IVF for infertility at our San Antonio Fertility Center
Are you struggling to conceive? IVF for infertility may be the solution you need. Our San Antonio fertility center has helped hundreds of families overcome infertility to bring home much-wanted babies.
While IVF is a highly effective fertility treatment, it is not always the first treatment option for infertility. In fact, only about 10% of infertility patients require IVF to conceive. Other options may include medications to stimulate ovulation, intrauterine insemination (IUI), or surgery to correct structural issues.
To determine which treatment option is the best choice for you, our experienced reproductive endocrinologist will perform a series of diagnostic tests on both partners to determine the cause of your inability to conceive.
How we use IVF for infertility
IVF is a procedure in which eggs are retrieved from the ovaries and fertilized with sperm in a laboratory. The resulting embryos are then transferred to the uterus, where they may implant and grow into a pregnancy. IVF can help individuals or couples who are experiencing infertility caused by a number of conditions, such as blocked fallopian tubes, low sperm count or quality, ovulation issues, premature ovarian failure, endometriosis or unexplained infertility. IVF can also help overcome issues associated with age-related infertility.
Why IVF is a highly effective fertility treatment
IVF for infertility can be a successful treatment option for women and couples who are unable to conceive through other methods. It allows for the retrieval of multiple eggs, which are fertilized in the laboratory, so that the healthiest embryo can be transferred directly into the uterus.
As part of the process, patients can choose to have genetic testing performed to identify embryos with the correct number of chromosomes. Other genetic tests are available that can identify whether specific gene abnormalities are present in embryos, so that only embryos free of known genetic disorders are transferred to the uterus.
IVF is a proven treatment that can overcome male infertility issues and increase the chances of a successful pregnancy. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) can be used during IVF to directly introduce a single sperm into each egg, bypassing factors that can lead to poor fertilization when sperm concentration is low or motility is poor.
