Fertility Services Q & A

What are fertility services?

Fertility services are a wide-ranging group of medical services to help individuals and couples have a baby. At the Center for Human Reproduction, they welcome all patients from every walk of life. 

The experienced team never turns away tough cases they’re known as the specialists of last resort when fertility treatments at other facilities fail.

What are the different fertility services options?

The fertility services options at the Center for Human Reproduction include:


Diagnostic services, such as blood tests, specialized X-rays, ultrasounds, and fallopian tube obstruction tests, help the team to pinpoint the reason for fertility issues. 

Donor eggs

You can donate eggs, or you can receive donor eggs if you don’t make enough eggs on your own (low ovarian reserve). 

Egg freezing

Egg freezing means retrieving your eggs now and preserving them for possible use later. The younger you freeze your eggs, the better. That way, you can have your young eggs to use later, for example, in your 40s. 

Intrauterine insemination (IUI)

IUI means delivering sperm directly into the uterus. This service can help in instances where problems like fallopian tube blockages prevent normal sperm movement. Although it can be successful for women with good ovarian reserves, it’s not nearly as effective as IVF.

In vitro fertilization (IVF)

IVF means combining eggs and sperm in a lab before implanting the fertilized egg in your uterus, your partner’s uterus, or a gestational carrier’s uterus. 

Gender selection

Gender selection is a service in which the Center for Human Reproduction specialists use a high-tech genetic testing method to determine sex during IVF. Then, they can transfer only the fertilized eggs of the desired sex. 

Second opinion

The second opinion program is an important fertility service at the Center for Human Reproduction because the experienced team is happy to assess cases that other providers won’t. If you’re frustrated because of multiple failed cycles at another facility or because others have told you that you’re too old for IVF, you don’t need to give up. You need a second opinion. 

The Center for Human Reproduction team customizes your fertility services. They offer everything you need to have a baby in one safe and convenient location.

How do I start my fertility services?

First, you need to book a consultation. You fill out a questionnaire about your background and past fertility services (if any), and the more detail you can provide about your medical history, the better. An experienced team member helps you book a consultation to start your path to pregnancy very soon.
