People run towards IVF treatment when they are unable to conceive, but the question arises that do you really need IVF treatment?
IVF is a fertility treatment method involved in artificial reproductive treatment. Like IVF, there are many other fertility treatment methods that we can use as an alternative to IVF.
Generally, not every couple with a fertility disorder needs IVF. Some couples are able to conceive successfully without IVF treatment, although for many it is the last option of conception.
In this article, we will know what are the other IVF treatment options and when do you really need it?

Many times a woman is not able to conceive because the hormones necessary for pregnancy in her body are unbalanced. If after diagnosing infertility, the doctor thinks that hormonal medications, injections, etc. can help the woman conceive, he or she will give you some special hormonal medicines.
In some women’s body, there is a lack of nutrients necessary for conception, in such a situation, the doctor will recommend some special supplements.
Ovulation induction may be helpful for women who do not ovulate regularly or at all (eg, women with PCOS). Ovulation induction is a type of hormonal therapy used to release eggs from the ovaries and activate ovulation.
In the case of male infertility, sometimes men may also need hormonal therapy.
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
Intrauterine insemination proves to be an effective treatment if the woman’s ovulation time is correct. In most cases, fertility specialists recommend this treatment method when there is a cyst in an ovary or if the quality of the man’s semen is low.
