We want to be parents

Pregnancy is not an easy task, and even young and healthy couples may take up to a year to conceive.

When a couple decides to become parents, they often think that achieving a pregnancy is easy and just a matter of months. To avoid frustration, it’s important to clarify that achieving pregnancy is not an easy task. Even young and healthy couples may take up to a year to conceive. It should be noted that for those women under 35 years old, the probability of achieving pregnancy during the fertile period of each month is 25%, a percentage that decreases as the woman’s age increases.

Our specialists recommend planning the pregnancy with medical support and adopting healthy habits to reduce potential complications. Initially, when the decision has been made, it is important for the woman to attend her gynecological checkup and inform her doctor that they are planning to become parents.

The doctor will then perform a general analysis to determine the presence or absence of risk factors and, if necessary, prescribe pharmacological supplements along with advice to increase the chances of achieving conception naturally.

What techniques and treatments should be considered when planning a pregnancy?

It’s important to consider the various assisted reproduction treatments that can be used in case of fertility problems. At WeFIV, we have the latest technology in all our treatments, tests, and techniques to provide quality care for each of our patients and increase the chances of fertilization.

Currently, the main treatments are Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). IUI is a low-complexity treatment that aims to increase the chances of pregnancy by introducing sperm, previously selected in the laboratory, into the woman’s uterine cavity a few minutes before ovulation.

On the other hand, IVF is a high-complexity treatment that involves carrying out the fertilization process outside the woman’s body, that is, in the laboratory.

Depending on the couple’s fertility problem, the medical team may suggest egg donation, resorting to a sperm bank, or both. Egg donation is a treatment in which a woman receives eggs from a donor to conceive, while a sperm bank is used when the fertility problem is related to the male partner’s sperm, requiring donor sperm.
