Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART)

Assisted reproductive technology (ART) are treatment options used by couples with infertility that cannot be treated using simpler methods. ART procedures have increased success rates but require additional effort and can be expensive. For these reasons, ART options can be stressful. Therefore, we recommend that patients understand all aspects of the various medications and procedures involved. Please do not hesitate to ask your care team any questions, as we’re here for guidance and support.

During your journey we recommended additional emotional and nutritional support and/or counseling. At DIRM, we work closely with a network of counselors and nutrition specialists and are happy to make a recommendation, at your request.
