Assisted Reproduction

IVF, IUI, Egg Freezing and More

As treatments for infertility have advanced, so has our ability to help grow families through assisted reproductive technologies. For some, the process begins with identifying what may be preventing a healthy pregnancy and then treating an underlying cause. For others, it may begin with choosing a family building option that is the best fit like third-party reproduction, fertility preservation and more.

No matter your journey, we are committed to helping guide you through it each step of the way.

Our Assisted Reproduction treatment options are:

Embryo Creation & Testing
Embryo Transfer, Pregnancy & Delivery
Ovulation Induction
Surrogate Match, Contracts & Approvals
Research & Planning

Embryo Creation & Testing

The eggs are then transferred to our laboratory for the next step of fertilization. A semen sample is specially prepared and “washed,” then mixed with the eggs. The eggs and sperm are carefully monitored for the next 18 – 24 hours to ensure that fertilization occurs. Several of the best resulting embryos are then chosen for transfer into the female partner’s uterus and she will be given additional medications to prepare the uterus for implantation.

Embryo Transfer, Pregnancy & Delivery

The last step of the IVF process is transferring the embryo(s) into the uterus, which is also done in our office. The female partner will be monitored closely to maximize the opportunity for a successful implantation and a successful pregnancy. At this time, a couple can choose to cryopreserve other normally developing embryos for future transfers.

Ovulation Induction

Ovulation induction is a treatment that uses medication to help stimulate ovulation or increase the number of eggs released by the ovaries in one cycle. It can be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments such as IVF or IUI.
