Just because it is all online these days does not mean that it will still be easy. Because if you are not practiced and skilled at online reading, you are going to be missing out a lot on vital information. Not everyone has the ability to read closely, or as they say, read between the lines. To this end, there is compensation for being lacking. Food for thought can still be provided to you through online video links, some which are live and most which will be recorded for your knowledge benefit. Specialized medical treatment centers are not always within reach of those that need it the most. And this is where online resources, all of them, truly come into their own.
If you find yourself struggling to fall pregnant at this point in time, you can run through your own fertility treatment checklist. But not so fast. What do you still need to do? You still need to learn what is required of you to find out why you have not been able to conceive after a few years of trying. You need to be online with specialized fertility treatment centers. There you can establish immediate contact with a qualified counselor who will conduct an interview with you. This can be in writing or via a video linkup. Under the circumstances, being interviewed via Skype, for instance, would be ideal.
Your counselor will then be able to get a true sense of what you have been going through. She is better able to make an accurate diagnosis. Her line of questioning is specific, and if you have not understood her, she can explain to you what she needs to know from you. Thereafter, she can put together a proposal of what you can do in your own time to investigate why you have been struggling of late, if you pardon the expression. She will provide you with your checklist in writing and, of course, you are always able to link up with her again whenever necessary.
In the event that diagnoses have determined that you are lacking and there are things you will need to do, these are some of the things you can expect to be taking. You may be required to take fertility-specific vitamins. This entails at least 400 mcg of folic acid a day. This is also used to prevent neurological problems occurring in the foetus. You may also be required to take vitamin D. To this end, you can expect to take no more than 10 mcg per day. And on the side of your male partner, he too, could be required to play a vital part.
Both you and he could be required to increase your uptake of vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium and zinc. These ingredients are specifically designed for the man to improve the quality of his sperm. The checklist is a lot wider than what we have just mentioned here, so do expect more from your consultant.
