Who Should Consider the IVF Program

In general, patients with infertility due to a condition not responsive to conventional therapy are considered for the IVF procedure. Diagnoses include:

  • Tubal Disease
    Surgical procedures to correct the problem may have been unsuccessful or the individual may be judged to have a poor chance for success with the surgery. Patients also may have chosen not to accept the risks involved with the surgery.
     
  •  Endometriosis
    Traditional treatments may have been unsuccessful.
     
  • Cervical Factors or Antibody Problems
    Usual treatment measures have failed.
     
  • Unexplained Infertility
    No definite cause has been identified.
     
  • Male Factor Infertility
    Low sperm count or reduced sperm motility, antibodies, or surgically collected sperm.
     
  •  Recurrent Pregnancy Loss
    For unknown reasons, women with recurrent pregnancy loss of undetermined origin do very well with IVF.
     
  •  Ovarian failure
    Patients who have undergone menopause , have reduced ovarian reserve, or consistently make poor embryos can continue with IVF using donated eggs or embryos.
     
  • Gestational Host
    This is for women without a uterus, with a uterus not capable of carrying a baby, those who have serious medical problems that would make it unwise for them to carry a baby, and in cases of unexplained failure to conceive with prior IVF cycles.
