Benefits of IVF


Many who struggle with infertility successfully grow their families with the help of in vitro fertilization (IVF). Doctors Nurit Winkler and Marc Kalan have helped many hopeful parents experience the benefits of IVF through compassionate and technologically sophisticated care. During a consultation at their practice, serving the greater Los Angeles, CA, area, they can explain these important benefits and help you decide if this or another solution is the best way to help you achieve your goal of parenthood.

IVF is a treatment that can help hopeful parents struggling with a range of fertility issues to successfully conceive and deliver a child.

You Control the Timeline

The realities of career-building and unique life situations mean that there may only be a narrow window of time in which to focus on growing your family. In these cases, eggs or embryos can be cryopreserved until the moment is right. Once you have chosen the right time to become pregnant, you can take advantage of this option.

Improved Chances of Having a Healthy Baby

Hopeful parents who use IVF have the option of having preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) performed on the embryo before it is transferred to the woman’s uterus. There are two different kinds: PGT-A (preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy) and PGT-M (preimplantation genetic testing for monogenetic defects). PGT-A screens for an abnormal number of chromosomes in the embryo. PGT-M is performed when there is a risk for a specific inherited genetic condition such as cystic fibrosis or Tay-Sachs Disease.

A Lower Risk of Miscarriage

One common cause of miscarriage is due to a genetic abnormality that the body senses. PGT can be used in conjunction with IVF to determine how genetically viable an embryo is ahead of time, helping to increase the likelihood o a successful pregnancy. 

During a consultation, we can perform an in-depth analysis to determine if IVF or another of our many fertility treatments is the best way to meet your needs.

Use of Donated Eggs or Sperm

In some cases, hopeful parents may not be able to produce viable eggs or sperm themselves. IVF can incorporate a donated egg, donated sperm, or both. This is key to helping same-sex couples conceive through IVF, or using a surrogate in your journey toward parenthood.

Improved Chances of Conception

There are many factors that can affect your ability to become pregnant without assisted reproductive technology. For example, as a woman ages, the quality and quantity of her eggs declines, along with the chances of becoming pregnant through natural conception. Because IVF is a highly controlled process that involves selecting and using only the most viable eggs, this treatment can dramatically increase a woman's chances of becoming pregnant beyond her 20s.
