Fertility and Infertility

Fertility treatment in Manchester at BMI the Alexandra Hospital

Being able to conceive is generally taken for granted. But estimates have been made that as many as one in seven couples experience difficulty or delay in conceiving.* 

Many people have no idea that they have fertility issues until they start trying for a baby, and the causes of infertility can sometimes be hard to establish. However, at this stage, signs and symptoms can indicate issues. For women, irregular, painful or heavy periods could indicate a problem. For men, it may be an inability to ejaculate properly or problems with their sperm count, for example. For those unable to conceive, the most crucial element to understand is that infertility is simply a symptom. The causes of infertility are numerous, and identifying the specific barrier to conception is of paramount importance. 

What to do if you think you have fertility issues 

Infertility cannot be officially confirmed until you have been trying to conceive through unprotected sex for at least a year, at which point you can see a GP who may refer you to a fertility specialist. 

What are the common treatments? 

There are a number of treatments available once your specific problem has been identified. Fertility drugs are usually the first treatment for women who aren’t ovulating. Sometimes assisted reproduction treatments are also suggested, including the most well-known treatment, IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation), when eggs and sperm are collected and fertilised in the laboratory before the resulting embryo is transferred to the womb.
