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

Inseminations

Insemination, or IUI, can be done with a partner’s sperm or a donor’s.

Intrauterine inseminations (IUI) is targeted toward couples that are not able to conceive due to the male. With IUI, doctors use a thin tube that introduces sperm into the woman’s reproductive tract. Using either the partner’s sperm or a donor’s sperm, inseminations increase the number of sperm reaching the fallopian tubes, further increasing chances of pregnancy.

  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!
