Types of Testing and Treatment for Infertility
Many options are available to you and your partner when it comes to fertility treatment. Recent advances in medical technology have made these treatments more effective and accessible to everyone.
Underlying medical issues may be the cause of infertility. In all cases, testing and treatment are necessary to discover the issue and help you conceive whenever possible. Let’s take a look at some of the treatments that are available.
The procedure allows your doctor look inside your uterus with a narrow tube-like instrument. Several factors can be determined with this infertility treatment, such as detecting the reason for irregular bleeding, heavy bleeding, or unexplained miscarriages. The health provider can also remove polyps, scar tissues, non-cancerous growths, or adhesions during this procedure.
This is an x-ray procedure used to determine whether the fallopian tubes are open and if the inside of the uterus is normal. This is also an outpatient procedure and takes very little
time to perform.
This procedure is used to treat endometriosis, a known source for infertility. Endometrial tissue growth will be removed through laparoscopy surgery. It can also remove adhesions or scar tissue. It’s a minimally invasive procedure long done with a thin tube with a high-intensity light and a high-resolution camera.
If your doctor is unable to determine why you and your partner are unable to conceive, other infertility treatments will be discussed. They may include hormone injections, insemination, or additional surgery.
