New ways of infertility treatment

I wonder how much has the infertility treatment moved forward in this century. I suspect the achievements are really great. Was anyone here treated in some revolutionary way, ended with success? Or friends and close people? It would be nice to share your experience. I am interested in figures and facts. Or links at the very least. Thanks!

Have you ever heard about IVG? I have read some articles on the internet. It looks like a breakthrough in infertility treatment.

Yes, just a little. It deals with stem cells and producing sperm and eggs of them. It has been successfully tested on mice. Honestly, I have accepted that as one of the numerous rumors concerning infertility treatment. Do you have any trustworthy info on that? Or any info at all? If so, share it, please. I do not want to surf the net in vain.

These are not rumors at all. The success with mice has initiated wide discussion about ethical issues of IVG implementation. Have you ever heard the term "multiple parenting"? If no, google the internet. In short, it means that a baby can have more than two parents. Up to 32. Plus a possibility to create unlimited storage of sperm and eggs with programmed features. It may lead to "baby farms" where the kids will be grown for the need of reproduction. Sounds scary.

These are definitely the problems to discuss. Public opinion and legislation are not ready for such twists in society. The traditional family is under threat of radical changes. But same-sex couples will get a chance to have a baby. As well as those who failed to be fertilized by IVF. Next, the single-parent reproduction is also available with IVG. I feel a bit terrified already. What is ahead? Matrix? I wonder...

I think it pretty far from Matrix but the things definitely may go that way. I think until a woman is a key figure to give a birth, the things will not radically change. Be IVG applied to the single parent, a same-sex couple, or multiple parenting, it will result in the insemination of a woman. If the scientists invent the substitute of a woman body as an environment for growing an embryo, then I will not bet a penny that Matrix is a fiction of Vachovsky brothers. Or sisters, as for now. We must watch the progress in IVG researches. It is inevitable after all. Like cars, planes, etc. First cars, then traffic rules. That is how it works.

Hi ladies. You have raised some interesting points. We really do need to look more closely. Infertility is so common nowadays. Due to our lifestyles or poor food choices, more women than ever are infertile now. This has created a huge need for innovative techniques to tackle this issue. Now, many of these treatments might be safe. Many have also been tried and tested. However, there are a few which are downright scams. The confusion is increased due to the practices of some individuals or institutions. Their incompetency has raised doubts about many treatment options available. Many of those might have been perfectly suitable if administered by a competent professional. Infertility treatment is like a labyrinth. There is just so much information and options available. One needs to be very careful while navigating through this.

Hello there. Thank you for posting this. I too am looking for a viable solution. I have been trying to conceive for the past two years now. I have PCOS. This has made things difficult. I am just not able to conceive. Recently I visited a fertility specialist. She recommended going for assisted conception techniques. Such as IVF. She claimed that it is highly effective. However, I am confused. How exactly does IVF work? Will it be effective in my case? Do I still need to seek treatment for my PCOS?

Hi. Yes, there have been so many advancements. It is almost astounding! It had once seemed that infertility was incurable. Now, that is not the case. There is now a solution for almost every case. I too have heard great things about a couple of options. For example, there is a woman I know who had tumorous growth in her uterus. She had to get a hysterectomy done to prevent it from spreading. She was sure that she would never have kids. You can imagine my surprise when I met her earlier this year. She was 36 weeks pregnant! She had gotten a uterus implantation. So, her reproductive system was as good new. She had her first baby a few months ago.

Hello everyone. We have so much to be grateful about. Science has changed our world. Now, infertility is no longer a life sentence. 3 years ago, I went to the OB and heard the fateful words. “I’m afraid you can’t have a child”. It would have been easy to just give. To give in to the depression that I could feel approaching me. However, my husband is a strong man. I am so glad for that. He didn’t give up and he didn’t let me either. So, there I was at a fertility clinic. I went for a treatment, ICSI. It took 3 tries before we were successful. On the 3rd attempt, we managed to conceive.

