Fertility Services Offered

Fertility Evaluation

We offer comprehensive fertility evaluations for both individuals and couples to identify any underlying factors that may be affecting their ability to conceive. Our fertility specialists conduct thorough assessments, including medical history review, physical examinations, and diagnostic tests such as hormone testing, ultrasound imaging, and semen analysis.

Ovulation Induction

Ovulation induction is a treatment option for women who are having difficulty ovulating regularly. Our fertility specialists utilize medications and hormone therapies to stimulate ovulation and improve the chances of conception.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a fertility treatment that involves placing washed and concentrated sperm directly into the uterus around the time of ovulation. It is a minimally invasive and cost-effective option for couples with certain fertility challenges, such as low sperm count or cervical factor infertility.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a highly effective assisted reproductive technology (ART) that involves fertilizing eggs with sperm outside the body in a laboratory setting. Our fertility clinic offers state-of-the-art IVF services, including ovarian stimulation, egg retrieval, fertilization, embryo culture, and embryo transfer, with personalized care and support throughout the treatment process.

Egg Freezing (Oocyte Cryopreservation)

Egg freezing, also known as oocyte cryopreservation, allows women to preserve their fertility by freezing their eggs for future use. Our fertility specialists offer egg freezing services to women who wish to delay childbearing for personal or medical reasons, providing them with peace of mind and reproductive options later in life.

Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT)

Preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) is a specialized genetic screening technique used during IVF to assess embryos for genetic abnormalities before they are transferred to the uterus. Our fertility clinic offers PGT services to help couples undergoing IVF reduce the risk of passing on genetic disorders to their children and improve the likelihood of a successful pregnancy.
