Almost everyone, while growing up, fantasizes about having a family. People want to get married and give birth – if possible, without surgery – in the first three years of their marriage.

Check Collected.Reviews to know the other things that unmarried people dream about.

While this dream might sound cute, it is a hard fact that not everyone will be privileged to give birth traditionally or surgically. People have gone to different lengths to make themselves fertile, some even had to buy supplements online but all the efforts proved futile.

As a couple unable to make children, here are 5 ways in which you can have a child.

1.  Fertility Drugs:

If you visit a fertility expert, one of the first things that the expert will recommend for you is fertility drugs. First, the expert will examine both couples to know which of them could be having an issue. After this, if it is the man, drugs to improve the quality and production of the sperm will be given. If it is the lady woman that is found to have an infertility issue, drugs that will help to catalyze ovulation will be given.

2.  Medical Intervention:

If the fertility drugs did not yield any result and the couple cannot still successfully conceive a child. Some medical procedures are recommended. The medical procedures include Invitro Fertilization (IVF) where sperm and egg cells are extracted from both man and woman and combined, when the sperm fertilizes with the egg, the combination is then inserted back in the woman’s womb. Other procedures include Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), Zygote Intrafallopian Transfer (ZIFT), Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer (GIFT), etc. All of these processes are referred to as Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART).

3.  Donation:

This is the donation of sperm or egg cells when either of the couples does not have fertile cells. If the man has no fertile cell, then the couple will decide on someone who can donate his egg cells and it will be put in the woman and vice versa. This method is used mainly for same-sex couples. The couples find the opposite sex who is willing to donate sperm or egg cells. If neither of the couples has a fertile egg or sperm cell, then they can also seek an embryo donation.

4.  Surrogacy:

Surrogacy is a condition where a parent cannot carry a child for certain reasons. It could be because of medical reasons or because they are a gay couple or other reasons. This parent will pay a third party to help them carry their child for the period of pregnancy. When surrogacy started, only people related to either of the parents were allowed to carry the child, however, things have changed now and the parent can choose anyone to help them carry the child.

5.  Adoption:

This happens when a parent tries to get a child that is not theirs. There are different ways to go about this; a parent who cannot afford to raise a child can put the child up for adoption and the couple seeking a child will sign an agreement with the parent and take ownership of the child. In this type of adoption, the biological parent is allowed to have a relationship with the child but in the other types of adoption, the parent’s right to connect with the child is revoked.

Having children is a thing of joy. Some people love to see children around them and if you are that person, do not let anything hold you back from getting kids into your home.
