We have provided answers to some of our most frequently asked questions below, but please feel free to call us with any others of your own.
How Do I Know I Need to See a Fertility Specialist?
Trying to conceive is an exciting time for many. But for others, it can quickly become frustrating. Just because you are mentally ready to become a parent does not mean it will happen right away. For younger women, this may not be a concern. We recommend women aged 30 or younger try to conceive naturally for at least one year before seeking infertility treatments. However, the chances of conception start to slowly decline in one’s 30s. We want women who are 35 or older to seek assistance from Manhattan Reproductive Surgery Center if they have been unsuccessfully trying to conceive for six months or more. Finally, if you are 40 years of age or older, have experienced fertility problems in the past, or have irregular menstrual cycles, call our fertility doctors as soon as you decide to become pregnant.
Should My Partner Accompany Me to the Consultation?
Absolutely. The journey to parenthood is one you should share with your partner, so we encourage both prospective parents to visit our New York City clinic to discuss fertility treatments. During a consultation, we may review each person’s medical and family history to identify any causes for concern or potential reasons for your inability to conceive. At this time, we can also explain some of the fertility options we offer at our facility. Most of these treatments require both partners’ participation, so it is ideal for you to come as a couple.
Is There an Age Limit for Fertility Treatment?
We can discuss fertility options for women well into their 40s. Women may become infertile as young as 30 years of age or remain fertile in their mid-40s. But as you age, your fertility will decline and options become more limited. We encourage you to visit us when you are ready to become pregnant so that we may start planning how to help.
Do You Treat Overweight Patients?
Yes. There is no Body Mass Index (BMI) cutoff for fertility treatments at our facility. However, your chances of conception will improve significantly if you maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle. For some women, we may recommend weight management programs to help maximize their ability to conceive and carry a pregnancy to term.
How Long Does the Infertility Treatment Process Last?
The time it takes to complete infertility treatments will vary depending on the process that we determine is right for you. After a consultation to identify the cause of your infertility issues, we will explain your options and make suggestions about how to proceed. Our most common fertility treatments include:
- Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) – This process usually takes about two weeks. During this time, the ovaries are stimulated to produce follicles, ovulation occurs, and then we perform an insemination.
- In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) – Patients must prepare for multiple weeks before in vitro fertilization. During the first four weeks, we will perform tests to ensure safety and begin patients on birth control pills to regulate the menstrual cycle. Next, patients must take fertility medication for roughly two weeks. After this time, we retrieve an egg to fertilize it in a lab. Finally, we transfer one or more fertilized embryos to a woman’s uterus after three to five days. Overall, this process takes six to eight weeks.
Will My Insurance Cover Fertility Treatments?
You will need to consult with your insurance provider to learn more about your coverage. Unfortunately, not all plans cover fertility treatments.
