Information About Infertility

Infertility is considered the inability to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse.

Couples with concerns with this should seek an evaluation and medical advice from an infertility specialist.

Women at high risk of infertility are over 35, or women with endometriosis, fibroids, uterine blockage, or cervical scarring. Options for treatment include: in-virto fertilization, fertility drugs, donor insemination, etc.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

A technique for conception of a human embryo outside the mother's body.

Several ova, or eggs, are removed from the mother's body and placed in special laboratory culture dishes (Petri dishes); sperm from the father are then added.

If fertilization occurs, a fertilized ovum, after undergoing several cell divisions, is either transferred to the mother's or a surrogate mother's body for normal development in the uterus, or frozen for later implantation.

Eggs can also now be frozen and fertilized later.
