5 fertility treatments to try if you can’t get pregnant

Fertility drugs

Fertility drugs, both pills and injections, are popular among those having trouble conceiving.

Fertility drugs are common among women who are having trouble getting pregnant. The popularity of this fertility treatment is due in part to the high success rates. Both the use of pills, like clomiphene, and injections (gonadotropins) can be used to help a woman produce more eggs each month leading to a better chance of getting pregnant. On average, 10 percent of women find success per cycle with the number climbing even higher to 20-60 percent after 3-6 months of treatment.

  1. I was only able to get pregnant once with the assistance of a specialist. When I asked about getting pregnant again he told me it was a miracle it worked the first tine. He said I had no more eggs and if I wanted to be pregnant again I would need to get an egg and have it implanted after it was viable. I am now 66 and was wondering if there was any possibility fir me to have another child.

    1. Hi Nancy, I’m sure your infertility doctor has discussed the risks and probabilities of a pregnancy at your age. I never say never but it would be an incredibly risky choice to try and get pregnant at this point!
