In Vitro Fertilization

The Benefits of IVF

IVF is an effective form of assisted reproductive technology (ART). The 20,000 (and counting!) pregnancies created by the Fertility Institute are largely attributed to these advanced reproductive treatments.

During IVF, you will be frequently monitored by our team of experienced fertility specialists throughout the process. Treatments are personalized to you based on your individual fertility health and family-building goals, whether you need ovulation induction, want to freeze eggs or embryos for future use, or need an egg or sperm donor.

IVF & Infertility

IVF is an effective treatment for several types of female and male infertility. Because fertilization occurs in an IVF lab, our specialists can bypass certain reproductive issues, including ovulation disorders, blocked fallopian tubes, low sperm count, or endometriosis.

IVF & LGBTQ+ Family Building

LGBTQ+ couples and individuals who want to have biological children can do so through IVF. Our specialists can complete the process using a donor egg or sperm. The embryo can then be carried by one of the parents-to-be or using a gestational carrier.

The state of Louisiana has very specific laws regarding most aspects of LGBTQ+ family building. Before starting treatments, we advise our LGBTQ+ patients to seek the advice of an attorney who specializes in assisted reproduction technologies and the related Louisiana laws on embryos, surrogacy, adoption, and LGBTQ+ rights.

IVF & Genetic Testing

Some couples may be at risk for passing on certain genetic defects to their children, which can impact the health of the pregnancy and the baby. Embryos created through IVF can be tested for specific genetic defects or chromosome abnormalities, and healthy embryos can be transferred or cryopreserved for future use.

IVF & Donors

IVF enables individuals or couples to use donor eggs, donor sperm, or donor embryos to achieve a pregnancy. The use of donor eggs or a donor embryo might be required in women of advanced age or with decreased ovarian reserve. Donor sperm can be used for men with no sperm production, single women who want to have a child, or in third-party reproduction for LGBTQ+ patients.
