In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) in Boca Raton, Aventura & Palm Beach

IVF May Help You Conceive

Our absolute priority at Palm Beach Fertility Center is to help our patients achieve their goal of becoming parents. Our medical team has high success rates with in-vitro fertilization process (IVF). If you’ve had trouble conceiving, IVF may be an option for you. IVF works by boosting the effectiveness of the natural conception in the laboratory. Dr. Mark Denker, our fertility specialist, expertly manages each detail of this advanced reproductive technology and makes critical decisions throughout the fertility treatment cycle.

What Does the IVF Process Look Like?

The IVF cycle typically goes as follows:

  • Egg retrieval: The first step in IVF involves egg retrieval. After the woman takes fertility medications to promote egg maturation and ovulation, Dr. Denker removes the eggs to prepare for fertilization in the IVF lab.
  • Sperm selection: Couples that will use the male partner’s sperm usually provide a sperm sample the same day as the egg retrieval procedure. Lesbian couples and couples that have male factor infertility issues can opt for donor sperm.
  • Fertilization: Next, the eggs are fertilized with the prepared and sorted sperm. The eggs are monitored in the IVF lab for 1 to 3 days, or 4 to 5 days for blastocyst transfer, to determine which embryos have the highest chance for successful implantation.
  • Embryo transfer: Our IVF lab’s highly experienced embryologists then select one or two of the best embryos for transfer. We then place the embryos into the uterus with an ultrasound-guided catheter. Sensations during the procedure are similar to those of a pap smear. Good quality embryos that are not used in the first IVF cycle can be frozen for later use.
  • Pregnancy: Once the embryos have been transferred into the woman’s uterus, there is a wait to see if the embryo will successfully implant and develop into a healthy pregnancy. In these cases, the pregnancy continues naturally with some additional monitoring in the early stages. The first try might not be successful, and additional IVF cycles will be needed.
