Not all infertility patients require advanced treatment, such as IVF. Many only need simple intervention such as ovulation monitoring with timed intercourse or ovulation enhancing oral medications. 

After a thorough diagnostic work-up, a treatment plan, customized to both your needs and family goals will be created. You will be offered a variety of options, starting with basic treatments enhancing your natural fertility process to advanced ART techniques.

Minimally invasive surgery used to open and fix blocked or damaged fallopian tubes. Laparoscopy can also be used to treat endometriosis and pelvic pain causing infertility.

When the cause of your infertility is unexplained, a cervical factor, or irregular or absent ovulation and you desire a low intervention treatment option working with our medical team to correctly time intercourse should be considered.

Ovulation Induction is a process in which fertility medications, oral (Clomid, Letrozole) and/or injectable (FSH, hCG), encourage your ovaries to release eggs, so you maximize your chance of conception through intercourse or artificial insemination (IUI). It suits women who are producing low levels of hormones for ovulation, or who are not ovulating at all.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), or artificial insemination, is a process where a prepared sperm sample is concentrated and sterilized before being inserted through the cervix and placed directly into the uterine cavity. This treatment is very successful for problems with the cervical mucus issues, such as previous cervical cone biopsy and for cases of sub-optimal sperm parameters. This sperm processing takes about one hour and the insemination procedure takes just a few minutes and is similar to a pap test. This process may be used alone or in conjunction with ovulation induction.
