TREATMENTS FOR INFERTILITY
Infertility problems in women can be brought on by a range of issues, such as PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), uterine fibroids or polyps, hormone imbalances, aging, menopause, endometriosis, and more. Based on the cause of your infertility, our team at Lawrence Family Practice Center offers a range of options to help you start your family. Some of these techniques include:
- Intrauterine insemination (IUI): IUI is an in-office treatment that only takes a handful of minutes to do. Before your procedure, sperm will be collected and is washed to remove seminal fluid and concentrate the sperm. The gathered sperm is then placed inside of the uterus via a tiny catheter that is attached to a syringe, bypassing the cervix to place the sperm closer to the fallopian tubes. This raises the chances that the sperm will come in contact with the egg.
- Sperm washing: Sperm washing is a technique that is used for IUI and IVF (in vitro fertilization) to remove certain chemicals from the sperm and increase the chances of fertilization.
