In addition to consultation and fertility treatment for women and men, the assisted reproductive services offered at the practices include:
Intrauterine insemination (artificial insemination) and in vitro fertilization (IVF) can help treat many female infertility problems, including fibroids and endometriosis. Learn more about our fertility treatment options for women.
The cause of infertility can be tested through special imaging, blood tests, hormone levels, and other procedures. Special imaging tests can be performed through a hysterosalpingogram (HSG) or sonohysterogram to view the uterine cavity.
A man’s fertility is determined by sperm quality, production, and movement. Servy Institute of Reproductive Endocrinology (S.I.R.E.) performs semen analysis, postcoital test, and prolactin hormone test are used to evaluate the sperm.
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) can be used to inject a single sperm into an egg to enable fertilization if a man’s sperm cannot penetrate the outer layer of the egg due to problems with the sperm.
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) combines a man’s sperm with a woman’s egg in a laboratory dish, and the resulting embryo (fertilized egg) is implanted in the woman’s uterus. IVF is an effective way to overcome multiple infertility issues to achieve pregnancy. It is one of the more popular and most recommended infertility treatments because of its high success rates.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual couples have essentially the same choices in Assisted Reproductive Technologies as any other couples at Servy Institute of Reproductive Endocrinology (S.I.R.E.). Our reproductive specialists provide IUI and IVF treatment options using sperm donation, egg donation and gestational surrogates to support all couples.
In order to achieve pregnancy, egg fertilization must occur, which depends on the sperm being properly shaped, possessing good health, and having the ability to rapidly move toward the egg. About one-half of infertile men have treatable causes.
