Opinions about Valley Center for Reproductive Health

    I was just reading the profile of the Valley Center here because I’m looking for reviews about fertility centers in California but since I couldn’t find any, I’d like to ask you about your experience at this fertility center.

    My husband suffers from asthenozoospermia. We tried for 1.5 years before looking into assisted conception. Besides looking for a suitable fertility clinic, we’d also love to know which treatment we need. Theoretically, what I got from the internet was that we can opt for IVF. But I’m not sure if we’d need a sperm donor.

    Thank you in advance for responding.

  2. Hi Clare90,

    first of all, which treatment you need, depends on the type of asthenozoospermia. If your husband presents mild asthenozoospermia, restoration of male fertility by means of natural treatment such as leading a healthy lifestyle would be possible. There is also some medication that could be used to boost sperm quality.

    However, in severe cases, the only option would be resorting to assisted reproduction. The most recommendable treatment is In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), either conventional or using ICSI (Intracytoplasmatic Sperm Injection). Should you still be unable to get pregnant, you’d need to resort to sperm donation. Read everything about your treatment options here: How do I get pregnant with asthenozoospermia?

    Hope this answers your question,

    Best regards

    • Hi Romina

      Thanks for the information. My husband suffers from moderate asthenozoospermia so maybe, in the end, we don’t need a sperm donor after all. My husband is not really eager about sperm donation since he wants a biological child. Which I absolutely understand but for me, it wouldn’t make a difference though.

      Well, I’m still looking for sharing insights about this center. I’m a little anxious about scheduling an appointment since I absolutely have no idea which clinic to chose. The Valley Center would be a good fit in terms of location but I’m hesitating. We want to make the best decision possible.

    • Hi again,

      I absolutely understand how hard it is to make a decision. One of the most challenging tasks is choosing the right fertility clinic for you since various aspects have to be considered. For this reason, I recommend you also our guide on how to choose the right fertility clinic.

      Also, the most important factor is feeling comfortable in your fertility clinic. Undergoing a fertility treatment is stressful, therefore, you should avoid any additional stress factors. We from inviTRA recommend you visiting at least two or three different fertility clinics in order to compare your impression of each one of them. Here in our clinic directory, you have an overview of fertility clinics in your preferred area: Review of fertility clinics in California.

      Hope this makes your decision-making a little easier.

      Wish you all the best.
