About Fertility Clinic

Fertility clinics are staffed by trained personnel including reproductive endocrinologists, embryologists, sonographers, nurses and lab technicians. Some offer additional services such as acupuncture, nutrition and counseling. A fertility clinic may also offer group classes, mind-body workshops, or support groups.

The first step in getting care at a fertility clinic is to schedule an evaluation appointment with a reproductive endocrinologist. At this time, the physician will take your medical history and perform a physical exam to determine why you have been having trouble getting pregnant.

If your doctor recommends you try in vitro fertilization (IVF), you will need to undergo several cycles of treatment. This involves injecting synthetic hormones to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs. A physician will then retrieve the eggs, and an embryologist will inseminate them with your partner’s sperm or donated sperm to create embryos.

Once an embryo is transferred to your uterus, you will need to wait 2 weeks for a urine pregnancy test to tell if the procedure was successful. Some women find this 2-week period of waiting to be the most stressful part of their treatment.

Before you start treatments, ask your insurance company about coverage for fertility. NYU Langone Fertility Center accepts most major health plans, including Aetna, Cigna, Empire BlueCross BlueShield, Optum, Oxford Health Plans and United Healthcare. The center has a team of billing professionals who can work with you and your insurance company to help make sure you understand all charges for services that may not be covered.
