    Question Can birth control pills really cause infertility?

    I've read it many times in magazines, newspaper, online articles, and blogs that taking birth control pills excessively can cause infertility in women. But I'm pretty sure that I never took it that much in my past. I've been married to my husband for almost 3 years. When I married him, I was 24. Now I'm 27 and he's 31. After 6 months of our marriage, we had an unsafe sex for the very first time. Frankly speaking, I was not mentally prepared at that time for pregnancy. I was little worried about that, my husband asked me to take a contraceptive pill. I started taking that regularly, I continued with it for the next year.

    I turned on 27 in January this year. We decided to have our very first baby. We tried to conceive, but we were failed. We tried it again, and we were failed again. So I can say that since this February, we have been TTC. Whenever we try, we fail every time. So after many failures, we decided to visit our doctor. We went to him, told almost every single thing. He said that he wants to run some tests. He was actually suspecting some kind of infertility in any one of us. The report came and said that my ovary is not producing enough eggs to get pregnant. Though he said that I'm not completely infertile, I'm somewhere near it.

    I'm feeling very sad, even my husband is not happy with all this. Are those contraceptive pills really behind my infertility?

    Question

    Yes, if a woman takes contraceptive pills excessively, this can cause infertility. But that's not the only reason behind women's infertility. There are many reasons, and it's just one of them. Anyway, your infertility is the matter of concern here, not its main reason.

    You're just 27, but you don't have enough eggs. Some medications are prescribed to women to increase their eggs quality and quantity. Does your doctor/gynecologist recommend you to follow any such medication?

    Yeah, she has alreay prescribed me a medication to increase my eggs quantity and quality. But she's not 100% sure whether such medication can really help me or not. I just want few good eggs, so I'm just following that prescription with a hope.


    At the same time, she's recommending us to take help of an egg donor. The woman can donate her eggs, and then I can get pregnant. I'm not sure whether the medication (prescribed by her) can really help me improve my eggs quality and quantity. Is it true that any such medication can really help women? Or am I just wasting my time? Please share your thoughts.

    Yes, your doctor is absolutely right. You definitely need an egg donor here. If a woman doesn’t have enough eggs, she may not get pregnant. Eggs should be good in quality and many in numbers. For how long you’ve been taking the medication prescribed by the doctor? If it has been 2-3 months but still no change you’re noticing, this means there’s no way you can produce more good eggs now. If you use donor's eggs, you can easily get pregnant. There's no harm in trying this procedure or whatever it is.

    It has been three months since I started taking this medication. But still I’m not getting postive results. It was FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) which was given through injection. But it failed to stimulate my ovaries to produce more follicles. As a result, eggs were not produced. My doctor says I should consider trying IVF with donor eggs. We’ve visted a few fertility clinics. According to the fertility experts, medication costs can be as low as $1500 for an IVF treatment, but average about $3000 and can be as high as $5000. They also said that IVF treatment may fail sometimes. Is it true?

    Yes, it's true. IVF is just a medical procedure, so it may fail sometimes. By the way, the success rate of IVF treatment depends upon numerous factors, such as age, previous pregnancy, type of fertility problem, using donor eggs, lifestyle factors, laboratory quality, etc. But the most important factor is the fertility clinic. Make sure you choose the best IVF clinic so that you can achieve positive results. If you think you can't afford it in your country, you should consider going abroad.

    Thanks friend for sharing that URL here.

    We’ve visited the website and read the complete information there. Also, we’ve read the reviews about the clinic. We contacted the clinic through email message. Within two hours, I received an email message from the concerned department. We had a long conversation with the senior doctor. They want us to pay them a visit. We’ve also talked to our doctor regarding this. She says there’s no harm in visiting the clinic.
