Choosing the Fertility Treatment That's Right for You
People often want to know “what is the best fertility treatment. While there is no best fertility treatment, there may be a fertility treatment that is best for you at this moment. When deciding on your treatments during your consultation (or before or after) it’s important to consider many different things. There is a surprising number of reasons people come to seek fertility treatment – some of which lead down fairly straight forward treatment paths or options while others will require testing and will even factor in things like personality when choosing their treatment.
Our provider will listen to your story and help you through these things, but it’s always good to be thinking ahead! Let’s start by discussing two general philosophical approaches to fertility treatments.
The Path of Least Resistance
Most people choose a treatment path that follows a path of least resistance. That means you do all of your testings, then you start with basic treatments and slowly move on to slightly more invasive procedures if unsuccessful with the previous. In addition to having less invasive procedures, many insurances cover these less more basic solutions while not covering the more advanced treatments.
The Fast Track
Some people with testing supportive of starting with a less invasive treatment prefer to jump straight to a treatment like IVF which offers much higher odds of success per cycle than simpler solutions like ovulation induction or IUI. Others choose to skip basic treatments out of medical necessity (ie those pursuing fertility treatments for genetic reasons), sex selection, after a sterilization surgery, or those in the LGBTQ community looking to both be involved in their child’s creation (reciprocal IVF).

General Progression of Fertility Treatments
Given the (slight) majority of people continue down the path of least resistance, that’s a good place to start for a more in-depth conversation and exploration of the generic progression of fertility treatments from the more simple to the progressively more complex.
One should always be following our recommendations for improving male and female fertility – ideally for 90 days prior to the start of any treatment.

How Testing Effects Treatment Options
The above outline of fertility treatment progression is most directly and appropriately followed after all testing has been done with all results coming back negative . . . meaning unexplained infertility. Through testing, we can gain a better understanding of appropriate treatments and potentially eliminate dead-end paths.

Other Common Reasons People Jump to "Advanced" Treatments
From genetics to the immune system, inflammation, and lining issues there’s lots to consider but most paths lead to reproductive immunology with IUI or IVF before moving on to gestational carriers.
Sometimes chromosomal abnormalities can lead to incompatibilities with life and cause miscarriage while others simply do not want to pass along a genetically related disease. IVF with genetic testing or donor eggs/sperm can help often help.
Some people choose to do IVF to choose the sex of their child. Some call this family balancing, others gender selection. To do this, you will need to do IVF with genetic testing.
The Unfortunate Truth
As bothersome as it is, insurance coverage often dictates how people progress through treatment. Many people have IUI coverage but not IVF coverage so spend a medically unadvised time on IUIs before progressing to IVF or other treatments that appear needed. Others may have no fertility coverage which can similarly alter one’s ability to pursue treatment.
