THE RISE FERTILITY PROCESS

IVF Step-By-Step

We customize the most advanced techniques and
cutting edge technology to increase your chances of success.

STEP 1

Custom IVF Protocol

Fertility care is not one size fits all. Your RISE Fertility physician will personalize a treatment protocol to fit your needs and meet your goals.

STEP 2

Ovarian Stimulation

Medications promote the growth of the eggs over 10-12 days. You are carefully monitored during this phase in order to optimize your cycle.

STEP 3

Egg Retrieval & Sperm Collection

A 10-15 minute procedure under anesthesia is performed to collect the eggs, which are then combined with sperm to create embryos.

STEP 4

Embryo Development

The embryos are observed in the lab for up to 7 days. They can be transferred into the uterus, biopsied for preimplantation genetic testing, or frozen and saved for the future.

Natural & Minimal Stimulation IVF

For some carefully selected patients, we can use a natural or minimal approach to stimulate egg development using little to no medication. After reviewing your history and goals, we can discuss the pros and cons of this strategy and determine if it's right for you.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Common Questions About IVF

An IVF cycle is a relatively quick process that takes about 10-14 days. The length of the process varies based on the individual patient, their response to the medications, and how the eggs grow.
Over the course of the 10-12 day stimulation phase, you will come to the office for about 3-4 quick (15-20 minutes) monitoring visits. Blood work and an ultrasound are performed to check follicular growth.
The medications are generally well tolerated with few, if any, side effects. Some patients may experience hormonal symptoms such as bloating and fatigue, which usually go away once medications are stopped.
There is no “cookie cutter” medicine here. Your RISE Fertility physician will factor in your medical history, previous fertility treatments, and your ovarian reserve and hormone testing to create a personalized treatment protocol to optimize your outcome.
IVF actually has a lower risk of multiple pregnancy compared to other fertility treatments because you decide how many embryos are transferred into the uterus. If you transfer one embryo, there is about a 1% chance that embryo will split and lead to a twin pregnancy.
This is a common misconception. The IVF process simply stimulates eggs to grow and mature that would have otherwise died during a cycle. IVF does not remove all your eggs, affect your future fertility, or make you start menopause earlier.
No, birth control pills are not required to do an IVF cycle, but there may be some instances where taking a birth control pill would be beneficial. Your RISE Fertility physician will review the strategy with you before starting a cycle.
Some insurance plans cover fertility diagnostics, but coverage for fertility treatment depends on your carrier and policy. At RISE Fertility, our unique financial consultation process will help you navigate the costs of fertility care and review your insurance benefit coverage, while our exclusive fertility financing options help put treatment within reach.
