At The Fertility Center of Las Vegas, we believe in the importance of personalized care.
We begin our fertility treatments with extensive diagnostic testing to ensure that each patient is properly assessed and diagnosed correctly. Once we understand your personal fertility challenges, we will consult with you and review the variety of fertility treatments we offer. Together with your doctor, you will select the course of treatment that is best for you. After determining your personalized treatment plan, you will receive compassionate, professional care throughout the course of your treatment.
Fertility treatment can include one or more of the following procedures:
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) – The most popular fertility procedure, IVF, is responsible for thousands of healthy births. In Vitro Fertilization involves the removal of eggs from a woman, fertilization of those eggs with sperm, and transfer of the fertilized embryos back to the uterus. »
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) – Also called artificial insemination, Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) involves sperm being inserted into the woman’s uterus at the time of ovulation. IUI is an inexpensive alternative to In Vitro Fertilization. »
Egg Donor IVF (Oocyte Donation, Ovum Donation, Donor Egg) – Some women cannot produce good eggs or cannot produce enough good eggs to have a high chance of success with IVF with their own eggs. An excellent option for these women is to use eggs from an egg donor (oocyte donor). »
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) – Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is used to inject one selected sperm directly into an egg. The eggs may be fertilized conventionally by placing them in a dish with sperm and waiting for a sperm to enter each egg. »
Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis and Screening – Some patients may have a family history of diseases that are carried on their chromosomes, such as cystic fibrosis. In order to reduce the risk of having a child with such a disease, the patient might opt for genetic testing of embryos. »
Assisted Hatching – Assisted hatching may improve pregnancy rates in some women undergoing IVF. In assisted hatching, an opening is formed in the shell (the zona) surrounding the embryo before the embryo is transferred to the uterus. »
Embryo Donation – Many couples have a baby with their in vitro fertilization procedure and do not return to use their frozen embryos. These couples might choose to donate their embryos for use by other couples. »
Extended Culture and Blastocyst Transfer – Once eggs are fertilized, they are grown in special culture media. Nationwide, the most common transfers are on day three, but blastocyst (day five) transfers are becoming more popular each year. »
Egg Freezing & Fertility Preservation – Many patients are worried about the proverbial biological clock ticking away. Although ovaries can decline at any time, even in our 20s, the average woman begins to experience decline starting around age 33 to 35. »
Embryo Cryopreservation (Freezing) & Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) – Embryo cryopreservation involves the freezing of embryos for later use. This is most often done with excess embryos remaining after the transfer of fresh embryos. »
Gender Selection (Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis with IVF) – Gender selection is a fertility procedure used to choose the gender of a baby prior to conception. Gender selection can be elective or for medical reasons. »
