It really is amazing what doctor’s can do to help couples conceive. They can manipulate a woman’s body to produce hormones her body does not make itself. They can give a woman injections that will allow her body to have more than one follicle mature for ovulation, therefore increasing the chance of pregnancy. Doctor’s can even take one sperm and inject it into one egg in a procedure called ICSI. But there is one thing no doctor anywhere can do.
Make conception happen. No fertility doctor anywhere in the world has a 100% conception guarantee for the fertility treatments performed in their clinic.
Yes, doctors can time everything right and get a woman ready to ovulate and then place millions of sperm in her uterus to hopefully meet the egg (IUI). Doctors can even bring sperm and egg together outside the woman’s reproductive tract and then transfer 3 to 5 day old embryos into the woman’s uterus (IVF).
If you stop and think about it long enough, it really is amazing what doctors can do.
But when it comes to the actual formation of life, the fusing of egg and sperm, only God can do that because He is the creator of life. Doctors cannot force conception.
It brings much peace to know that is in the very capable hands of my Heavenly Father. Please pray with me today that God will bring egg and sperm together today and create Baby.