Yes, it's true that infertility treatments have really moved forward. Although I haven't heard of IVG, I conceived via IVM. Being a TTC mom for more than 2.5 years I was diagnosed with a severe case of PCOs. I couldn't wait more I needed to conceive as soon as possible. It felt like I was falling into a pit. Life felt gloomy and sad so we opted for IVF. Then a major blow came when our fertility specialist said that my ovaries won't be able to stand the stimulation medicines as there is a risk of OHSS( ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome). Then she suggested going for IVM. In which immature eggs are collected from unstimulated ovaries under ultrasound scan. Immature eggs are then matured in the laboratory for 48 hours. Sperm injections are used for fertilization and then the embryos are transferred into the womb. After the successful procedure today I am a mother of a gorgeous 1-year boy.

"Yes, I have something to share too :)

My husband left me when doctors told me that I was infertile (about five years ago). I did not make peace with loneliness, however. I met this new guy and God, he's so caring. He is divorced too. We are marrying next year. We already have planned to go to Europe for surrogacy, a great alternative to natural pregnancy. I have done a lot of research on this. Many people recommended us clinics and I'm having a really hard time on deciding which one would best suit us.

Most of the suggestions are for a clinic in Ukraine. I have also read good reviews about it online. I think we will probably be going there then. Which clinic would you girls recommend?"

Interesting post. I see many infertile couples made their wishes come true via these alternatives to the natural pregnancy. My experience is not different from the others. I also have a [surrogate] baby. We were TTC for God knows how many years. I lost all the hope. My husband's friend once came over and all of a sudden he asked us about our children. That was embarrassing. We told him about my infertility. He told us about the alternatives. We are kinda old folks and did not know if there is an option. Never explored. Never wondered. He referred us to visit a clinic in Ukraine for surrogacy process. We booked our seats for Ukraine the very next month. The clinic staff provided us a free consultation. They told us everything about it. We signed a few papers and left. They called us after two months saying that they found the perfect surrogate mother for our baby. We visited the clinic again. Met with the surrogate. They took my egg and my DH's sperm and the embryo was placed inside SM's womb. Right after nine months or so she gave birth to our first child :)

Hi all, I'm glad that I stumbled upon this thread. I got the chance to read so many valuable insights. There is no question of infertility issue being so common these days. It leaves the couples sad and unhappy in their lives. One of the many contributing factors I think is our food. It's so not what a woman needs to get conceived. Thanks to the scientists that they have been awake and working on alternatives to natural pregnancy. Most common alternatives are surrogacy and IVF. However, when someone is going to alternatives, it's important that he/she selects a good clinic. Many clinics are these days a fraud. They are not well-equipped with the tech that the process requires and hence risk the lives and fortunes of their patients. It's always better to do a little research before selecting a clinic. Ask on different forums. Ask your friends and colleagues. That way, the risk of coming across a fraudulent clinic is significantly reduced.

Yeah! Too many infertile women all over the world and tension are increasing. Women have the utmost desire of having their own children but it all goes away when they find about infertility problem. My story is a bit different because I am fertile, but still not given the choice to become a mother. Yeah, that’s true. My heart disease is the hurdle in front of my utmost desire, to become a mother. Well, I had to accept the fate and move on and I did the same. My husband did not lose hope and he did whatever he could. He looked for some other way for me to give him a bay and he did find one. His friend told him about a clinic offering surrogacy and my husband told me about that. He just said to me that I have got the consultation date for you and we are going to visit the clinic next week. The time passed by and now I have a healthy baby boy. I hope my story was not boring for you. See ya!

Hi Nicholesh. The world has progressed a lot over time. Technology has revolutionized the world. In past decades, the field of conceptive medicine has seen tremendous advances. Researchers have picked up a superior comprehension of embryonic advancement. Researchers have refined their utilization of fruitfulness medications and have thought of progressive strategies to distinguish and avert infection in babies – the alleged "three-DNA babies" is maybe the best case. IVG is another revolutionary case. The technique is redefining the thought of what is conceivable in conceptive and regenerative medication, as it opens up the likelihood of making human sperm and eggs from an incited stem cell. I am not sure of how people will respond to such developments. They have not even accepted surrogacy until now. People think that it is unnatural. I wonder how people would be accepting such treatments. Such infertility procedures are great for a same-sex couple. I wonder where the world will be after more 50 or 100 years. It was so hard to treat infertility in the past. However, now there are many ways to treat infertility and the scientists are still discovering new ways.

