Reproductive Endocrine Assoc. New Fertility Treatments

After all testing is completed, a treatment plan is started. Some couples have specific hormonal or anatomical problems which need to be treated in order to become pregnant. In all cases, the treatment plan is individualized and tailored to the specific needs of the couple.

Many couples proceed to treatment with an ovulation-enhancing drug. They may choose one of the following methods we offer, depending on their needs:

Mother and Son

  1. Treatment with clomiphene citrate (fertility pill)
  2. Treatment with hormone injections (usually Pergonal, Humegon, Fertinex, or Metrodin)
  3. The Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART), including In Vitro Fertilization (IVF, or "test tube baby") and related treatments known as GIFT and ZIFT.
  4. IVF with micromanipulation of sperm and eggs. These treatments include ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) for severe male factor infertility and assisted hatching of embryos in some selected couples.

Advanced Fertility Institute offers the full range of infertility treatment available in clinical practice. Treatments with clomiphene or with hormone injections work best when combined with intrauterine inseminations. This involves the placement of washed sperm directly into the uterus at the time of ovulation. We find that these treatments often require a 3 to 6 month trial to achieve pregnancy.
