Fertility Specialist Advice On Your Hormones and Oscillation
[TRANSCRIPT OF ANSWER]
“Fertility specialists can help you in many ways. We can give you advice on just helping you with timing too, making sure everything’s okay. We’re not, sex specialists. You might need a psychologist or if you have erectile dysfunction, I’m your partner. Might need to see a urologist to help with this or family medicine doctor to start with, but we can help you with just making sure you’re giving advice on just making sure you’re doing things, timing things correctly. We might be able to help you with just helping you figure out when oscillation is occurring. The number one thing that when you come to see us is we’re gonna look at your hormones to look at your anatomy. What we’re going to look at your partner’s sperm is going to take that information and decide if there’s anything that’s driving you to not be able to have a pregnancy efficiently.
Methods To Help You get Pregnant
And then our job is to help you do it more efficiently. So meaning, unless you have no sperm or unless you have no eggs, you’re not sterile. And if we did nothing, you would eventually hopefully get pregnant.
My job is to help you get pregnant a little quicker and we can do things like give you medication to help you articulate better, meaning release an egg better. We can give you medications to grow eggs a little bit more frequently so that we might be able to improve your probability of success with an occasional twin.
We can help your husband’s sperm by putting it in, washing it, and putting in size your uterus or womb so that maybe they’ll improve your probability of success.
And if need be, we’ll do IVF where we can actually grab your egg, put your partner’s sperm with it, and help you grow an embryo and have a child. IVF has changed our field completely. It’s become extremely good at what it does and it usually overcomes most fertility problems, but our hope is that it is not the first step for most people because it is more invasive and a lot of times just talking to us and helping you understand what’s going on usually helps you figure out how to move forward.”
