Comprehensive IVF Treatments in Santa Monica

From initial consultations to embryo transfer, we offer a comprehensive range of IVF treatments tailored to address a variety of fertility challenges. Our process includes:

  • Ovarian Stimulation: We use fertility medications to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs.
  • Egg Retrieval: Eggs are retrieved from the ovaries using a minimally invasive procedure called transvaginal ultrasound aspiration.
  • Sperm Collection: A semen sample is collected from the male partner or a sperm donor for fertilization.
  • Fertilization: Eggs are fertilized with sperm in a laboratory dish, either through conventional IVF or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
  • Embryo Culture: Fertilized embryos are cultured in the laboratory for several days until they reach the blastocyst stage.
  • Embryo Transfer: One or more embryos are transferred into the woman's uterus using a thin catheter.
  • Luteal Phase Support: Medications are prescribed to support embryo implantation and early pregnancy.
  • Pregnancy Testing: A blood pregnancy test is performed approximately two weeks after embryo transfer to confirm pregnancy.

Who Can Benefit from IVF?

Age-Related Infertility: Women over 35 may benefit from IVF, especially when age affects egg quality. Egg donation is also considered for age-related fertility cases to enhance the chances of conception.

Medically Infertile: Couples facing medical issues hindering conception, such as fallopian tube damage, endometriosis, or recurrent insemination failure, may find IVF to be a viable solution.

Unexplained Infertility: IVF offers hope for couples with unexplained infertility, providing a path to parenthood despite unknown causes.

Blocked Fallopian Tubes: IVF bypasses blocked fallopian tubes, making it an effective option for individuals with this condition.

Male Factor Infertility: Men with low sperm count or other fertility issues can benefit from IVF, often paired with Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) for successful fertilization.

LGBTQ+ Couples: IVF provides LGBTQ+ individuals and couples the opportunity to have biological children, whether through egg donation, surrogacy, or intrauterine insemination (IUI).

  • Embryo Freezing (Embryo Cryopreservation): Safeguard embryos created through IVF by freezing them for future transfer cycles, empowering you to pursue parenthood on your own timeline.
  • Ovarian Tissue Freezing: Explore innovative options for fertility preservation by freezing ovarian tissue, providing hope for future conception possibilities.

Cost of IVF in Santa Monica

At Reproductive Fertility Center, we understand the financial considerations involved in IVF treatment. We aim to provide transparent pricing and support options to make IVF more accessible. Factors affecting IVF costs include:

Treatment Protocol

The specific treatment protocol recommended by your fertility specialist can significantly impact the overall cost of IVF. Different protocols may involve varying levels of complexity and additional procedures, such as:

  • ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection): This technique involves injecting a single sperm directly into an egg to facilitate fertilization. While ICSI can improve fertilization rates, it may incur additional costs compared to conventional IVF.
  • PGT (Preimplantation Genetic Testing): PGT involves screening embryos for genetic abnormalities before transfer to the uterus. While this can increase the chances of a successful pregnancy and reduce the risk of genetic disorders, it adds to the overall cost of IVF treatment.

Medications

Fertility medications used for ovarian stimulation play a crucial role in IVF treatment and can vary in cost. These medications stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs, increasing the chances of successful fertilization and embryo development. The type, dosage, and duration of medication prescribed will influence the total medication cost for IVF treatment.

Diagnostic Testing

Before initiating IVF treatment, pre-treatment diagnostic tests and evaluations are necessary to assess fertility status and identify any underlying reproductive issues. These tests may include blood tests, ultrasound scans, genetic screening, semen analysis, and hysterosalpingography. The cost of diagnostic testing will depend on the specific tests required and any additional evaluations recommended by your fertility specialist.

Additional Services

In addition to the core IVF procedure, certain additional services may be recommended based on individual circumstances. These services can contribute to the overall cost of IVF treatment and may include:

  • Anesthesia: Anesthesia may be required during egg retrieval procedures to ensure patient comfort and safety. The type and duration of anesthesia administered will affect associated costs.
  • Cryopreservation: Cryopreservation allows for the freezing and storage of embryos, eggs, or sperm for future use. This service incurs storage fees and may involve additional costs for thawing and embryo transfer in subsequent cycles.
  • Other Services: Additional services such as embryo biopsy, embryo culture, and embryo transfer procedures may also contribute to the overall cost of IVF treatment.

Insurance Coverage for Infertility Treatment in Santa Monica

Dr. Peyman Saadat is an in-network provider for most PPO insurance plans, including Blue Cross/Anthem, Blue Shield, Aetna, United Healthcare, Cigna, and Health Net. Our Billing Department will verify your insurance benefits during your initial consultation, providing clarity on coverage for fertility testing and treatments.
