Deciding to start or build your family is a life-changing decision. Maybe you recently decided to try to become pregnant, or perhaps it's something you've been contemplating for a while. But once the decision is made, there's a whole new set of unknowns, including whether the journey will be easy or difficult.
You may already have a lot of questions: How can you increase your chances of becoming pregnant? What health and lifestyle changes should you make to have a healthy pregnancy? And if you're struggling to become pregnant, what medical treatments are available? Where can you get emotional support if you can't get pregnant or if you've had a miscarriage? And when is enough?
The fertility experts at Mayo Clinic want to offer you the answers to these questions and more. Mayo Clinic Guide to Fertility and Conception will guide you through the process of trying for — and achieving — a successful pregnancy.
From lifestyle, dietary recommendations and understanding your ovulatory cycle to medications and procedures that can improve fertility, this book is a comprehensive source of answers from Mayo Clinic experts you can rely on.
To help you find what you're looking for, the book is divided into five sections.
Part 1: Getting Ready for Pregnancy
From exercise and eating right to medications and chronic illness, this section discusses daily habits and medical conditions that may affect your ability to become pregnant.
Part 2: How to Get Pregnant
Understand the intricacies of getting pregnant. Learn how to determine when you're ovulating, when is the best time for sexual intercourse, and steps you can take to increase your chances of a successful outcome. You'll also read about early signs of pregnancy and warnings of a possible problem.
Part 3: Common Fertility Problems
Sometimes infertility is the result of a specific health disorder. This section addresses both common and unusual problems that can affect female and male fertility. There's also a discussion of age and pregnancy. With more women waiting longer to have their first child, understanding how age affects female fertility is important.
Part 4: When You Need Some Help
Here you'll learn about the latest in medical treatments to help you get pregnant. You'll find information on medications to improve fertility, as well as procedures such as intrauterine insemination. There's a detailed discussion of in vitro fertilization and other assisted reproductive technologies.
Part 5: Special Considerations
The last section of the book addresses unique situations — the options available and factors to consider. It also tackles the tough issue of moving forward when pregnancy is unobtainable.
You will also hear throughout the book from couples and individuals who have struggled to have a family. For a variety of reasons — health conditions, unexplained infertility or life circumstances — getting pregnant or deciding to have a family was difficult for them. These personal stories are to let you know that you're not alone in your journey, and to give you hope that with time and patience, pregnancy is often possible.
