Judging by the most recent annual report done by the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology, the amount of American women who have used medical assistance to get pregnant only continues to climb. More couples are turning to fertility specialists than ever before. This is not necessarily because fertility in America is declining, but is most likely due to the fact that people are choosing to wait to have children until they are older.
For better or for worse (okay, mostly the latter), fertility clinics have a reputation that often precedes even an individual’s initial visit. Perhaps couples looking to conceive a child somehow see going to a fertility clinic as an admission of failure on their part, or maybe they simply aren’t aware enough about how sophisticated these procedures have become and just how beneficial they can be in boosting their chances of bringing a new baby into this world.
If you have found that you are having a hard time getting pregnant and you live in Texas, there are a number of Texas fertility centers that you can choose from. Having a wide selection is a plus, because not just any fertility center will be the right fit for you. You will want to weed through all of your options, and since you cannot visit each and every one, you will need some tips on how to go about the initial elimination process.
It’s no secret that women are waiting longer than ever to have children. In fact, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control, “The average age of women at first birth has risen over the past 4 decades. In 2012 there were more than 9 times as many first births to women aged 35 years and older than there were 4 decades earlier.”
