What is IVF?
In-vitro fertilization (IVF) is a common infertility treatment where an egg is fertilized by sperm outside of the body and then transferred into a woman’s uterus in order to establish a successful pregnancy. The egg is fertilized by sperm in vitro, meaning “in a glass.”

What to expect from Fertility Treatment
You understand the IVF meaning, but what about the process? While protocols are varied and customized for your body, there are some typical low-cost and quick approaches to fertility that we like to try before recommending a full IVF cycle. In cases where the indication for IVF is strong, these steps may be skipped. But it is important to discuss all your options with your doctor.
We will monitor your naturally occurring fertility cycle and guide you and your partner to the optimal time to have intercourse for the highest chance of conception. This is a very low-cost approach to fertility treatment and has great success with patients who suffer from ovulatory irregularities (ovulation timing) or in conjunction with Intrauterine insemination.
Ovulation Induction is the term for the stimulation of ovulation in the anovulatory patient. The aim is to stimulate the growth of a single follicle with the release of its egg. Superovulation is the term used for stimulating the growth of multiple follicles with the release of multiple eggs. Involving medication and fertility drugs, this is a typical step in any IVF journey and may be used in conjunction with initial pregnancy attempts using IUI and Timed intercourse.
This is a method of recreating intercourse, artificially. After washing, sorting, and analyzing your partner’s semen, the best sperm samples will be introduced to the uterus through a catheter. This is great for patients whose sperm have difficulty reaching the egg naturally because of male factor infertility, or female factors that inhibit the sperm from passing the cervix.
In some cases, the specific cause of your infertility might not be evident or easy to identify. A Laparoscopy might be requested to discover what’s going on inside the abdominal cavity or around the pelvic organs. A Hysteroscopy may be requested in the case of Fibroids, tissue scarring, or several other reasons.
Achieving a healthy pregnancy is critical. Because this is our primary concern, New Hope Fertility Center in New York can refer you to a local Maternal Fetal Medicine physician who will focus on managing the health concerns of both the mother and Fetus prior to, during and right after pregnancy.
Acupuncture has been documented to have measurable benefits to patients trying to conceive. From reducing stress and making you feel well to increasing the blood flow to improve implantation, acupuncture is recommended for all patients undergoing IVF.
Consultation with a psychologist can be useful for many reasons. In addition to emotional support during fertility treatment, the psychologist can assist with difficult decisions, help couples resolve differences, and provide counseling for the complex decisions surrounding family building through donor egg or donor sperm. The psychologist is compassionate, nonjudgmental, and discreet. Additionally, the psychologist can determine if psychotherapy is the best option for the individual and provide referrals to other knowledgeable mental health professionals when needed.

Lower chance of passing on genetic conditions
For couples with a high risk of passing on a genetic abnormality, a preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) can provide answers before transfer to a woman’s uterus.
IVF can be expensive and is not always covered by insurance. Our staff will work with you to figure out if IVF can fit in your budget.
While IVF’s success rates are a pro, they can also be a con as IVF does not work for all couples. It is important to remember that a couple in perfect health and in their mid 20’s will only have a 25% chance of becoming pregnant naturally, each time they try.
Complications and side-effects
There may be complications and side-effects to IVF that women should be aware of, including gastrointestinal pain, nausea, rapid weight gain, diarrhea, and bloating.
