Meet Our Doctors
In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is a procedure where Eggs are removed from a woman’s ovaries and inseminated outside the body. Any embryo(s) that result are then placed in the woman’s uterus where they may implant and grow. For more information on our IVF Program
It is an acronym to describe Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection, the injection of a single sperm directly into the cytoplasm of an oocyte.
If you have regular periods and are 30 years of age or less, the general recommendation is to attempt pregnancy naturally for one year before exploring fertility treatment options.
The physician will do a complete assessment including hormonal blood work to determine if your ovaries are still fertile, and whether they would respond to fertility drugs likely leading to pregnancy.
A careful assessment of your partner will be done including blood work and semen analysis to further evaluate the specific abnormality in the sperm (i.e. low sperm count and/or low motility).
If you have undertaken treatment previously, any documents relating to your infertility, i.e. operative reports, semen analysis, blood work, hysterosalpingogram reports, previous IVF cycles. Please include your address and phone numbers (home and work) so we may contact you for a consultative appointment.
