The best IVF treatment options will increase the chances of a quality embryo embedding into the intended mother’s uterine lining and naturally developing into a fetus. IVF is performed with the eggs of the mother – or a donor’s eggs – depending on the diagnosis of infertility. Patients have the option of using donor eggs or donor sperm through IVF.

  • Synchronization of the donor’s and intended mother’s cycles
  • Stimulation of the egg donor’s ovaries using fertility medication
  • Preparation of the intended mother’s uterine lining
  • Retrieval of the donor’s eggs
  • Fertilization of the donor’s eggs with sperm in vitro
  • Transfer of quality embryos into the intended mother’s uterus
