Our philosophy is to provide you with a treatment plan tailored to your situation. We always attempt to restore your natural fertility first and aim to avoid complex fertility treatments. We like to perform a monitoring cycle and check if there is a hormonal imbalance that can be easily fixed. Especially in cases of irregular periods, simple treatments can create miracles. We also typically evaluate your partner with a semen analysis and hormonal workup.
The most basic form of treatment, which assists patients’ timing of intercourse around their most fertility days of the month. Find out more about this important element of conception. We determine your ovulation with monitoring your ovulation and help you identify your most fertile days. The ultrasound evaluation provides more insight than any other fertility app. We can ensure your follicle ruptures and your egg is released. In rare cases you might be diagnosed with LUF (luteinized unruptred follicles) or luteal phase insufficiency.
IUI increases the number of sperm that can reach the Fallopian tube, subsequently increasing the chance of fertilization. This treatment offers sperm an advantage by giving it a head start. Sperm also bypasses the cervical mucus that in some cases inhibits the sperm progression. Best results are achieved when the IUI is performed exactly at the time of spontaneous ovulation. An artificial ovulation trigger in form of hCG (pregnancy hormone) can further optimize insemination timing.
Aka controlled ovarian hyperstimulation. The process of inducing a woman to release more than one egg in a month. It’s different from ovulation induction, where the goal is to release one egg a month.
A frozen embryo transfer is a type of IVF treatment where a cryopreserved embryo (created during a full IVF cycle) is thawed and transferred to a woman’s uterus. The cryopreserved embryo can be from a woman’s previous conventional IVF cycle or it can be a donor embryo.
This treatment involves identifying an embryo with a strong chance of successful pregnancy, then transferring that single embryo to the uterus. The lab “freezes” any additional healthy embryos for future use.
Aka micro or minimal stimulation IVF. Similar to conventional IVF in the creation of the embryo happens outside of the body during treatment. What’s different is how much medication is used to stimulate the ovaries to produce eggs. While typical IVF aims to produce a higher number of eggs for retrieval, mini-IVF uses weaker medications or lower doses of medications to produce only a few eggs. It may also be done without any ovarian stimulating drugs and then it becomes natural IVF.
Natural cycle IVF is a treatment similar to traditional, or stimulated, IVF, but without the use of medications to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs. It may appeal to those who dislike medications
This is a process where embryos are selected by their sex chromosomes during an IVF cycle in order to produce a male or female offspring, according to the wishes of the parents. This may be considered when possible medical issues arise that are linked to x chromosome disorders
This test allows patients who are carriers or who are affected by genetic diseases to select unaffected embryos for transfer before becoming pregnant.
Aka carrier screening - this test is a way for a paent to get a glimpse at their own genetic makeup and see what they may pass on to future children. A future parent may determine their risk of having a child with a genetic disorder. Being a carrier means you don't present with any symptoms but that you have the gene and could potentially pass it along to your offspring.
