we’re a couple from Santa Monica and looking for IVF. We were recommended Santa Monica Fertility by my OB/GYN. I’m looking for someone to share experiences with. How did your IVF cycle go? And did you immediately get pregnant?07/31/2020 at 11:22 am
I was diagnosed with PCOS in my teenage years and my former GYN told me I probably could have trouble getting pregnant. I didn’t think about it that much since I was only 17. However, when I met my husband, we soon wanted to start a family and that’s when my infertility hit us hard. We tried getting pregnant naturally for more than one year and I took a lot of vitamin pills thinking that would do. Since I’m into alternative medicine, I also tried with fertility acupuncture.
Well, nothing worked out and we scheduled an appointment at Santa Monica Fertility. We also looked into 2 other fertility centers in the Californian area but stuck to this center in the end and we didn’t regret 🙂 My first IVF was successful and should we ever plan to have a second child, we’d go to Dr. Jain again!08/08/2020 at 8:01 pm
I’m so happy to hear that, it cheers me up. Could you explain me how an IVF looks like? Did you experience any side effects? I heard they have to perform a surgery to extract your eggs, is this true? I thought they would just inseminate you with your partner’s sperm.08/15/2020 at 12:53 pm
No, what you mean is artificial insemination, that’s a different procedure. Maybe you don’t need IVF, what is your diagnosis?08/17/2020 at 7:00 am
Just like Flor said, in artificial insemination, the doctor will insert the previously processed sperm of your husband, or if necessary from a sperm donor, into the patient’s uterus with a insemination cannula. This is the simplest assisted reproduction treatment and used for minor infertility issues.
In vitro fertilization (IVF), on the other hand, is a complex fertility treatment that involves the collection of eggs from the woman’s ovaries by means of a small surgery (follicle puncture). Then, they are fertilized at the laboratory using the husband’s or partner’s sperms. The development of the resulting embryos is monitored until the embryo or embryos selected are transferred back to the woman’s uterus. Read more about the differences between these two treatments here: Differences between artificial insemination and IVF.

Feeling comfortable in a fertility clinic is important since undergoing fertility treatment is already stressful, so you should avoid any additional stress factors. Therefore, we from inviTRA also recommend having a look at at least two or three different fertility clinics in order to compare your impressions about each of them.
