Trying to bring that tiny bundle of joy into your life, but no luck getting pregnant? You are not alone; one of every six couples in the United States who is actively trying to get pregnant is also challenged by infertility. We can offer the help of these links shared by the specialists at Fertility Treatment Center (FTC), one of the nation’s leading sources on fertility treatments.

Today’s 10 Links a Day: Infertility Options and Info
  1. On its Evaluation & Diagnosis page, Fertility Treatment Center explains: What are these conditions, and what do they have to do with my not being able to get pregnant? (And what are some treatment options?)

  9. You’ve heard of Embryo transfer. Find out more about this wonder of advanced reproductive technology on Wikipedia. Embryo transfer can also be combined with the use of donor eggs, through programs such as FTC’s PreciousWonders.

  10. It started with the science, but we’re more enlightened now, too. Curious to see how far we’ve come? Time magazine reprinted its news article on the world’s first test-tube baby, published July 31, 1978, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the fertility treatment milestone on July 31, 2008.
