In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) has been the solution that so many couples have been searching for. We specialize in this technique and are proud to be one of the few fertility centers in the area with a dedicated on-site lab director, bringing quality treatment to patients in Phoenix, AZ and the surrounding area.
IVF is a treatment in which an egg and sperm are fertilized outside of a female patient’s body, then transferred to the uterus in hopes that at least one embryo will attach to the uterine wall. IVF can be performed using fresh eggs and sperm, which must first be harvested, or using frozen eggs, sperm, or embryos. Because IVF aids in seven of the ten steps of conception, it is one of our most successful treatment options.
Starting In Vitro Fertilization
During the initial consultation we delve into the IVF process in detail. We review your medical history, lifestyle factors, and previous fertility tests and treatments. This information allows us to understand all factors that could influence your treatment, and to develop a customized treatment plan that offers you the most comfortable and effective experience possible.
The IVF Procedure
We often begin the IVF process with several weeks of fertility medications (either oral or injected) to encourage the production of several eggs, rather than the typical single egg. This is followed by egg retrieval, a minor surgical procedure done on an outpatient basis. The eggs are then fertilized in our lab, using sperm from the partner or pre-selected donor, which mature into embryos. Our lab director selects the healthiest embryo(s) and the fertility physician transfers the embryo(s) to the uterus of the patient where it will implant and grow to a full-term baby.
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is a cutting-edge service that may offer you greater success in achieving pregnancy if you have been dealing with low sperm count, low sperm motility, or have experienced failed IVF cycles. ICSI is an advanced fertilization technique involving the injection of a single sperm into a single egg. This procedure allows our team to select the best possible eggs and sperm for fertilization, increasing the chances of success.
