Here are some of the treatments you can benefit from at Dr. Meng’s infertility practice in Newport Beach, California.
In-Vitro fertilization is among the most effective infertility treatment. It involves joining the eggs and sperm in a lab to form a healthy embryo. Your provider then transfers the embryo to your uterus, enhancing a healthy pregnancy.
The treatment involves a series of procedures, such as ovarian stimulation, which involves injectable medications to enhance success in the growing of eggs. Dr. Meng retrieves your eggs using a transvaginal ultrasound-guided technique to identify follicles and fetch the eggs using a needle. After collecting both the eggs and most healthy and viable semen, embryo culture mixes them and lets them incubate for a night. Embryo transfer occurs a few days after egg retrieval. Using a catheter, your provider transfers the embryo to the uterus.
Ovulation induction allows the production of mature eggs for fertilization through medications. The treatment helps solve anovulation, a condition characterized by immature ovaries, inhibiting egg release. This procedure also helps improve your chances of pregnancy through timing intercourse.
Oocyte cryopreservation involves preserving a woman’s eggs for future use. This treatment is helpful to patients with increased risks of infertility due to medical conditions or medications, genetics, and others. The treatment stores your healthy eggs by freezing them until you are ready to start a family.
Artificial insemination is an infertility treatment for patients unable to conceive due to low sperm count, endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, or low sperm motility. It involves delivering sperm into your uterus to boost your chances of conception. The treatment can also benefit single women or same-sex couples using a sperm donor.
This treatment benefits couples unable to conceive due to increased risk pregnancies or infertility issues. It involves embryo implantation to another healthy woman’s uterus, using your eggs and partner sperms. It is a solution for women unable to carry a pregnancy to term.
Dr. Meng helps you in finding the right surrogate. It is a good option for same-sex couples and single parents.
Other treatments may include:
- Fertility drugs
- Intracytoplasmic sperm injection
- Assisted hatching
- Intrauterine insemination
- Sperm retrieval
