Traditionally, fertility treatments in the past have had a tendency to fall on a woman’s plate. However, it is just as necessary to diagnose and treat infertility factors in men.
Fertility preservation has become more important over the last few years with the steady incline in the average age of women trying to conceive.
Genetic screening is a way to diagnose if a couple is at risk for certain genetic disorders. Optimally, genetic screening should be performed prior to a pregnancy. With any IVF procedure, there should be Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGT). PGT is a screening test that helps determine if a genetic (chromosonal) disorder is present in an embryo before it is transferred for implantation.
In Vitro Fertilization is a highly effective and safe way to treat infertility. Translating to “in glass”, In vitro fertilization provides a safer environment in which sperm may fertilize an egg (oocyte) in a laboratory setting. Currently, IVF is the most recognized treatment for assisted reproduction. Since the first procedures in the late 70’s there have been millions of successful births worldwide and IVF accounts for nearly 50,000 births in the United States annually.
Laparoscopy is a surgery performed for diagnosis and treatment of female infertility. We use a thin, lighted tube (Laparoscope) fitted with a small camera that is inserted in an 1/2-3/4 inch incision in the abdomen or pelvic region to directly visualize infertility problems that may be occurring in a patient.
Many women who decide to have tubal ligation surgery may go through changes in life that lead to later wanting to have children again. The Lexington Fertility Center specializes in tubal ligation reversal for qualified candidates. Tubal reversal is a micro surgical procedure in which a previous tubal ligation is repaired restoring the function of the fallopian tubes therefore increasing the chances of fertility.
