Every year in the United States their are 4 million babies born. However, there are an additional 6 million infertile couples in the United States who cannot conceive without medical help, and only 60,000 in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles are performed each year. Fewer than one percent of infertile couples who need treatment receive it.
However, if the cost of IVF treatment were not an impediment, many millions of couples would be undergoing IVF. New programs are now available though most clinics that can now make IVF treatments affordable for most american couples. In the future, at least 30 percent of babies will be born as a result of this technology, rather than as a result of sexual intercourse.
In modern society, many couples delay childbearing until they are in their thirties. Infertility affects 2 percent of couples in their early twenties, 25 percent of couples in their mid-thirties, and more than 40 percent of couples in their late thirties and early forties. Therefore, if most people who need IVF can gain access to it, 25 percent of all couples of childbearing age might eventually be undergoing IVF. Furthermore, 30 percent of those couples are likely to have multiple pregnancies, resulting in two or three children. Therefore, it is probable that as couples continue to put off childbearing, at least 30 percent of babies will be conceived from IVF; rather than from sex.
The first step toward couples fighting Infertility is to schedule an appointment with an Infertility Specialist. The Infertility Specialists will start a Fertility workup, which will include for both partners: Medical history, Physical examination and a blood or urine test. The male partner will have a semen analysis and the female partner will also receive a Postcoital (to check a women's cervical mucus) and a Home test to see when ovulation occurs. All these tests are minimally evasive and can normally be done in one visit to an Infertility clinic.
Now women that have had their tubes tied can visit a IVF Clinic and have options like embryo transfer or tubal ligation reversal. It is always recommended that both the man and woman show up for the Fertility consultation, for sometimes it may be a issue with Male Infertility. Infertility Clinics are now becoming so widely used that people from overseas are now flying in to the U.S. for a fertility consultation.
