Getting pregnant is not always as easy as it is meant to be. While for some, it happens all too easy, a fumbled mistake in the back seat of a car and a baby nine months later. For others, it can be a complicated process, plenty of trying the traditional way and then with the help of science. In many instances, it still fails to yield the desired results. But, for people who want to be parents, it is almost always possible to find a way to make it happen. Let’s take a quick look at infertility and the ways and means of overcoming it.
What is it?
It is worth starting by saying that the inability to fall pregnant is surprisingly common. Statistics suggest that as many as 15 percents of all couples are not able to conceive naturally. A diagnosis of infertility is made if a couple has tried unsuccessfully for one year to fall pregnant but have not managed to do so. If this is your scenario then after a year looks to visit an infertility clinic Melbourne has several to choose from; as do all the other major cities in Australia. The clinic will advise you on all your options.
For some people, the idea of adoption is difficult to contemplate, but this is an emotional decision rather than a rational one. There are so many children with no parents in the world who desperately want, or need, to be adopted. Logically and ethically it makes a whole lot of sense to adopt a child and fill it with love – to raise it as your own. This is an increasingly common solution and one which is generally far more cost-effective than medical solutions.
The adage that if at first, you don’t succeed, try and try again, holds true in the pregnancy realm. Sex is fun, or at least it is meant to be. So, do it and enjoy it. For many, it becomes a pressurized act, more about making a baby than about an expression of love. Make it about bonding and pleasure between a man and woman and take away the focus on conceiving – you might just be surprised by the results.
Unpack the medical
There are lots of medical interventions that can take place and once you have spent time at the clinic and allowed them to make a diagnosis they will advise you on eth best solution. Sometimes it is the man who lacks sperm count. Sometimes it might be the woman who has ovarian issues (like polycystic ovaries), the reality is that there are lots of reasons why a couple struggle to conceive. And there are lots of solutions that can be made. From invitro fertilization to surrogacy or fertility treatments or donors, you will likely be presented with a range of options to consider. Don’t rush anything, consider all your options, and know that whatever you go with, you will love that child unconditionally from the moment that you first lay eyes on it.
