstances and what the problems are. However, one thing you should remember is that there is help at hand for you. Being unable to conceive can be a difficult time, so make sure you get help and support. It is easy to concentrate on what is physically wrong, but you also need to think about your well-being. Speak to your fertility doctor about the help and support that is out there for you. It can be hard to talk about but sometimes talking to other people in the same position as you can be a massive help.
Beyond this there are lots of fertility options open to you, so don’t think that all is lost. Instead, you can explore the likes of IVF, surrogacy, artificial insemination and egg donation to see if these suit you. Your doctor should be able to give you plenty of information on each of these. On top of that they should be able to give you advice as to which route is going to be best suited to you. Just remember that you don’t need to rush your decision. Instead take time out to think everything through and make the best decision for you as a couple.
