What is IVF In Vitro Fertilization Genesis Fertility NYC
In vitro fertilization or IVF is awellestablished safe and effective treatment option for many women facinginfertility. The first step of IVF is controlled ovarian stimulation. At thebeginning of the menstrual cycle, daily injections of hormonal medications areadministered to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs rather than asingle egg. Once the eggs are mature, they are retrieved in a thirtyminuteprocedure. The patient is anesthetized and the physician direct the needle intothe follicles of the ovary and removes the maturing eggs. The eggs are immediately fertilized with sperm and stored in a
controlled setting. When the embryo isready to be implanted, the physician transfers it directly into the uterusduring a nonsurgical procedure which is performed in our office. If additionalembryos are produced, they can be cryopreserved or frozen for later use. Cryopreservation of embryos can increase the chance of achieving a pregnancy from a single egg retrieval. With multiple fertility centers in the New York Cityarea Genesis serves patients from BrooklynStaten Island Long Island and lower Manhattan New York.
