With most cases, in vitro fertilization is used to treat mild sperm abnormalities in males and fallopian tube or ovulation abnormalities in women.
The process begins with the selection of a treatment plan, by the physician, that addresses the unique fertility issues of each couple. The treatment plan is then reviewed, one-on-one, with the IVF Nurse Coordinator insuring that all of the couples’ questions and concerns are addressed. Injection training and further education is also offered on an individual basis to allow for a more personalized experience.
Both the male and female partner will be required to come to the office several times for tests and procedures during the treatment cycle.
Many different medications are taken during a treatment cycle to assist or enhance the body’s normal reproductive process. We will establish a schedule to show you which drugs to take and when to take them. You will also learn how to administer these medications yourself.
