Many of CCRM’s patients are helped through basic infertility treatments. If you and your partner are having difficulty conceiving, then you may want to consider learning more about infertility treatment such as Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), which is often referred to as “artificial insemination.”
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a fertility treatment in which sperm and egg are combined in a laboratory setting to allow for fertilization outside of the body with subsequent transfer of the embryo back into the uterus. CCRM has helped thousands of families have babies via IVF.
While infertility is often thought of as female issue, about half of all infertility cases stem from male reproductive problems. Since sperm health is vital to conception, it is important to have your sperm evaluated if you are struggling with infertility. Fortunately, many causes of male infertility are treatable.
Through preimplantation genetic testing techniques, CCRM can select and transfer the highest quality embryos possible during the in vitro fertilization (IVF) process, giving you the best chance of having a healthy baby by reducing the likelihood of implantation failure and miscarriage.
When it comes to fertility, age matters. As you get older, your eggs diminish in numbers and in quality making it more difficult to conceive or maintain a pregnancy. Freezing your eggs in your 20s and 30s allows you to take advantage of your body’s fertility at a time when your eggs are at their healthiest.
Hearing you have cancer changes everything. It is critical to be informed of your reproductive risks, educated about your choices, and empowered to make decisions. Remember: treatments, answers and hope exist and begin with quality, timely information. Thinking about fertility now can help you make choices when you are ready.

Women that have experienced three or more consecutive, spontaneous miscarriages may benefit from comprehensive chromosome screening, a process that examines all 23 pairs of chromosomes in an embryo during the IVF process.
In gestational surrogacy, the child is not biologically related to the surrogate mother, and instead created via in vitro fertilization (IVF) using the eggs and sperm of the intended parents or donors, and is then transferred to the surrogate.
