Experience with GW Medical Faculty Associates Fertility Center

  1. <span  class="bbp-author-name">Elaine</span>

    Hi all,

    I’m a PCOS patient and have been trying to get pregnant for 1 year now with my husband. Now, we think it’s time to go to a fertility clinic. I was detected PCOS when I was a teenager so I think that might have an impact on our ability to get pregnant. I’m specifically looking for a PCOS specialist. We looked through the clinic directory of Washington on this page and we find the GW medical faculty to be very interesting. However, I don’t know if the Medical Faculty Associates Center offers PCOS treatments because I haven’t found anything about that.
    I’d also be open to other suggestions. Btw, we are from Washington and therefore looking for centers here.

  2. Hello Elaine,

    I was patient at the GW medical faculty associates and I was extremely happy with my choice. I’m an endometriosis patient and they did a surgery before my IVF cycle. I’m also lucky to have “only” mild endometriosis so it wasn’t that bad. So, I was successful in my first cycle. I don’t know if they specifically treat PCOS but I can well imagine that they’re able to help you with that since they incorporate different practices and specialists.

  3. Hi Starship

    thanks for answering. I found something on their website that mentions infertility diagnosis with PCOS. So I think I could give it a try and call them. At least schedule a skype convo first until things are back to normal. At least now with the coronavirus going on, I have plenty of time for doing research until starting a treatment.

    I’m still looking for another suggestion, though, because I’d like to compare as many fertility centers as possible.

    • Hello Elaine,

      there are various treatment options that allow you to get pregnant with PCOS. This pathology can be regulated with hormonal contraception. Also, artificial ovulation induction is necessary since women with PCOS suffer from inoculation. Therefore, it is possible to use medication such as clomiphene citrate, letrozole, or gonadotropins. However, I recommend you to discuss your treatment options with your fertility doctor first. For more information about PCOS treatment options, I recommend you read our post: How can PCOS be treated?

      Last but not least, when you’re looking for a fertility clinic, it is important that you chose the one you most feel comfortable with. Dealing with infertility is already stressful, so avoid any additional inconveniences. Therefore, we from inviTRA recommend you to visit at least 2 or 3 different fertility clinics in order to compare your impression of each one. Here you have an overview of fertility clinics in your area: Clinic directory.

      Hope this helps,

      wish you all the best.
