2 Symptoms of Infertility The main sign of infertility is after a year of trying to conceive unsuccessfully.If the woman is over age 35 and hasn't conceived after trying for six months or has an irregular menstrual cycle, it's best to see a doctor as soon as possible.The man should be evaluated, too. Male infertility is just as common as female infertility.
3 Male InfertilityIn about 40% of infertile couples, the cause is traced to the man. Common problems include:Low sperm countPoor sperm motilityMalformed spermBlocked sperm ducts

5 Female InfertilityIn another 40% of cases, the woman is diagnosed with a problem, such as:Irregular ovulation (release of eggs)Blocked fallopian tubesAbnormalities in the cervix or uterusIn about 20% of infertile couples, no cause can be found.
6 Acupuncture for Infertility? Every week, some couples are trying Dr. Zhao TCM to address infertility.Research suggests acupuncture may improve sperm quality, improve blood flow to the uterus, normalize ovulation, and boost IVF success rates.
7 Natural Ways to Boost Fertility Dr. Zhao’s Yin-Yang, Blood capsules can improve lining of uterus, normalize ovulation and balance hormone.Quit smoking and alcohol. Smoking reduces fertility and has a documented impact on pregnancy rates. In one study, men who stopped smoking saw their sperm counts climb 800%.
8 Irregular OvulationIrregular ovulation accounts for about a third of all cases of infertility.To find out when you're ovulating (and determine the best time for sex), you can use over-the-counter ovulation tests. These detect a hormonal surge that occurs 12 to 36 hours before the ovary releases an egg. If the tests never yield a positive result, consult your doctor.
9 Fertility DrugsIf your doctor determines you're not ovulating normally, fertility drugs can help. The most common choice is clomiphene citrate, better known by the brand names Clomid and Serophene.About half of women who take clomiphene will get pregnant, usually within three cycles.By causing the release of more than one egg at a time, Clomid increases the chances of multiple births.
10 Injectable HormonesIf you don't get pregnant after taking clomiphene for six months, your doctor may recommend injections of fertility hormones.Of those who ovulate, about half become pregnant. Like clomiphene, injectable hormones increase the chances of becoming pregnant with multiples.
11 Surgery for Blocked Fallopian Tubes Some women have trouble getting pregnant because scar tissue prevents eggs from traveling down the fallopian tubes.This scarring can be caused by endometriosis, the overgrowth of tissue that lines the uterus, a history of pelvic infections, or previous surgeries.Acupuncture and herbs may unblocked the fallopian to get pregnant for some women.
12 Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) In this procedure, the sperm is placed directly into the woman's uterus while she is ovulating. This reduces the distance the sperm must swim to reach the egg. IUI is often used in combination with drugs that stimulate ovulation.Dr. Zhao TCM can improve lining of uterus to increase pregnancy rates.
13 IUI With Donor SpermIf the man has few healthy sperm, IUI can be done using sperm from a donor.IUI with donor sperm has a very high success rate in fertile women with Dr. Zhao TCM help.The pregnancy rates are over 80%.
14 In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) IVF offers the egg and sperm combining in a lab.The growing embryos are then placed inside the uterus.With Dr. Zhao TCM help, your uterus lining is already thick enough and hormone balance ready.
15 IVF With ICSIWhen a man's sperm count is extremely low or the sperm don't move well, they may not be able to fertilize an egg without help.Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is inserting a single sperm directly into an egg.The resulting embryos are then transferred to the uterus through the normal IVF procedure.With Dr. Zhao TCM help, your uterus lining is already thick enough and hormone balance ready.
16 IVF With Donor EggsWomen who are over 40, have poor egg quality, or have not had success with previous IVF cycles may consider IVF with donor eggs. This involves combining the husband's sperm with another woman's eggs. If the procedure is successful, the wife becomes pregnant with a baby who is biologically related to her husband but not herself.With Dr. Zhao TCM help, your uterus lining is already thick enough and hormone balance ready.
