What do we offer?

Fertility Treatment

We recognize that every person that visits us brings with them a unique set of circumstances. Some have been struggling with infertility for years while others are new to this reality and don’t know where or how to begin.

We are committed to offering a spectrum of treatments to allow for a fertility blueprint individual to each person. As a result of our innovative fertility options, we are proud to offer family building solutions for all, regardless of status, age or discouraging past diagnoses. What this means is there are no hopeless cases here

Your initial assessment

Embryon
One Step at a Time

Our IVF specialists understand that every person’s path to fertility is completely unique and carefully review all medical history and testing results. Your consultation can be set in person, with us at our clinic, or at a distance if easier for you.

A complete analysis of your case is provided, as well as a clear and defined fertility map on how to reach pregnancy quickly and successfully. Both male and female components are evaluated for the most comprehensive assessment possible.

During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to have all of your questions answered and to participate in developing a plan for an in depth evaluation and/or treatment. Your initial visit may include a pelvic ultrasound to assess uterine health. Any additional testing can be completed within a month (or one menstrual cycle) of an initial consult.

To make the most of your consultation time we recommend preparing in advance. Having access to your vital information helps our team offer the most streamlined course for your next steps. You will be asked to provide blood testing results to give us an understanding of your overall health before starting treatment. These tests reveal blood type, check for possible hormonal imbalances and determine whether you (or your partner) carry any genetic or infectious diseases or antibodies – all of which can affect the health and outcome of a pregnancy. Additional Information required can include:

  • Copy of your medical records from your general practitioner, previous fertility clinic and / or gynocologist
  • Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) report and images
  • Pertinent questions regarding your care, any medical issues unrelated to fertility or any features important to you which could be relevant to your treatment plan. We encourage you to write these down so as to make the most of your time spent with our team members.
As we encourage our patients to play an active role in their fertility treatment planning, your input is key in our diagnostic process. We formulate your diagnosis together so as to set realistic, achievable goals and to ensure that your treatment pathway supports your budget schedule, and values while attaining pregnancy as efficiently as possible. If you’re uncertain about the future, and just want to discuss your fertility options with our experts, Embryon appreciates the opportunity to guide you towards parenthood.

One Step at a Time

Infertility Diagnosis & Testing

A fertility assessment for male or female patents or couples may include:

Evaluation of ovulation and the hormonal assessment of oocyte / quality

Sperm quality and a full anaysis of all sperm components

Examination of the fallopian tubes

Evaluation of the uterus

For Women:

It’s important to rule out general physical problems, as well as evaluating the uterus and ovaries through a combined physical examination and an internal ultrasound. Depending on your situation, you may be asked to schedule this test for a certain time during your menstrual cycle.

This involves the assessment of specific hormone levels during the menstrual cycle, in order to recognize female fertility such as FSH , LH , AMH.

This commonly involves listening to your heart and lungs, along with a brief pelvic examination.

Our specialist uses a thin, flexible tube, with a camera on the end, and inserts it through the cervix and up into the uterine cavity. Tissue samples can be taken, and photographs of the inside of the uterine cavity to allow us to view any defects present, such as: Endometrial Polyps, Adhesions, or Fibroids. Minor defects, can typically be removed at the time of the procedure. Larger defects, such as fibroids, may require a more extensive surgical procedure to remove at a later time.

Is a test used for investigating the cavity of the uterus and the fallopian tubes to see if an egg can travel with ease. If either the cavity or the tubes are damaged, it may be difficult to become pregnant. It is not possible to see the patency of the tubes with ultrasound alone; a specialized catheter is passed into the uterus through the cervix. Under ultrasound control, a small amount of fluid is passed into the uterus. If tubes are open, the fluid will be seen passing through the tubes on the ultrasound screen.

This procedure is painless compared to traditional hysterosalpingography and does not involve x-ray imaging.

Is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that uses a laparoscope (a fiber-optic tube with light and video camera) inserted through two or more minor incisions, often in the belly button. This allows for viewing of the pelvic reproductive organs and the pelvic cavity assisting in the detection of endometriosis, adhesions and tubal pathologies.

For Men:

Since sperm issues affect around 40% of couples with infertility, it is important to do a semen analysis to identify any issues that may be present. The male partner should have between 2 to 5 days of abstinence, prior to collecting a semen sample for testing.
  • Viscosity (resistance to flow)

  • Motility (movement of the sperm)

  • Count (number of sperm)

  • Morphology (Structure or shape of the sperm)

  • Volume of semen

The assessment of sperm is essential as this step ensures accurate treatment design in order to target low sperm quality or number and increase the chance of success.

In some cases, a physical examination may be requested to evaluate the pelvic organs — the penis, testes, prostate and scrotum.

Hormone tests evaluate levels of testosterone and FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) to determine the overall balance of the hormonal system and specific state of sperm production. Additional hormone evaluation may be requested according to the individual.

The integrity of genetic material in the sperm is essential for successful fertilisation and normal embryo development. Sperm DNA fragmentation is a term used to describe abnormal genetic material within the sperm, which in turn may lead to IVF failure and miscarriage. A conventional semen analysis done for sperm concentration, motility analysis and morphology assessment cannot assess the sperm at the molecular level and detect DNA fragmentation.

  • High sperm DNA fragmentation affects blastocyst development

  • Higher the DNA fragmentation levels, higher the chances of failed IVF and miscarriage

  • Sperm DNA fragmentation is higher in subfertile men with abnormal sperm parameters

  • Men with normal sperm parameters are also found to have high sperm DNA fragmentation
