Is Undergoing North Houston IVF Right For You?
According to Penn Medicine, 1 to 2% of U.S. births every year are achieved through In Vitro Fertilization, also known as IVF. If you have been trying to get pregnant for over a year with no luck, then you may be experiencing infertility. North Houston IVF, a popular fertility treatment at our Kingwood and The Woodlands fertility clinics, is an option many patients turn to. So, is Kingwood and The Woodlands IVF right for you? Here’s what we think.
Understanding What North Houston IVF Is
Before you consider IVF, let’s discuss what it is.
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is the process by which an egg is fertilized by sperm outside of the body in one of our specialized Kingwood and The Woodlands IVF labs. After the fertilized egg develops into a day-5 embryo–known as the Blastocyst–we will implant it into the intended mother’s uterus (unless you opt for IVF with a gestational carrier).
Is North Houston IVF The Right Fertility Option For You?
Now that you understand what IVF is, here is what may make for a good North Houston IVF candidate:
In addition to good health–which may be improved upon by following a fertility-boosting diet–you might be a good IVF candidate if you:
- Have been trying to naturally conceive for over a year
- Haven’t successfully become pregnant with other fertility treatments, such as IUI
- Have been diagnosed with endometriosis
- Suffer from PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)
- Are suffering from a low sperm count or low motility
- Are an LGBTQ+ couple
Ultimately, Fertility Testing And Our North Houston IVF Specialists Will Help Determine If IVF Is Right For You And Your Partner
IVF is effective for couples faced with several different circumstances, and our Kingwood and The Woodlands IVF clinics have impressive IVF success rates. However, we don’t usually recommend IVF as the first method to treat infertility. Often, lower-cost options may still result in a healthy pregnancy, but this just depends on our patients’ situations. If you would like to determine if North Houston IVF is a good option for you, please request an appointment with our IVF specialists in Kingwood or The Woodlands so we can begin our relationship with you by understanding your medical and sexual histories and initiating infertility testing.
