Fertility Treatments & Services

We provide a range of fertility treatments for any couple/individual who receives a diagnosis of infertility and wants to build a family through assisted reproduction or would like to preserve their fertility for the future. This includes heterosexual couples, single individuals and LGBTQIA couples and individuals.

Many factors affect the type and course of fertility treatment recommended, including:

  • Age
  • Diagnosis
  • Long-term family building goals (i.e. how many children?)
  • Personal preferences
  • Duration of infertility
  • Unique reproductive needs

Developing a treatment plan

The doctors at Fertility Specialists Medical Group, who are board-certified in reproductive endocrinology and infertility (REI), can help individuals and couples understand the treatment options available.

We look at all factors to find the best fitting fertility treatment for each patient and collaborate with our patients to determine the fertility treatment plan that suits them best.

Defining Success

IVF compared to other infertility treatments

According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), in vitro fertilization (IVF) accounts for less than 3% of infertility services.

This shows that there are many other options available for those with infertility or reproductive needs, from do-it-yourself lifestyle changes we can recommend to less invasive treatment options.

IVF is the most effective assisted reproductive technology for many patients, but it can also be more expensive and time-consuming. We help our patients evaluate whether IVF is the best option or if other fertility treatments might be the better course given the cost, time commitment and the likelihood of success.

FSMG is not driven by IVF success rates. Our definition of success is following the best fertility treatment course to give each individual or couple the best opportunity to achieve their family-building goals in a manner in which they are comfortable and confident.

Fertility Testing & Diagnosis

Fertility testing is used to determine the cause or causes of infertility in men and women, guiding physicians to a diagnosis and treatment plan.

Ovulation Induction With Fertility Drugs

Ovulation induction stimulates the ovaries to produce and release mature eggs for fertilization and is typically used with IVF or in cases of anovulation.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) Fertility Treatment

The fertility treatment intrauterine insemination (IUI) can increase the chances of pregnancy by placing a high concentration of sperm into the uterus.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

IVF (in vitro fertilization) is an infertility treatment that combines sperm and egg(s) to achieve fertilization outside of the body in our laboratory.

Minimally Invasive Surgery Infertility Treatment

Minimally invasive surgery via laparoscopy or hysteroscopy can be used to diagnose and treat infertility issues like uterine fibroids and endometriosis.

Fertility Cryopreservation

Fertility preservation allows individuals to freeze eggs or embryos in order to preserve fertility at a time in reproductive life when eggs are most likely to be chromosomally and metabolically normal. Patients can then use these cryopreserved eggs or embryos at a later time when they are ready to build a family.

Oncofertility is the field of reproductive medicine that works with oncologists (cancer doctors) to provide options for cancer patients who wish to preserve their fertility prior to undergoing treatments that may impact future fertility.

LGBTQIA Family Building

We fully support the LGBTQIA community and provide a variety of reproductive treatments for couples or individuals who often need them to build a family.

Single Parent Family Building at Our Fertility Clinic

Many single men and women choose to become parents without a significant other or partner. These individuals often need the help of a fertility clinic.

Embryo Donation

Embryo donation can be used to help an infertile individual or couple achieve pregnancy using embryos donated by an individual or couple. After IVF, patients sometimes have unused frozen embryos. These can be donated in a non-identifying manner to another infertility patient, or can be donated to further research in a variety of areas of medicine.

You’re unique.
Your fertility plan should be too.
