Our Fertility Treatment Options
For some individuals and couples, the journey to parenthood may feel long or frustrating at times. The fertility and reproductive medicine team at Cedars-Sinai is committed to being your light at the end of the tunnel.
We offer the full range of fertility treatment options. We will help you choose what's best for you based on your wishes and situation.
Our fertility treatments include:
- Ovulation induction, which uses medications to help your body to ovulate, or release an egg, to be fertilized
- Superovulation, which allows you to release more than one egg during your cycle to increase the chance of conception
- Intrauterine insemination (IUI), which involves placing sperm directly in a woman's uterus to increase the chance of conception
- In vitro fertilization (IVF), also called assisted reproductive technology or ART, which involves:
- Fertility medications
- Removing eggs from the woman's body (egg retrieval)
- Combining eggs and sperm together in the laboratory to promote fertilization and formation of embryos
- Develop embryos in the laboratory
- Transferring an embryo(s) into a woman's uterus
Are you considering having a baby, but now isn't the right time? Freezing eggs, embryos and sperm—also called fertility preservation—allows you to save reproductive tissue so it's available when you're ready.
In addition to wanting to wait to have kids, you may decide to pursue fertility preservation if you:
- Are preparing to begin treatment for cancer
- Are preparing to begin treatment for certain autoimmune diseases (such as lupus)
- Are considering medical or surgical treatment as a transgender individual
- Have a condition that affects your fertility, such as endometriosis
We offer minimally invasive surgical procedures to diagnose and treat reproductive health conditions that may affect your fertility. One of those procedures is called hysteroscopy, which allows surgeons to look at the walls of the uterus to treat and determine the cause of any problems.
Conditions that may be treated by undergoing a minimally invasive surgical procedure include:
- Abnormal bleeding
- Recurrent pregnancy loss
- Uterine scar tissue
Just like every person is unique, every journey to parenthood is special, too. At Cedars-Sinai, we focus on making that experience available to all individuals, circumstances and needs.
Some individuals and couples, including same-sex couples, need the help of a donor to conceive a child. Others simply want to take certain steps to increase their chances of a future pregnancy. Third-party reproduction can involve:
- Gestational carriers, who carry a child in their uterus using the egg and sperm of a couple, donors or individual and a donor.
- Donor eggs, which allow gestational carriers or women who are unable to use their own eggs to carry a child in their uterus.
- Donor sperm, which offers a solution for men who are unable to use their own sperm or for a woman or surrogate to use.
Our Fertility Treatments: What to Expect
You’ll begin treatment by undergoing a diagnostic fertility evaluation. This exam and testing helps us tailor treatment options precisely to your needs. They also provide important information about your overall health, which may be affecting your ability to conceive or carry a successful pregnancy.
During each visit, you’ll meet with a doctor, who will perform all imaging tests and treatments needed. One of the defining features of our practice here at Cedars-Sinai is that all ultrasounds are performed by a doctor, not an ultrasound technician, so that you can have all your questions answered during your visit.
If you become pregnant, you’ll undergo routine imaging through our Prenatal Diagnosis Center. The Cedars-Sinai Prenatal Diagnosis Center is one of the nation's largest and most experienced providers of prenatal testing, screening and diagnosis. Our center offers high-quality, detailed imaging to monitor the health of you and your baby during pregnancy.
