If you’re having trouble with infertility and cannot get pregnant, fertility treatments help increase your chances of having a baby.
We work tirelessly to find the cause of infertility in couples. We begin testing men for fertility issues by testing their semen. We’ll examine the number, movement, and shape of the sperm. We test women by tracking ovulation and taking an ultrasound of their ovaries. If these tactics do not give us answers, we perform common fertility tests that include:
We offer many different types of fertility treatments that we customize to your needs. Our types of fertility treatments include:
Infertility affects about 50% of women and 40% of men. It is a very common issue. Over seven million Americans are affected by infertility.
There is no specific timeframe for freezing eggs, embryos, and ovarian tissue.
If you’ve tried to get pregnant for over one year, it’s time to think about fertility testing. We will test earlier in some instances, including if you’re over 35, have medical issues that may affect fertility, or are attempting to get pregnant through artificial insemination.
The most common cause of infertility in women is a problem with ovulation because there are no eggs available for fertilization. Other causes of infertility in women include:
The most common causes of infertility in men include:
An intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) involves injecting a single sperm into an egg to boost conception. If a man has no sperm, there are some cases where Dr. Hosseinzadeh and a reproductive urologist work together to attempt to retrieve sperm from the testicles.
The most important factors that can affect a woman’s risk of infertility include:
Yes, many diseases and treatments can lead to infertility. Patients undergoing chemotherapy for cancer, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis have a greater chance of experiencing premature ovarian failure. Diabetes and obesity may also contribute to infertility.
An intrauterine insemination (IUI) process takes approximately two weeks. During treatment, we stimulate your ovaries to produce follicles that lead to ovulation so we can perform the insemination. In vitro fertilization (IVF) lasts four to six weeks before egg retrieval. We transfer embryos three to five days after egg retrieval.
Some insurance plans in California offer coverage for fertility treatments. Contact your insurance carrier if you are unsure if they cover fertility treatment. If they do not cover fertility treatment, we will work with you to find an affordable treatment option.
PGT is innovative genetic testing of embryos that allows us to screen embryos for genetic diseases before implantation. This decreases the odds of finding chromosomal abnormalities during pregnancy. We can only perform PGT on IVF patients.
The best option to preserve fertility before chemotherapy is egg freezing. This process allows a woman the ability to preserve healthy eggs that we freeze and store. We can later extract the eggs and impregnate them with sperm.
We prescribe fertility medications that match your treatment protocol, including:
Yes, you can carry a baby if you are in menopause. A woman in menopause cannot get pregnant naturally but can use frozen eggs, embryos, or ovarian tissue.
We spare no expense to provide the best fertility care in the area. Our San Diego fertility clinic was the first program in the county to have a high-tech ultrasound machine and the most comprehensive electronic medical records for our patients. We were the first fertility clinic in the United States to offer the most technologically advanced laminar flow hood.
