Low Tech Reproductive Treatments

Low Tech Reproductive Treatments Q & A

by Sam Najmabadi, MD

What does low tech fertility treatment mean?

Low tech treatments are procedures or treatments which are minimally invasive and do not involve fertilization outside of the uterus. The treatments actually comprise more than 50% all fertility treatments in the United States help many couples to start or grow their families. The treatments can range from lifestyle counseling to help the potential parents to make their bodies as effective as possible at producing and hosting reproductive cells and embryos to intrauterine insemination (IUI). These less invasive treatments are the starting point for most patients seeking fertility assistance.

What kinds of treatments are available for women?

Female patients will be examined to ensure the uterine health and ovarian function. Some women have polyps or fibroids on the uterus or ovaries which can impede fertility. If diagnosed and treated with medication or minor surgery, fertility may return to optimum levels. Some women may have ovaries which are not producing eggs with every menstrual cycle. When this condition is diagnosed it is most often treated medically with Clomiphene Citrate and aromatase inhibitors to stimulate egg production. The patients menstrual cycle is then monitored and the couple is advised on the best time to have intercourse.

What treatments are available for men?

The male factor or male infertility is usually linked to either a low sperm count or poor sperm mobility. Low sperm count can be treated medically with either hormone treatments or medication to stimulate sperm production. When the sperm is not optimally mobile, the doctor may suggest artificial insemination, also called IUI. The procedure involves taking a semen sample from the potential father and transferring it directly to the potential mother’s reproductive tract at the most likely time for fertilization and implantation to take place. This treatment does not involve any surgical treatments and is considered non-invasive.

What changes can be made to lifestyle to increase fertility?

Being in good health and having the necessary check-ups and screenings regarding reproductive health are essential. It is important for both potential parents to maintain health weights as being overweight can cause issues with the production of reproductive cells. Both partners should avoid smoking and alcohol consumption. Eating a healthy and balanced diet high in monounsaturated fats, vegetables, and high fiber foods can help maintain healthy bodies.  Women can take daily supplements in folic acid to make their bodies better hosts for embryos. It is also important to know the potential mother’s cycle to identify the best days to have intercourse for reproduction. That said, it is important to be intimate regularly.

Amazing service!

Stingray sting. No idea what it was other than the pain, swelling and color were “not cool“ 3 hours afterward !! Went to PMH and received Fantastic Care. People oriented as you would expect, but genuinely so, Dr Alcázar and the Paramedic who saw me were insightful and acted immediately to resolve the pain, confirm no other damage or residual, and prescribe short term medication. A great, friendly and excellent place. Grateful !
