If you are having fertility issues, your doctor can refer you to a fertility specialist, a doctor who treats infertility. The doctor will need to test both you and your partner to find out what the problem is. Depending on the problem, your doctor might recommend treatment. About 9 in 10 cases of infertility are treated with medication or surgery. Don't delay seeing your doctor, as age also affects the success rates of these treatments. For some couples, adoption or foster care offers a way to share their love with a child and to build a family.
At Lola&Lykke, we know that every couple's journey to parenthood is unique - that's what makes it so special. But when you're facing infertility, it can sometimes feel like you're lost without a map. Don't worry, we're here to help guide you through.
Infertility can seem like a massive hurdle, but there are many paths that can lead to parenthood. It's not just about IVF or adoption, there are so many other routes you can take. You might have heard about treatments like Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), or Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI). Maybe you're considering fertility medications like Clomiphene or Letrozole. For others, surrogacy or egg, sperm, or embryo donation could be the perfect fit.
But it's not all about medical treatments. You might be surprised to know how much lifestyle changes, like acupuncture, diet adjustments, or stress management, can enhance fertility.
We understand, it's a lot to take in. And this journey isn't just about physical treatments - it's about emotional well-being too. Feeling connected and understood can be a real lifeline when you're dealing with infertility. That's why we've created a special “trying to conceive” category on our Lola&Lykke blog. Here, you can connect with others going through the same experiences and find comfort in shared stories and insights. And if you need professional advice, our Health Experts are also here to answer any questions you might have for free.
We get it, the road to becoming a parent might seem winding and bumpy. That's okay. Take all the time you need to explore your options, seek out the advice you need, and decide what's right for you and your partner. You're not alone on this journey, and we're here to support you every step of the way.
