In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a highly effective technique for infertility. In vitro fertilization refers to a procedure in which an egg (or oocyte) is fertilized outside of the body and then transferred into the uterus. IVF can improve your chances of pregnancy.
First, the oocyte is removed from the ovary. Then in the laboratory, that egg is fertilized with sperm, resulting in an embryo. After the embryo has properly developed, it is then transferred into the uterus. Embryos that are not replaced during a fresh cycle can be frozen for future use. This process is called cryopreservation. You can use your own eggs and sperm, or you can eggs and sperm from a partner or donor.
Each IVF treatment plan is individualized and varies from patient to patient. But the general steps through our program will be similar. Our general guidelines will help give you an idea of what the IVF process might be like for you.
Once you decide to move forward with IVF you will meet with our patient care coordinator. They will help you through the screening process to get you ready for IVF.
IVF treatment steps
Once the screening process is completed, you will work with one of our IVF nurse coordinators. Your RN and doctor will work with you to develop an individualized plan of care and a medication routine that meets your needs.
You will have an individualized treatment plan
You will then receive a medication log and a calendar outlining your treatment. It is important to note that we develop your treatment plan individually so that we can create the ideal number and best quality eggs or embryos.
What to expect
Your treatment plan will be developed specifically for you.
Our program offers unique financial options not available at most fertility programs.
