Originally, IVF treatment as an infertility treatment was developed to help women who had blocked or damaged fallopian tubes trying to get pregnant. As it involves taking eggs directly from the ovaries, and putting embryos back into the womb, it bypasses the tubes completely, and has always been particularly good for helping women with tubal problems.

Nowadays, IVF treatment is far more widely used for a variety of female fertility problems, including difficulties with ovulation, endometriosis and unexplained infertility. As the IVF process has developed, it can now be used more often for male fertility problems, too.

Do you need IVF treatment?

Sometimes, couples know fairly soon after they start having fertility tests that they will need IVF if they are ever going to have a child, and the situation is clear cut. For others, however, it is not so straightforward, particularly where no cause has been found for the fertility problems.

When you’re going through the initial phase of tests, things can drag terribly, with weeks or even months between appointments, and you may feel that you are spending most of your time waiting. However, once you get into the next stage, it can seem as if you are catapulted into IVF, without having had time to think properly about whether it is something you really want or need.

Other infertility treatments to try first

Not everyone has concerns about IVF, but if you do, you may want to reassure yourself that you are sure you have tried every alternative option first. There are some other treatments you may be offered before IVF, but they may not always be appropriate for everyone. The type of treatment suggested will depend on the nature of the fertility problem.

Drug treatments may be offered for hormonal problems, as these can help regulate the female menstrual cycle and ovulation. Drugs are sometimes, although far less often, prescribed where there is a male-factor problem to try to improve the sperm count.

    Huge Help, December 10, 2002
    By A Customer

    I purchased this CD for my wife to use during our second IVF process. This time around, we were able to handle the entire process much better. It gave my wife a great deal of confidence in herself and she was able to handle the stress of the procedures much better this time. I highly recommend this CD to those going through an IVF.

    Not everyones cup of tea, June 17, 2004
    By A Customer

    I bought this cd as I was clutching at straws for a success in my 9th IVF cycle (havent had a baby yet). Our infertility is MF. I am still not pregnant but I did get to fall asleep each night in a very relaxed state.

    There are three tracks,20 minutes long. The first is for stimming and is about relaxing your mind and body. Stress is an important part of infertility and this track helps to relieve it. The second and third are all about focusing on imaginary light entering your body and caressing your innerself. I found it hard to relax trying to imagine all this and found myself listening to the first track over and over to put me to sleep.

    I dont think guided imagery is for me. I relaxation cd would have acheived a similar result in my case. Only order if you are desperate.

    Not bad, but overpriced, November 20, 2002
    By A Customer
    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    This CD did help me relax, but it did not help me get pregnant. I don’t blame the CD for that, though. My biggest objection is that I expected more for the money. The CD has three tracks. The first two tracks were virtually identical for the first 10 minutes and the last 2 or 3 minutes. That’s a lot when the tracks are only 20 minutes long. I also thought the sound quality wasn’t that great. I’m not unhappy that I purchased it, but I am disappointed that it cost so much.

    I originally wrote this review in 2002 after my second failed IVF attempt. In 2004 I got back on that roller coaster and used the CD during the whole cycle. I now have an 18 month old daughter to show for it. I believe that the CD helped and I plan to use when we transfer our remaining embryos next month

    Then lord have MERCY on us humans for mocking the process of death by treating heart disease, cancer, etc., by taking medication for our ills, and for using CPR to save lives. Hope there isn’t a loved one of yours that falls into that category!!

    So sad that many women in my unit, critical care, have died from cancers of the reproductive organs, namely ovaries, because of the hyperstimulation of oocytes which are not natural. You are maturing things out of it’s time-table. There are so many healthier ways. So terrible that a 37 year old woman died after they made 7 little people in a petri dish, froze 4 people in a freezer for “later use,” 1 died in utero and two were born. But mom died shortly after from cancer:( SO unnecessarily

    This is all about robotic manipulation mocking the gift of human sexuality and life….interesting and not ironic that it is a machine doing the talking….it exemplifies the ANTI human procedure such as this. This is so sterile, so dangerous, so mentally ill. To become pregnant in an operating room, with the absence of marital love and seual intercourse is just sickening. I stand with the Catholic Church. This is all wrong on SO many levels…

    It’s VERY different to compare playing around with life, MAKING it TO destroy it, because we “want” something (that which DIDN’T want, and contracepted — the main reason for infertility to boot — for a long time telling God we kick Him out of the bedroom and spit on life, then later..when we ‘want it” we will kill humans at the embryonic level (with SOULS mind you, …very different from a blood pressure pill or CPR my friend) to create, and create to kill. Your argument is a logical fallacy

    Besides, womens health is more than just “turning of” or “turning off” fertility. It’s about health and finding underlying causes of infertility. IVF does not want to, care to, nor seek to diagnose underlying causes. Check out the following, if you dare, for some truth. If you…care:) You tube “New Hope for Infertility NaPro technology”

    Home-Check Instant Ovulation Test is designed to detect the surge in Luteinizing Hormone (LH). The body always makes small amounts of LH but prior to ovulation it makes far more. This test device will detect the LH surge which happens in the middle of your menstrual cycle, about 1 -1.5 days before ovulation.

    Let’s talk science.
    1) Embryos are clusters of cells, not little people.
    2) Many many women get ovarian or mammalian cancer without having taken hormones. Most women take hormones and do not get either cancer.
    3) Fertility is just a function of our body. Doesn’t work? Let’s fix it! If you want to stick to nature, do it fully. Next time you have problems with your heart, or an infection, don’t go to the doctor. Wait until nature does its job. You’ll probably end up dead, but it’s all natural.

    Lord, have MERCY, really. Let us have babies the way we want and free us from those evil priests and pastors who, just a tiny little bit later, will rape them in their parishes.
