Infertility and your situation

Do you have questions about infertility? Do you think you’re infertile? Whatever your situation, your social status, your personal or religious orientation, ovo fertility can help you achieve your parental goal.

 

WHAT IS INFERTILITY ?

It is the inability to conceive after 12 months of unprotected sex or the inability to carry a pregnancy to term.

 

WHEN IS IT ADVISABLE TO CONSULT ?

We advise couples without a known medical or fertility problem to attempt getting pregnant by unprotected sex for a period of at least 12 months prior to a consultation for medical advice about infertility. A woman aged 35 and over should ask for an opinion after 6 months of unsuccessful attempts.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF INFERTILITY ?

The 3 main causes are (1) lack of ovulation, (2) tubal blockage or (3) abnormal sperm. There is often a combination of those three factors.

Advanced maternal age is also a problem. In 10% of cases, no obvious cause will be revealed with our exams. It is known as unexplained infertility. In Canada, 10-15% of couples, accounting for more than 300,000 couples suffer from reduced fertility or infertility.

I AM IN A MALE-FEMALE COUPLE

If you have tried unsuccessfully to conceive for over a year, it is time to call for an appointment with a fertility specialist. You will undergo several tests such as evaluation of your ovarian reserve, semen analysis, tubal patency tests, etc.

Then we will be able to determine the appropriate treatment, which may be simply taking medication, an intra-uterine insemination or in vitro fertilization.

I AM IN A FEMALE-FEMALE COUPLE

In your case, you will need a sperm donor and an intra-uterine insemination or IVF. With ovo cryo, we will provide the necessary tools to ensure your treatment is optimal.

 

 

I AM IN A MALE-MALE COUPLE

During your appointment with one of our specialists, he will advise you of what is required, which will involve finding an egg donor and a surrogate to carry the pregnancy.

I AM A SINGLE WOMAN

If you are ready to have a child, we can give you appropriate information about intra-uterine insemination with donor sperm. To learn more we invite you to visit the Ovo clinic where our specialists can explain the options available to you.

 

 

I AM A SINGLE WOMANOF 43 YEARS AND OVER

We will recommend treatment based on your ovarian reserve.

I WILL HAVE A VASECTOMY

While vasectomy can be reversed, the procedure does not succeed every time. If your personal situation changes, it could be that you want to have a child in the future; ttherefore, consider freezing your sperm before undergoing vasectomy.

For more information, we invite you to visit ovo cryo where one of our specialists can explain the procedure.

 

 

I WILL SOON BE UNDERGOING SURGERY OR HAVE CHEMOTHERAPY

If you need a surgery or a medical treatment that could reduce your fertility or make you infertile, consider freezing your sperm or eggs for the future.

To learn more, we invite you to visit ovo fertility where one of our specialists can explain the steps to be taken.

CAN I GET PREGNANT BY INSEMINATION AFTER A TUBAL LIGATION ?

It is first necessary to perform a tubal reanastomosis. This surgery can be performed in some cases depending on the method of ligation that was used. This procedure is performed in a hospital and is only available in certain hospitals. Once this step is completed, pregnancy may occur naturally or by insemination depending on the results.

If reanastomosis is not possible, IVF treament could be an alternative.

CAN I GET PREGNANT BY INSEMINATION AFTER A VASECTOMY ?

You must first perform a vasovasostomy (reconnection) to try to become fertile. If the intervention is successful, fertilization can occur naturally or by insemination. If the reversal cannot be made, we must proceed by collecting sperm directly from the epididymis or testes by aspiration or biopsy (PESA/MESA/TESE) followed by in vitro fertilization with ICSI.
