When a couple is unable to have a child on their own, they can turn to a fertility specialist to help them make their dreams come true. One common fertility treatment that many people undergo is in vitro fertilization, which is also known as IVF. While the phrase or the abbreviation may be familiar to you, you may not know what it means or involves. The team here at our IVF center in New Jersey would like to go over five basics about IVF that you should be aware of. We can go into greater detail about IVF and other fertility treatment options at our practice during an appointment.
Getting pregnant is often one of the greatest moments a couple can have, whether it’s done the old fashioned way or involves the help of a fertility specialist. This elation is undercut if the woman miscarries. The emotional and physical strain this can have is quite devastating. The team here at our center for IVF in New Jersey understands the sadness and great sense of loss that accompanies a miscarriage. We’d like to take a moment to look at some statistics and facts about miscarriage and discuss related matters that are important to keep in mind.

The team at our center for IVF in New Jersey would like to take a few minutes to discuss sperm count issues and how these can be remedied.
When it comes to male infertility issues, one of the most critical ones to consider is the health of the sperm.

One such matter to consider is the ability for the sperm to swim properly. The team at our center for IVF in New Jersey would like to cover the basics of sperm motility right now.
Infertility problems happen to men just the same as women, though obviously for men, they have different issues to deal with.
