Infertility is a highly personal, and often very private, journey. Yet choosing a fertility center for your reproductive assistance is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.
At SpringCreek Center in the Columbus, OH area, we believe that educated and supported fertility patients will experience the best results as they work toward achieving their goal of starting a family.
In this article, the fertility experts at SpringCreek Fertility Clinic in the greater Columbus, OH discuss three often overlooked factors that couples need to consider when choosing the right fertility center for their unique reproductive needs.
Fertility Center Options in Addition to IVF
When considering a fertility center, it is important to ensure that they offer more than just IVF (in vitro fertilization). For couples who need reproductive assistance, IVF is only one of many treatment options that may be right for your fertility needs.
To begin with, some infertility cases don’t even require IVF – and less expensive, more conservative treatments (like Clomid and timed intercourse) are all that’s needed. If a fertility center jumps straight to pushing IVF, without exploring all of your options, it can be a red flag.
For example, for women who have trouble ovulating, men with a very mild male factor infertility, and same-sex women couples, we also offer Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) at SpringCreek Fertility. This less expensive procedure ensures that women are ovulating, helps the man’s sperm to fertilize the egg, and provides optimal hormonal support for conception.
We also offer the latest technologies and techniques in egg donation and egg freezing – to offer our families the fertility treatments that are right for their unique situation.
The Right Size Fertility Center
There are advantages and disadvantages to choosing very large or very small fertility centers. Larger facilities, as a rule, have a bigger budget and so frequently offer more, better, and newer technologies; however, small fertility centers may offer more personal care and treatment.
We believe that SpringCreek Fertility Center hits the “sweet spot” of being big enough to offer the latest equipment and most advanced technologies in reproductive assistance – while still offering the most compassionate and personalized care.
At SpringCreek, we have three doctors on staff who are double-board-certified in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, and Obstetrics and Gynecology – as well as three nurse practitioners. So there is always an experienced medical professional available to meet your needs. And our caring staff of ten clinical care providers, and eight laboratory technicians, service and support every family with care and concern.
Educate yourself on the many fertility tests that are available, and ask your prospective fertility clinic which diagnostic tests (male and female) they plan to perform. Unfortunately, many self-proclaimed fertility experts do little in the way of scientific testing that can pinpoint your reproductive issues, as well as ensure the best results during your fertility treatments.
With an in-house laboratory staff of eight, SpringCreek Fertility Center offers the most exhaustive diagnostic fertility testing in the greater Columbus, OH area.
We also offer preimplantation genetic testing (PGT-A) and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGT-M) to determine if the cells in an embryo have the correct number of chromosomes, and to detect the presence of genes for specific diseases.
The fertility center you choose to help you on your reproductive journey should offer the most advanced and effective treatments and technologies for your unique fertility struggles.
The award-winning medical team at SpringCreek Fertility Clinic in the greater Columbus, OH area has assisted more than 5,000 families with compassionate care and the highest standard of medical treatment available.
