Once a diagnosis has been made, we have specific treatment plans that will overcome every cause of infertility. While there are common elements, each plan is customized to the individual patient. A vital concept to remember while undergoing treatments is to know what to expect. For example, the normal ability for a couple to conceive approximates only 20% per month. It is not as easy as most people think. Only 1 in 5 couples are pregnant per month when everything functions correctly. It takes an average of 3 to 6 months for most to conceive. Thus, if a treatment effectively overcomes the barrier causing infertility, then we typically expect only 20% to get pregnant. This is the reason why all treatments extend over a 3 to 6 month time frame. The second concept that is equally important is to know when to quit a certain treatment plan. Too many people quit too soon or extend ineffective treatments too long leading to further frustration and hopelessness. It is crucial to see a skilled physician properly trained in treating infertility for the highest rate and least cost of achieving a successful pregnancy.
