In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

Welcome to the IVF information pages of The Fertility Institutes. We maintain our own world recognized In Vitro Fertilization laboratories at each of our centers in Los Angeles, New York and Guadalajara, Mexico. Our combined success rates for pregnancies achieved and healthy babies born have remained one of the top programs nationwide for over 30 years.

Summary of the IVF Process

Your IVF care will be carried out by a dedicated team headed by reproductive endocrinologist Dr. Jeffrey Steinberg. Unlike many multi-physician programs that divide patient care between sometimes dozens of physicians, all professionals in our practice will know your individual case intimately. We begin IVF cycles based on your individual menstrual pattern, rather than grouping cases together for clinic convenience. For those undertaking IVF in our program, we offer an additional option of PGD gender selection that allows you to choose the sex of your pregnancy.

Affordable IVF

At The Fertility Institutes, we pride ourselves on the practice of Reproductive Medicine based on a solid foundation of science. Our commitment to providing the absolute highest quality medical care has resulted in an outstanding reputation with the consistent achievement of excellent pregnancy statistics.

NEW! We now offer very low cost "Minimal Stimulation" IVF for those unable to afford "standard" IVF or those that do not wish to undertake the standard fertility drug stimulation protocols. This process avoids the use of most of the standard fertility medication dosages, instead using very low dosages and provides an opportunity to achieve pregnancy utilizing the world's most advanced infertility technologies at a greatly reduced cost. Pregnancy rates with this method ARE NOT as high as with our standard IVF protocols and this method should only be considered by those with financial constraints or an objection to standard fertility medication treatment used in IVF. Our low cost pricing makes this method as affordable as non-IVF treatments that offer nowhere near the success rates as this new minimal stimulation technique. Fertility medication costs are very, very low. Please call us for additional information on this procedure. Costs are approximately $3,000 which is 1/4th to 1/5th the cost of standard IVF. We look forward to answering your questions about this exciting new option!

For those that may require the additional services of a surrogate mother or egg donor, we maintain our own, in-house roster of young, screened and tested University student egg donors. There are no agency fees charged for our donors. This can lead to a savings in the thousands of dollars! We have near immediate availability of tested and screened gestational surrogates as well. Unlike the often very long waits for a suitable surrogate, we are often able to effect a match within days to weeks. We are able to accommodate demanding patient work schedules by offering early morning evaluations that can put you back on the road to work efficiently.
