Posted by on July 12, 2019 in Conscious Living with 0 Comments

In many societies, bearing children especially for married couples is a highly regarded achievement. Even though this view and perspective are rapidly changing as couples chose to have leaner families, childbearing is still adored.

Getting pregnant the natural way may seem easy. For most couples it’s not and falling at it comes with a share of its own worries, sometimes even broken relationships. Some couples after months or even years of trying still gain no results. This may be because of some medical conditions on either or both partners. If you find yourself in such a situation, do not dismay and drown yourself in your worries.

There are other alternatives available thanks to the advancement in technology. They range from artificial insemination, In vitro fertilization, adoption, surrogacy just to mention but a few. Nonetheless, before picking on any of them, it is important that you engage with the right mindset, attitude, and approach in order to gain the best results. In this article, we look at some of the methods that couples use as an alternative way to get pregnant.

Artificial Insemination

When the natural way of conceiving hits the wall, as a couple with a desire to have and hold babies. You think of other viable options to remedy the situation. Most couples will opt for ways that will keep the process naturally to avoid conflicting with their moral beliefs.

Artificial insemination maybe one option on the table and you possibly don’t know how to go about it. The process involves medically injecting sperms directly into the fallopian tubes, the womb or the cervix.

Men with a low sperm count or weak sperm unable to swim to the uterus can explore this product. Women suffering from endometriosis and unreceptive cervical mucus can also use this method.

In Vitro Fertilization

In vitro fertilization has helped a dozen couples struggling with infertility issues. IVF provides solutions to such couples. It involves a series of processes to help in the conception of a baby. They fertilize mature eggs in the laboratory and later implanted into the womb. The process involves the women taking some medicine to help several of their eggs to mature and ready for fertilization. Due to its complexity couples may seek counseling before embarking on the process.

Use of Frozen Embryos

You may have visited your doctor and got the news that your conceiving may be futile soon on some medical grounds. The fear of not having a baby may crop in. Getting such information earlier is a positive step in trying to remedy the situation. Freezing your embryos and using them when you’re ready may be a good option. Taking your partner or donors sperm and your egg and medically fertilizing them then freezing for the future,

Go For a Surrogate

Although getting another woman to carry your baby doesn’t make you pregnant, it acts as a relief knowing that at least you could have a child genetically related to you. You may have a problem within your uterus and struggling to bring a baby to term, surrogacy may be a virtuous alternative. When choosing to use a surrogate, couples may get their sperms and eggs fertilized in the lad through IVF. After fertilization, they will place the eggs in a surrogate instead of the mother who will nurse the pregnancy to term.

Consulting reputable companies that deal with surrogacy may help you deal with any issue that may arise during and after the process.

Look for a Donor

You may have tried the above methods and stilled failed at it. Your problem is lying with the egg or the sperm. This does not mean you cannot have a child possibly related to you, In such a case enlisting the help of a donor. Any of the above processes can still work with donated sperm or egg. However, the child may not have a link to you genetically to both partners; it can give the woman a chance to bring the baby to term. The exercise gives the couple an opportunity to witness their child grow as they will be they are every stage of the process.

Exploring Adoption as an Option

You may have tried all the options, either natural or artificial but still did not conceive. It can be emotionally draining, but there is still hope.

Adoption can be an option of having a baby; although you may not share a genetic relationship with the child, it is still your own.

We have different ways of adoption. Choose the one that works for you as a couple to avoid future conflicts with the biological parents. You can have a closed adoption: no contacts between the biological parents and the child or for open adoption: here birth parents can still maintain partial contact with their child.

Find out more about your adopted child for future preparedness, learn about their family history. In some instances, you can do the adoption while the mother is still pregnant. Here, you will carry the child and cares for it while still a baby. This will seal the bond between you and the child.


The all the above procedures may not work for you, choose the most appropriate ones in consultation with your doctor. Accepting your situation and finding the situation to it is the key to having an amazing and fulfilling marriage. Work out with your partner in finding the most viable procedure for you. No matter the outcome never lose hope in trying again and exploring other options.
