IVF Process

Penn Fertility Care has helped thousands of individuals and couples get pregnant. In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a procedure in which the egg and sperm are joined outside the body, and then transferred back inside. The following steps are taken during an IVF procedure:

  1. The ovaries are stimulated to produce multiple egg-containing follicles.
  2. Progression of follicular development is followed by evaluating hormone levels and performing ultrasounds at the appropriate times.
  3. A transvaginal ultrasound guides the retrieval of the eggs.
  4. The recovered eggs are immediately transferred to the laboratory where they are cultured and fertilized.
  5. On a predetermined date, the developing pre-embryos are inserted into the uterus.

Each step is carefully choreographed to ensure the best success. The procedure itself, including the laboratory work, is performed in Penn Fertility Care's central state-of-the-art facility.

Financial Options for Fertility Care

For couples trying to get pregnant, dealing with fertility problems can be extremely challenging. Currently not all insurance plans cover fertility care. Some plans may offer partial payment, others none.

The cost of fertility care runs a broad spectrum, from moderate services including evaluation, counseling or drug therapy to more specialized services. Penn Fertility Care offers comprehensive, state-of-the art infertility treatment at competitive fees. The program’s full-time financial counselors are available to provide financial guidance on payment for services at any stage during the treatment process.
