Basic Treatments

When patients meet with their physician, they are often surprised to learn that in vitro fertilization (IVF) may not be their first course of treatment. In reality, most patients start with a more basic treatment option. In fact, about 50 percent of treatment cycles performed at Shady Grove Fertility include ovulation induction and intrauterine insemination (IUI)—basic treatments requiring less medication and fewer monitoring appointments with a lower cost.

Basic options aim to develop one to four eggs, with fertilization taking place within the woman’s body instead of in the laboratory setting. Many of our patients find peace of mind in knowing that they have simple and affordable options to consider. Because the caring staff at Shady Grove Fertility truly believe in and practice personalized care, we tailor each treatment modality to meet the unique needs of each and every single patient we see.