Hi there. Truly, I know yet only a bit. There is a strategy known as IVG. It manages undeveloped cells and delivering sperm and eggs to them. It has been effectively tried on mice. The accomplishment with mice has started a wide discourse about moral issues of IVG usage. These are unquestionably the issues to examine. Popular assessment and enactment are not prepared for such curves in the public arena. The conventional family is at risk of radical changes. Nevertheless, same-sex couples will get an opportunity to have a child along with the individuals who neglected to be treated by IVF. Next, the single-parent proliferation is likewise accessible with IVG. I feel somewhat alarmed as of now. The medicinal sciences have changed this world. I think science is making the things conceivable that were an outlandish couple of years back. I wonder what will happen next.

Hey Nicolesh, how do you do? What’s up these days? I am glad that you are interested knowing about infertility treatments. One is IVF, which is commonly known as test tube baby. 2nd one is Surrogacy, It allows you to have your biological baby from another woman's womb. See, how interesting these procedures are. another one is IUI, It places a sperm inside women's uterus to facilitate fertilization. My neighbor had IVF procedure and now she is a mother of a beautiful daughter. She looks exactly like her. These procedures may take some time but are effective.

Heya! Seems like you are having a great curiosity attitude well its good. Anyhow have you heard the news that older women can conceive babies through new techniques in the UK? In these techniques includes converting the old eggs into young ones by injecting batteries that are transferred from a young cell in the ovaries. Basically, rejuvenation of eggs occurs in this technique. Hope this will your drag your curiosity level at peak :D

Hi Nocolesh. Yes, there are major improvements. I am so glad to see that. This was much needed. There are just too many people going through infertility. Both men and women. So, these advancements are just what they wanted. One treatment that really intrigues me is ICSI. It is suitable for almost everyone who is eligible for IVF. It can considerably improve the odds of success with IVF. It has a considerably high success rate. In fact, some studies suggest that it improves the effectiveness of IVF by 50-80 percent. It is particularly useful in cases of male factor infertility. This is good because there are several options for female infertility but not many for male infertility.

Hey Nicolesh! I totally agree with your point of view. Infertility has really increased over the past many years and it keeps on increasing. I don’t know what the reason behind all this is but I know that it is not good. I was diagnosed with a heart disease known as Mitral stenosis after the first year of my marriage. I was fertile and still not able to get pregnant. That really tore my emotions apart. There was no treatment for me to get pregnant except my heart disease cure. I did not lose hope and one day my friend told me about surrogacy. I was not sure about it but when I discussed it with my hubby, he supported me and we went for surrogacy. Now I am a mother of one child. The majority were the infertile women having surrogacy at the clinic and the process has so many successful cases. This is my story that I wanted to share with you.

Well, infertility issues are being caused because of a lot of reasons. There are no such symptoms of it before it happens so you can be able to control it. Women only come to know about their infertility problem when they cannot conceive. There are a lot of treatments and ways available to have your own baby even if you are fertile of having some other problem like I have, a heart disease which does not let me become a mother. Despite all the bad time I had to go through, I always stayed positive and finally got a solution and that was surrogacy. This is the best reproductive program I have ever see or read of and I believe in it because today I am a mother just because of surrogacy.

Hey, ladies! Surrogacy worked out for us ( Considered as the only way out possible due to my born deffect - no womb). I don't know really much about the newest tendencies in the field. Have heard of some of them from this thread. Found it quite interesting :)

All the fertility treatments are unpredictable. You never know which will work for you. I have tried medicines. They didn't work for us. Then I even went with IUI. I went on 2 rounds that too failed. I am also these days reading about IVF. I am hoping that will work. There are so many success stories that I have been reading. So I am hoping it works for me. I really want this infertility journey to end for me. I am honestly done with it. Everyone says that you shouldn't give up but it isn't that easy. I have been struggling a lot. However, I am grateful that technology has immensely improved.
