Fertility and reproductive endocrinology In Denver
Sometimes, conceiving a baby can be a struggle, but Swedish Medical Center is committed to helping you build your family. Swedish has several reproductive endocrinologists who diagnose factors involved in a patient’s infertility. We provide advanced care for those experiencing conception challenges and, using advanced treatment options, can give new hope to our patients.
Fertility treatments offered at Swedish
- Ovulation induction: fertility medications are used to increase egg production to increase the chances of insemination.
- In vitro fertilization (IVF): a woman’s ovaries are stimulated to produce multiple eggs, which are retrieved and inseminated in a lab; the fertilized eggs are then transferred into the uterus.
- Embryo cryopreservation: a woman takes hormones to increase her egg production; the eggs are extracted and frozen until she is ready to have them implanted via IVF.
- Intracytoplasmic sperm injections (ICSI): a technology used to treat sperm-related infertility where a single sperm is injected into an egg during IVF.
When to seek help for fertility struggles
If you and your partner have been trying to conceive for at least one year without success, you may want to consider talking to one of our reproductive endocrinologists. In some cases, you may need a little more time and in other cases, you may need medical assistance to understand why you are experiencing delays in conception.
Hysterosalpingography (HSG) is an X-ray examination of a woman’s uterus and fallopian tubes using fluoroscopy, a special form of X-ray and a water-soluble agent. An HSG is most commonly performed to examine women who are having difficulty getting pregnant. It is often used to monitor the efficacy of nonsurgical permanent birth control procedures, such as Essure or Adiana.
