The doctors and staff at Midwest Fertility Center respect that this is a sensitive and emotional issue and take the utmost care when talking and caring for their patients.

The fertility specialists know their work is important to their patients on a personal level and therefore try to provide as much information as possible to each patient. The fertility specialists at Midwest Fertility Center want to maintain open and honest communication through patient education.

Midwest Fertility Center has heard repeated stories that relaxing will lead to conception. However, Midwest Fertility Center arms patients with education so infertile patients can explain to family and friends that infertility is a medical condition like any other and the fertility treatments can help an infertile couple conceive.

Not only is the procedure rarely performed elsewhere, but Midwest Fertility Center also has had great success rates.

Infertility is difficult for some couples to deal with emotionally but possible to overcome through treatment. The fertility specialists at Midwest Fertility Center help patients understand that infertility is a medical condition just as any other medical condition is and there are treatments available to create a solution. At Midwest Fertility Center, there are five forms of assisted reproduction treatments performed by doctors in the Chicago and Northwest Indiana locations.

The five assisted reproductive treatments provided by Midwest Fertility Center include: in vitro fertilization, gamete intra fallopian transfer, intra cytoplasmic sperm injection, assisted hatching, and blastocyst transfer. Among all five, it is in vitro fertilization that is the most common assisted reproductive technique. This is the technique were eggs are taken and fertilized outside the womb and after the eggs have developed enough, placed into the womb.

Gamete Intra Fallopian Transfer or GIFT is when a doctor uses a surgical process called laparoscopy to retrieve eggs using a small camera to examine the uterus and ovaries. Midwest Fertility Center‘s doctors take the eggs and after fertilizing them, transfer them into the fallopian tube.

ICSI or intra cytosplasmic sperm injection is also performed at Midwest Fertility Center. This procedure is accomplished when a single sperm is injected directly into an egg. Doctors at Midwest Fertility Center perform assisted hatching by creating a hole in the surface of the egg.

The last procedure performed at Midwest Fertility Center is blastocyst transfer where an embryo is transferred to the womb five days instead of the traditional three. There are advantages and disadvantages to this procedure. Midwest Fertility Center uses this method to reduce multiple embryos but the risk is that embryos may also stop developing.

Each couple that comes to Midwest Fertility Center will sit down with a fertility specialist. Discussion will determine the want and needs of each couple. Midwest Fertility Center’s goal is to help couples conceive stress free and at low risk.

If a woman is struggling to conceive, doctors want to determine the possible cause of a woman’s infertility. To achieve this, Midwest Fertility Center uses a minimally-invasive procedure called laparoscopy which uses a small camera to look into the abdominal and pelvic cavities with a small incision.

Midwest Fertility Center uses laparoscopy to determine female infertility by examining a woman’s reproductive organs.

Midwest Fertility Center Promotes Ways of Increasing Fertility

Filed under: health,Treatments — midwestfertilitycenter @ 6:19 am  Tagged

The work performed by Midwest Fertility Center involves years of training and a skill unlike that found anywhere else. But a point often driven home by Dr. Madanes and his team of professionals at Midwest Fertility Center is that they cannot do all the work. There is always a level of cooperation required of the patient in order to increase the chances of success. With the recent discoveries of the effect of the male’s diet on the fertilization chances, we are now seeing that everybody has a role to play. Midwest Fertility Center believes that diet and exercise are the two most effective ways of increasing one’s chance of achieving pregnancy.

The consumption of fish oil and omega 3 fatty acids are considered essential parts of the fertility promoting lifestyle. Fish oil brings a balance to the emotional state of the woman trying to conceive. Dr. Madanes of Midwest Fertility Center has noted a definite advantage in those patients who consume omega 3 fatty acids. Consuming fish oil can also help male fertility issues. It contributes to a lowering of cholesterol. Those at Midwest Fertility Center know that many male fertility issues are caused by high cholesterol.

Exercise in any form can increase one’s chances of pregnancy. This has been proven through the fertility yoga trend, an exercise that has been promoted by Midwest Fertility Center. Also, recent studies have shown that male’s exercise habits have a great effect on his fertility. Studies that have been promoted by Midwest Fertility Center have shown that a male who is conscious of diet and exercise is likely to increase the chances of conceiving with his partner by as much as 60%. Midwest Fertility Center stresses the great attention that needs to be paid to the avoidance of alcohol and cigarette smoke by both the male and female seeking fertility.
