Infertility Treatment Options

Dr. Zhang will accurately diagnose the root cause of your infertility before designing a customized treatment plan to improve your chances of getting pregnant.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is the placement of a concentrated amount of motile sperm specimen directly into a woman’s uterus. The goal is to increase the number of sperm reaching the woman’s fallopian tubes to facilitate egg fertilization. IUI is performed in the doctor’s office and requires no anesthesia – similar to a Pap smear. IUI treatment is perfectly timed with ovulation whether or not fertility medications are used.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is recommended for women who have failed to achieve a pregnancy after undergoing a series of less complicated medical procedures, such as timed intercourse and IUI.

There are varied traditional and holistic protocols of IVF offered by pioneering IVF Dr. Zhang.

IVF Procedure

The IVF procedure consists of approximately six steps, although the process may be modified depending on the Doctor’s evidence-based recommended protocol:

  • Stimulation of the growth and development of multiple egg follicles within the ovaries using fertility drugs (FSH- follicle stimulating hormones), also known as controlled hyperstimulation of the ovaries
  • Monitoring of the growth of the egg follicles through regular ultrasounds and blood tests
  • Surgical removal of matured eggs from the follicles on the ovaries through technique known as aspiration
  • Fertilization of the eggs in a controlled laboratory setting through a technique known as Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
  • Embryo culture in vitro for several days – allowing the embryos to grow and develop in the laboratory
  • Transfer of a predetermined number of quality embryos into the uterus using a catheter – similar to that of a Pap smear procedure
  • Progesterone is prescribed daily via suppository to help prepare the patient’s uterine lining for implantation of the fertilized egg – the embryo
  • A pregnancy test is scheduled on a date prescribed by the doctor through a blood draw
