Once an infertility evaluation has determined the source of a couple's problems conceiving, then fertility treatment can begin. The road to success for many couples begins with ovulation induction using fertility drugs, intrauterine insemination (IUI), operative laparoscopy, and operative hysteroscopy.
Serving Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, and surrounding areas, Palmetto Fertility Center offers a range of infertility services, including in vitro fertilization, ICSI, and laser-assisted hatching. To learn more about any of our services, please contact us today.
Many women who have difficulty becoming pregnant can conceive with medical assistance. One form of treatment is ovulation induction, which is usually the first step in infertility treatment. In this treatment, medications are given to induce ovulation in women who have irregular periods. The medications can also be given to stimulate the production of multiple eggs in women who ovulate monthly, thus enhancing their ability to conceive. The medications come in two forms: oral (Clomiphene Citrate, Clomid®, or Serophene®) and injectable (Follistim®, Gonal-f®, or Menopur®).
Serving Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, and surrounding areas, Palmetto Fertility Center offers ovulation induction to women who suffer from infertility due to irregular ovulation. Contact us today to learn more about this treatment method.
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a process in which sperm are obtained from ejaculate, washed, and placed into a woman's uterus. Often, IUI is performed in conjunction with ovulation induction. IUI is performed for men with normal and low sperm counts. This will enhance the ability of sperm to fertilize the egg.
A woman's reproductive organs lie in her pelvis. There are a number of conditions that can affect the fallopian tubes, ovaries, and uterus and that can be treated surgically. Operative laparoscopy refers to a minimally invasive technique done on an outpatient basis. This procedure is helpful in treating many debilitating or infertility-causing conditions, including endometriosis, uterine fibroids, damage from infection, tubal disease, and pelvic adhesive disease.
Some women are evaluated with a laparoscopy, while more complex laparoscopy can restore a woman's pelvic anatomy to enhance fertility. Conditions such as endometriosis are usually diagnosed and treated laparoscopically.
With offices in Miami and the Ft. Lauderdale area, Palmetto Fertility Center offers services such as operative laparoscopy to help women battle infertility. To learn more about this and other treatments offered at our center, please contact us today. Dr. Graubert is performing fertility surgery, laparoscopy, and hysteroscopy at Palmetto General Hospital and Memorial Hospital Miramar.
The inside of a woman's uterus has a special lining called the endometrium. That lining is unique because it responds to the estrogen and progesterone that are produced monthly. There are a number of conditions that disrupt the endometrium and can lead to heavy or irregular periods or infertility.
Operative hysteroscopy refers to a minimally invasive technique whereby such conditions can be treated on an outpatient (day surgery) basis. Conditions treated hysteroscopically include endometrial polyps or fibroids that can be removed to enhance fertility.
After fertility evaluations have pinpointed the source of a couple's infertility, beginning fertility treatments are often all that is needed to help a couple conceive. In other cases, more advanced treatments such as in vitro fertilization, ISCI, or laser-assisted hatching are required.
