If my partner and I had to deal with challenges of infertility, we will take one step at a time. Infertility can be very upsetting and the range of reproductive technologies offered can be confusing. We will think at all the options ahead of us, and will think positively. Once we face an infertility process and we are unable to conceive after several attempts, I believe there are so many questions that arise with a fertility treatment or even adoption. We will definitely make a research about different fertility treatments, after visiting a fertility specialist I believe we will try to conceive with first level infertility treatments such as fertility drugs, lifestyle changes as indicated or artificial insemination, picking the one that better fit our infertility type, considering age also and how long we had infertility issues.
In vitro fertilization would be the last fertility treatment we would try before considering adoption, but we rather prefer to take a moment to think about how this will affect our baby in the long term, how he or she will handle being an adopted child or a child that came to the world through a fertility treatment, and that would be our primary concern when deciding having a baby this way due to infertility reasons.
Fertility treatments involve that question, which includes moral, and social responsibility. Even though some studies find that the quality of life for the kids of families who have used fertility treatment may be superior to that of kids in families who used natural conception, questions will always arise. I believe is significant what we feel at different stages after we consider all the challenges of infertility in order to make the right decision,
