When Fertility Treatments Fail

It’s not something that we usually want to think about, but what happens when fertility treatments fail?

In fact, more than 40 percent of fertility treatments end up not working. Today we are going to cover how to move on and hopefully heal if your treatments don’t prove effective.

Physical conditions

Depending on the complexity and severity of your condition, fertility treatments might not be effective in your particular case. Some fertility issues, such as physical conditions, are not always able to be fixed with fertility drugs or fertility treatments. Hormonal conditions or sperm conditions, for example, are more easily treated with traditional fertility treatments.

Your age

Bottom line, your age affects your fertility more than anything else. Women over forty often have an extremely hard time conceiving. Around fifty percent of women over forty will have difficulties conceiving. Sometimes, if you are over age forty, even the most complex and expensive fertility treatments will not make a difference.

Here is what you can do when fertility treatments do not work for you.

Let your emotions out

The most important thing to do when your treatments have failed is to let your emotions out. It can be very detrimental to hold your feelings in. Talk with your partner, family and friends about how you are feeling. It can also be extremely helpful to seek help from a professional therapist or counselor to help you work through your feelings.

Just take a break

Sometimes no matter how much you try, your treatment method of choice just might not be working. Take a break, reset your mindset, and recharge your batteries. When you are ready, you can give it another go and try a different avenue or a different course of action. Sometimes all it takes is a new game plan to jumpstart your body into doing what you want it to do.

Explore other options

If it has been determined that treatments are not going to work for your particular case, and you are not ready to give up the idea of having a child, it might be time to start considering other options. There are a many options out there for becoming a parent without physically giving birth. Adoption, becoming a foster parent, or surrogacy might be options for you to consider.

Keep your head up

It is important to remember that sometimes, things just don’t work out. It is no reflection of you as a person, and has nothing to do with how much you wanted a baby, or how good or bad of a parent you would be. It is very important not to hold yourself or your partner personally responsible for treatments that fail. Sometimes nature is just not on our side, and there is nothing we can do to change that.
