Understanding Infertility Treatment And Pregnancy

Jul 18, 2008
Once you have received infertility treatment, you will have to wait at least two weeks before you can have a pregnancy test at the clinic but if you are impatient, home pregnancy tests are fairly accurate and readily available. It is important to remember though that if the test is carried out too soon after the treatment, the test might show a false positive.

If you are pregnant, you may start to notice other clues such as missing your period, feeling or being sick, sore breasts, wanting to go to the toilet more often, tiredness, sensitivity to strong tastes and smells, as well as mood swings.

More often than not, the fertility clinic will stay in touch when you become pregnant in the first few weeks of pregnancy to carry out ultrasound scans to check the development of your baby.

Some people take a little while to acclimatize to the fact that they are going to have a child after successful fertility treatment so don't worry if initially, you are not as excited about as you thought you would be. This is quite normal but the important thing is to accept your feelings whatever they are, and to remember that most mums-to-be go through a mix of emotions on discovering they are pregnant whether they have been through fertility treatment or not.

For some women, it may be necessary to have additional scans at the hospital. These include previous miscarriages or stillbirths, if expecting twins, triplets or more and your general health. Another important factor could be the pregnant mothers age as the older you get the more likely complications can occur.

It is not possible to say that there will not be any problems experienced in a pregnancy, whether it was assisted or not because they all carry some risk but most of the time these are only minor. You may find it hard, but try to relax and enjoy your pregnancy if you possibly can.

It has also become more commonplace for single women without a partner to use sperm donation as a method to become pregnant. Unfortunately, there are couples that are unable to conceive naturally and sperm donation has helped them to enjoy the pleasures of parenting.

Unfortunately the number of miscarriages after using In Vitro Fertilization is slightly higher than those after normal conception. There are two main reasons for this, the first being that women that have an infertility treatment have a pregnancy test quite early in the pregnancy.

However, pregnant women need to plan their holidays and air travel with some extra care. First off, a trip to the doctor will be necessary to make sure there aren't any reasons why you can't travel on a plane. These medical reasons could include an increase in blood pressure or any blood loss but if swelling has been apparent throughout the pregnancy then he will usually advise against flying.
