Non-surgical fertility treatments (fertility medications) are usually first-line treatment for many couples who have been unable to conceive. They are most often used to treat ovulatory disorders, and consist of powerful fertility drugs such as clomiphene citrate (Clomid) and gonadotropins to induce ovulation. At SCRC, we use the latest drugs available. We support research and development efforts of major pharmaceutical companies by conducting clinical trials of novel fertility treatments, as well as newer formulations or delivery systems of existing drugs. Our patients who participate in these clinical trials are often able to receive these medications at little to no cost.
Surgical infertility treatments are helpful in correcting pelvic abnormalities such as uterine fibroids and pelvic adhesions. Surgical correction is also used as an endometriosis treatment. The fertility specialists at SCRC use only the most advanced, minimally invasive surgical techniques whenever possible.
Assisted reproductive technologies (ART) comprise perhaps the most advanced set of infertility treatments available in the fertility specialist's toolkit. These sophisticated techniques, performed in SCRC's Los Angeles fertility clinic and IVF laboratory, have made pregnancy a reality for thousands of couples who thought they could never conceive. Some of the ART procedures available at SCRC include:
Did you know: the overwhelming majority of infertility cases in the U.S. (85 to 90 percent) are treated with conventional therapies such as medical or surgical treatment, as opposed to IVF or assisted reproductive technology (ART)?
