Not being able to conceive is always synonymous with infertility?

15% of the population of childbearing age may have trouble conceiving a child. A possible case of sterility must be studied individually. The fact that a couple can not conceive in a given time is not always, much less synonymous with sterility. We should not discourage anyone with words so rotund. Always and never they are not easy to pronounce in medicine. The couple that goes to the consultation has to be carefully watched corazoncito. And yes that care must always have it.



How to study and address such a common problem

Any case of possible infertility should be studied individually and sincere. To do this, perform the clinical history (which is to ask the couple for all, environmental, medical history etc.), make a diagnosis after the relevant tests and give them simple, complete and understandable information about their case, so as the most appropriate treatment for them.These cases should be treated as objectively as possible, being able to see that the couple understands what is being explained. Informing of treatments that can help, and success rates of these. The couple should be treated as the most important part of the team, with tact and scientific rigor. Offering the forefront of research and clinical application in fertility treatments.


Factors that may influence the impossibility of conceiving

All emotional, biological, psychological, environmental and others who surround the couple aspects affect these treatments. They are treatments with an intense emotional charge, which generate a lot of stress. It is therefore very important that the couple find comfort with expert medical team in Gynecology and Obstetrics , and in Human Reproduction.


Assisted Reproduction: Choosing the right treatment

Should be applied less aggressive treatment and higher success rate. For this, the workup is essential. The orientation must be correct, and the couple must understand what is being explained and how the treatment is being proposed.Depending on this insemination, IVF, ICSI, vitrification of gametes or embryos, preimplantation genetic study, among other techniques are proposed.


Why are couples who manage to conceive after leaving fertility treatments?

In medicine we do not know everything, far from it. We begin to live reproductive medicine for many years now and although success rates have improved dramatically, and Spain is one of the countries with more experience and better results in this medical discipline, has a long way to go.It is true that many couples gestate spontaneously after several cycles of treatment failure. So there is no need to remove the couple hope. In 30% of cases of infertility we do not know the cause of it. We must not forget that we are human beings, and medical. This leads us to cure sometimes, many times and always improve comfort.
