Common Treatment Options include:
- Ovulation Induction: Ovulation disorders are the most common cause of infertility in younger women. And the most common treatment of this problem is the use of various fertility drugs to restore ovulation.
- Intrauterine Insemination (IUI): Intrauterine insemination, where a fine catheter (tube) is inserted through the cervix (the natural opening of the uterus) into the uterus to deposit a sperm sample directly into the uterus, is used alone or in conjunction with ovulation induction in cases of sub-optimal semen parameters.
- Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART): Assisted reproductive technology includes IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) and related procedures such as ICSI (Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection or assisted fertilization), AZH (Assisted Zona Hatching), Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD), cryopreservation (freezing of eggs, sperm, and embryos), and egg donation. All of these procedures are supported by our endocrinology, andrology, and embryology laboratories, which are located on site at our Stamford, Connecticut, offices.
- Surgery: In some cases surgery is recommended to correct the cause of infertility and to improve the chances of success. Common conditions treated surgically include uterine polyps, uterine fibroids, and blocked fallopian tubes.
