My husband and I came to Dr Morris without a clue of what was wrong. Dr Morris took his time to explain what the situation is and what it means for us in having a baby. Dr Morris and his staff were compassionate thought out our time with them. They were there to answer our questions and to discuss other options. After four months of treatment we were lucky enough to become pregnant with a little girl born in September 2014.

We highly recommend Dr. Morris and his wonderful staff. They are each caring, supportive and knowledgeable. We couldn’t be more thankful to be led to them. From our last cycle (& a long infertility journey), we are 31 wks along with our first child… our baby girl. ♡
Unfortunately, miscarriage is a common problem. About half the women in the U.S. will have at least one miscarriage at some point during their reproductive lives. Learn about the causes of miscarriage.
D&C’s are a thing of the past! At IVF1, Dr. Morris uses a more accurate method to obtain pregnancy tissue to evaluate the cause of a miscarriage. This technique utilizes a hysteroscope to selectively remove only the fetal tissue which can then be sent for analysis.
The United States Department of Agricultural has stressed that pregnant women are at high risk for getting sick from Listeria and that listeriosis (Listeria infection) can cause miscarriage and other complications of pregnancy.
The technology for egg freezing has improved so much in the last few years that it is now considered to be just as good a method for fertility preservation as embryo freezing. Learn about egg freezing at IVF1.
SoldierCryo™ offers free fertility preservation to military personnel who are Naperville residents that are being deployed to active duty overseas. For men, this will include sperm freezing and storage for the duration of their tour of duty. For women, this will include egg freezing and storage for the duration of their tour of duty.
Although less common, some fertility medications are best administered by intramuscular injection. This article contains step by step instructions and pictures for giving yourself an intramuscular injection.
Progesterone, one of the reproductive hormones normally produced by the ovary after ovulation. It is needed to prepare the endometrium for implantation of an embryo and is used as part of an assisted reproductive technology (ART), ovulation induction or sometimes to induce a period in a woman who hasn’t ovulated.
Lovenox™ is a medication used to help reduce the chances for blood clots (a.k.a thrombosis) from forming. At IVF1, we use Lovenox™ to prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) from occurring during or shortly after surgery. We also use Lovenox™ in women with recurrent miscarriage due to increased blood clotting.
Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive a pregnancy after one year of unprotected intercourse. This definition of infertility is useful as a starting guide but must be modified to accommodate what we have learned through the IVF infertility treatment.
Vaginal lubricants are often used to treat vaginal dryness during intercourse. For couples trying to conceive, vaginal dryness can be an even bigger problem since they need to have scheduled and more frequent intercourse around the time of ovulation.
That is what we hear our patients say. Our staff is dedicated to helping you conceive and reduce your risk for miscarriage. All programs are not the same. Experience care from board certified fertility specialists with advanced, individualized treatment plans. We have the latest most successful technologies administered by experts with a caring, human touch.
