MODERN LIFESTYLES: THE NEWEST FERTILITY TREATMENTS: HOW MODERN WOMEN CAN BUY TIME
- Ficha técnica
ABOUT THE BOOK Infertility prevents couples who have unprotected sex on a regular basis from achieving pregnancy. Infertility can be both primary and secondary; primary infertility is when the couple cannot get pregnant and never have done so before, and secondary is when a couple is having difficulty conceiving after at least one previously successful pregnancy. Fertility issues can occur in both men and women, with each sex having their own unique and treatable conditions that can prevent pregnancy. The majority of couples can resolve such issues by addressing modifiable risk factors, taking fertility medications, surgery, or assisted reproduction therapies. As age is a factor that increases many medical causes of infertility, it is important that women who want to get pregnant consider all of the options that are available to them in order to increase their chances. Women who find themselves to be infertile usually suffer from ovulation disorders, but some cases can be due to other conditions that affect the reproductive system, as well as lifestyle factors and age. Those who suffer from ovulation disorders will find that their monthly menstrual cycle does not always result in an egg being released, which prevents them from becoming pregnant. Such conditions can arise as a part of the natural ageing process, from primary conditions such as polycistic ovarian syndrome, or as a secondary factor due to conditions such as AIDS or poor thyroid function. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Clomidane Citrate The most common infertility medication used in women who find that they are suffering from ovulation disorders is Clomidane citrate. The commercial name most commonly used for this infertility drug is Clomid, a drug that you will often find being discussed on pregnancy and infertility forums. As a drug that is taken orally, Clomid is designed to regulate ovulation, but can occasionally lead to more than one egg being released, resulting in multiple pregnancies.
