While many couples struggling with infertility feel alone, infertility is a common issue. It affects 10% to 15% of couples in the U.S. The good news is infertility is treatable. Experts recommend couples visit a fertility clinic if:
They've been trying to conceive for a year or more and the person trying to get pregnant is younger than 35.
They've been trying for six months or more and the person trying to get pregnant is 35 or older. (In your late 30s, you have less time to wait for things to happen naturally.)

About Our Infertility Services
We take a you-focused approach to fertility. We listen to you and start right away with tests that help us understand what you need. Then we suggest a treatment plan, considering your own experience, age, medical history and preferences. You'll be glad to finally have a clear road map after a period of uncertainty.
Just as we're proud of our high success rates, we're equally proud of our safe approach to fertility treatments. The Society of Assisted Reproductive Technology recognizes our fertility clinic for having among the nation's lowest rates of pregnancies with three or more fetuses. (Because one or two at a time is enough, right?)
The fertility services we offer include:
We offer an array of tests for both men and women. To speed things along — because you've waited long enough — we group tests together whenever possible. The results help you and your team decide on the best treatments for you.
In this procedure, your doctor places concentrated sperm directly into the uterus. This is a common treatment for fertility issues, and it's also how many couples who use donor sperm get pregnant.
IVF involves extracting eggs and placing them with sperm in a petri dish to form blastocysts. (That's the stage before embryos.) The doctor then places one or more of the healthiest blastocysts in the uterus. IVF significantly increases the pregnancy odds for couples struggling with infertility. It's also the path to pregnancy for those who use donor eggs and surrogacy.
We offer advanced freezing technologies to preserve additional embryos in case you'd prefer to wait before trying again or are planning a sibling for your first IVF baby.
An IVF add-on, this involves injecting the sperm directly into the egg. ICSI offers a workaround for a range of male-fertility issues. Doctors may also recommend it for frozen-egg fertilization.
Fertility treatment can be an emotional roller coaster. Our financial counselors and psychologists help guide you in the decision-making process. With these team members by your side, the entire process feels far less daunting.
If you're new to IVF, you won't be going it alone. We offer injection classes twice a week to help you feel confident when administering the medications you need. These classes are a great opportunity to connect with others who are on the same journey as you.
