Baby Fever: Dealing with Fertility Issues

The dream of having a significant other, big house and children is become a challenge for more and more North American’s. Infertility is defined as an unsucessful pregnancy when trying for a year or more. When I was younger, I wouldnt have thought fertility issues would be such a common concern amoung many young couples. In fact, there was an article posted in the national post that suggests that infertility has nearly doubled over the last two decades. Dealing with fertility issues can not only be stressfull but extremely costly. Gerneally speaking women aged over 35 are at higher risk of fertility, although more couples between 25-35 are experiencing fertility issues.

Ironically fertility issues are linked with a woman’s age and often times some people tend to blame women for these issues. There is clearly a lack of education with these individuals. In fact, 35%-40% of the times the issues is a woman’s biology, 35%-40% is male infertility and the remaining percent is a combination of the male/female according to a study posted on webmd. So the true fact is there is no one person to blame and the issue belongs to you as a couple not you or your significant other as an individual.

Fortunately there are ways to deal with fertility including IUI and IVF treatments. IUI is typically the first choice due to its significantly lower cost ($300-$500) compared to IVF ($8,000-$15,000). This article isnt a science lesson on each but rather the intent is to help you understand that there are options to deal with infertility. Some are lifestyle changes, while others require medical treatment. Lifestyle changes include things like no smoking, weight loss, ample vitamins, and reduced alochol intake.

So you might be asking why I’m writing about this? Well this is a common issue some of our readers email us about. They are frustrated and concerned about their lack of pregnancy. Surprisingly enough, a good chunk of them wrote back to us and told us of their success stories. Some required life style changes while others required medical treatment. In the end how they got there becomes irrelevant, the result of parenthood is all that counts. Do not let fertility issues get the best of you, rather educate yourself on the why and the how and be determined to find ways to make your dreams a reality. Also please write to us about your story so that we can share your joy as well.
