There are now treatments to help almost everyone overcome infertility.
Our philosophy at Shady Grove Fertility Center has always been to tailor our patients’ treatment to their specific diagnosis and circumstances. We balance the goals of achieving the best possible chance of success with using the simplest and most cost effective approach. For some, treatment may involve more advanced modalities such as in vitro fertilization (IVF). While IVF has the highest per cycle success rate, it is also more complex and expensive than other treatment modalities. Many patients will be able to achieve a pregnancy with less intensive therapies than IVF; in fact, approximately one quarter of the pregnancies conceived by patients at SGFC are achieved with either ovulation induction (OI) or superovulation, coupled with intrauterine insemination (IUI).
A wide variety of treatment options are available to meet your medical needs and may include:
- the use of hormone therapy (medications) to stimulate or support ovulation,
- sperm preparation for intrauterine insemination,
- the latest techniques for minimally invasive reproductive surgery (hysteroscopy and pelviscopy), and
- the Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART's), including In Vitro Fertilization
