Infertility treatment can be an incredibly stressful journey. There are so many factors that contribute to it. A few examples would be the time that it takes, the loss of work, the costs involved, how your relationships are affected, and the toll the medications can take on your body. There are a lot of things you can do to manage this stress and get yourself through your treatment in a calmer frame of mind.
If you are hoping to get pregnant, you most likely already have some pregnancy tests in the bathroom cabinet waiting for your tiniest inkling of hope to arise. Therefore, when you do suspect that you are pregnant, you probably do not wait for very long before you check. When the test gives you a negative result it is incredibly disappointing, especially if you felt sure that you were pregnant this time around. In fact, so much so that it has you wondering if the test could possibly be wrong.
According to a recent CBS report, 50% of Americans are overweight and 30% of them are obese. Most people are aware of obesity causing hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease. A less known fact is that it also causes ovulation problems and contributes to infertility in women. A study in 2007 revealed that women who are majorly obese were 43% less likely to be able to conceive than those of a normal weight. Many doctors do not consider the weight of their patients who are struggling with infertility.
Whenever conceiving a child proves to be a consistent obstacle, it’s common for a woman to worry about the possibility that her uterus may not be fit to sustain the implantation of a fertile egg (i.e., how “baby-friendly” it may be). While most women will thankfully not face such challenges, they can arise in some women and may be worth considering if infertility appears to be delaying pregnancy by as much as a year. In fact, here are a few legitimate conditions that may require extra attention and indicate some underlying uterine issues.
When you’re trying to conceive a child, there are few possibilities you’re unwilling to explore to make your dream come true. The road to overcome infertility issues can be a long and difficult one, and as such, we’ll bet you’re always in search of another way to look at things, in the hopes of finally identifying a viable solution.
Not only can your health be seriously affected by a sexually transmitted disease (STD), but there are some that can go as far as putting your fertility at risk. According to the American Sexual Health Association, 15% of infertile women have an STD to blame. In these cases, infertility is caused by pelvic inflammatory disease, resulting in tubal damage in the reproductive organs. Both males and females are susceptible to damages such as these.
Whether you have been pregnant before, you know someone who has, or you have simply heard a lot about it through books and tv, it is pretty obvious that it is a big deal for your body. After all, this is something that your body doesn’t do every day. People get themselves ready for marathons with diet plans and exercise, but now you are creating a human being.
Up until this point, you have been taking the necessary steps to avoid the chance of getting pregnant, but now you are ready to have a baby. If this is indeed the case and you have begun to try, you may not get pregnant right away. It is actually not as easy as those who are trying to avoid it worry it might be. However, if you are concerned that your birth control is responsible for the difficulty you are experiencing, this is not the case.
Cancer treatments can take an immense toll on your body in many different ways. It is a tremendous feat to come out of such a consuming battle unscathed. No doubt, there are parts of the body that are left as a result without the ability to function quite the way they used to.
If you have been having difficulty getting pregnant, it’s possible you are wondering, “maybe my birth control has something to do with it.” It’s not a crazy thought, and many women don’t take birth control because they are afraid it will result in this very issue.
