Essential Tips Before Starting Your Fertility Treatment

Understanding when to seek professional help is crucial. The time factor plays an important role in the success of fertility treatments.

The world of assisted reproduction offers various options and technologies. The effectiveness of these treatments lies in finding the correct diagnosis and the most appropriate treatment for your particular situation.

When selecting an assisted reproduction clinic, consider several critical aspects. This includes the clinic's success rates in achieving pregnancies, the experience and qualifications of its medical team, the quality of its facilities, and its reputation both nationally and internationally. Look for a clinic that provides you with quality care, where you feel listened to and supported, and where information about your fertility treatment is given to you in a transparent and understandable way.

Many suffer from infertility

In Mexico, one in six couples has infertility problems and, during the struggle to achieve pregnancy, it is normal to experience feelings such as frustration, anger, depression, anxiety or even relationship problems.

However, once you know your options, you will discover that the fertility treatments available today increase your hopes of having a successful pregnancy like never before. In addition to specialized medical advice, at Ingenes we have an emotional support unit that will help you be in the best condition to face assisted reproduction treatment and maximize the probability of achieving pregnancy.

Recognize when you should seek help.

If you and your partner have tried to have a baby during the last 12 months without success, or have suffered miscarriages, it is time to consult an infertility specialist. The World Health Organization (WHO) speaks of infertility when a woman under 35 years of age has had unprotected sexual relations for 12 months without achieving pregnancy, a period that is shortened to 6 months in women over 35 years of age.

Remember that you can be infertile even if you already have children. According to statistics compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 11 percent of couples who have conceived in the past suffer from infertility.

The woman's age is key to the success of the treatment

After a woman reaches age 35, her chances of becoming pregnant with her own eggs decrease considerably. The natural pregnancy rate for women under 30 years of age is 20 to 30 percent per month, however, by age 40, the probability of conceiving with one's own eggs decreases to 5 percent and the risk of spontaneous abortions and genetic alterations as Down Syndrome increases.

Even with the most advanced treatments, it is rare for a woman over 42 years of age to become pregnant. However, women who use donated eggs can have children after the age of 50. If you have waited longer than necessary to seek help, at Ingenes we are fully qualified to give you a timely diagnosis and design the appropriate treatment for your case.

Where to find help

Most couples (about 75 percent) start by visiting a general gynecologist. This can be a good first step, however, since assisted reproduction clinics are specifically designed to solve fertility problems, more and more obstetricians-gynecologists recommend going to them from the first suspicion of infertility in the couple. If you decide to visit a fertility clinic like Ingenes, you will be seen by a reproductive biologist, that is, an obstetrician-gynecologist with one or several subspecialties in reproductive endocrinology, who is an expert in solving fertility problems and will provide you with more complete advice for your problem.

Infertility, is a problem for men and women

For years it was believed that women were responsible for infertility, but today we know that it affects men and women equally, so joint evaluation of the couple is essential to obtain an adequate diagnosis.
