Fertility Treatments

IUI, IVF and more.

Getting pregnant isn’t always easy. 1 in 8 couples have trouble getting or staying pregnant. Get started with a Fertility Consultation, and we’ll figure the rest out together. Our consultations are covered by most major insurance plans.

IVF with Kindbody

An IVF cycle takes about one month from the day you start taking medication to your pregnancy test. It includes ovarian stimulation monitoring, egg retrieval procedure, semen preparation, fertilization and culture of the eggs, and the embryo transfer procedure. Learn more about costs.

Step 1

Fertility Consultation

The conception consultation is the first step of the IVF process, or just a way to learn more about your fertility. It includes a blood test for fertility hormones, a review of your medical history, an ultrasound, and a personalized treatment plan.


Step 2

Personalized Plan

Once your consultation results are returned, a certified reproductive endocrinologist will recommend a personalized plan. A few more tests may be issued before beginning the stimulation process.

Your fertility care team will help you understand how to administer the at-home hormone injections before you begin.

Step 3

Stimulation Process (Day 1-13)

You’ll be giving yourself small at-home hormone injections to stimulate your ovaries so that they can grow more eggs.

Throughout this protocol - usually 10-14 days - you’ll come in for regular scans and blood tests to monitor your response to the drugs and adjust your dosage as necessary.

When your hormones and follicles are at the right levels, a fertility specialist will provide you with a trigger injection, which allows your eggs to complete maturation and start the ovulation process. This happens about 36 hours before your egg retrieval.

Step 4

Egg Retrieval & Sperm Collection (Day 14)

You’ll be sedated for about 10-15 minutes, while a physician collects your eggs. You may be a little sore afterward, but the majority of women resume normal activities the next day.

Typically, on the same day as your egg retrieval, a semen sample is collected from the male.

After the egg retrieval and sperm collection, an embryologist will place the eggs and sperm into an incubator to fertilize. Any resulting embryos are left to develop for 3-5 days and are closely monitored for quality.

Step 5

Embryo Transfer (Day 19)

Around 3-5 days after your retrieval, the highest quality embryo(s) are transferred back into your uterus. You do not need to be sedated for the transfer - it only takes a few minutes and there is typically minimal, if any, discomfort.

Any high-quality embryos not transferred can be frozen for future use.

Note: if additional genetic screening is recommended on your embryos, you may need to wait up to one month between the retrieval and transfer.

Step 6

Pregnancy Test (Day 28)

About 9-11 days after the transfer, you’ll take a pregnancy test to see if the embryo is developing into a fetus. Your fertility care team will guide you through the next steps and arrange for the appropriate support.

It’s important to note that more than one cycle is often needed — the average number of cycles is 2.5, but this varies widely.

More on the process


The fertility process often requires the use of medications, specifically hormone injections. Here’s a video of the most commonly used medication as instructed by a Patient Navigator. We are here to guide you on every step of your journey, and as such, we have videos providing in-depth instructions on how to self-administer medications throughout the process.
