Getting Started with Fertility Treatment
The time that you spend in our infertility clinic will be well spent. After an initial consultation with our reproductive endocrinologist or physician assistant, you will move closer and closer to the results you desire. Whether it’s a diagnosis and targeted fertility treatment, or fertility rescue to preserve your family-building options, New York Fertility Services commits to guiding you toward success.
Treatment can take many forms at our infertility clinic. We provide comprehensive services to help men and women–single, married, gay or straight–become parents, today and in the future.
Talk with one of our front office team members to prepare for your first visit to our infertility clinic. We will help you make the most of your time with Joel Batzofin, M.D., FACOG .
If you are experiencing infertility:
More than 12 months have passed and you have not had success getting pregnant on your own. Your fertility treatment plan will begin with fertility tests that will usually take place over one full menstrual cycle. Because male infertility accounts for half of all cases, our infertility center coordinates semen analysis early in the process.
Common fertility treatment options include:
- Ovulation induction
- Intrauterine insemination IUI
- In vitro fertilization IVF, and expanded IVF options such as ICSI and PGD
- Immune therapy (IVIG)
- Minimally invasive fertility surgery
- Donor services and third-party reproduction
If you need fertility rescue:
After a cancer diagnosis and prior to chemotherapy or surgery, call us to arrange for fertility rescue. For women, this means we work with your oncologist to schedule an emergency fertility treatment cycle. Our reproductive endocrinologists induce ovulation so that you produce a good supply of eggs. Next, we retrieve and freeze the eggs for later use, after the threat of cancer is gone. Fertility preservation for cancer patients is an essential service, and one that our infertility center proudly offers.
If you are over 35 or worried about age and infertility:
Our infertility clinic offers the latest fertility tests and egg freezing for fertility preservation. A blood test for anti-Müllerian hormone, AMH can predict the number of eggs remaining in your ovaries. With ovarian reserve testing, you can make a proactive plan for fertility treatment.
If you are considering gender selection:
Genetic testing opens up new options for parents who elect to pursue fertility treatment. Our infertility clinic works closely with our IVF laboratory to plan for preimplantation genetic diagnosis, PGD. Testing a single, non-essential cell from a developing embryo provides us data about potential for genetic disease, the sex of the baby and viability of each embryo.
If you are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender and want to start a family:
Fertility treatment may entail donor sperm with IUI; donor sperm with IVF; or donor eggs with a gestational surrogate. Our infertility center provides inclusive, caring fertility treatment for all people.
Our infertility center is convenient to midtown Manhattan and the areas of Hartford, Stamford and beyond. When you decide it is time to take proactive steps toward getting pregnant, contact us to learn more about fertility treatment and fertility preservation.
