For many couples, artificial insemination is the first step in the treatment for infertility because it is less expensive and less invasive in comparison to assisted reproductive therapies such as In Vitro Fertilization. Simply put, it is giving Mother Nature a helping hand! Couples that are experiencing male infertility issues, such as a low sperm count or problems with sperm motility, have an easier time conceiving using artificial insemination versus “letting nature take its course.”
Artificial insemination plus the use of fertility medications increases the odds of conceiving for women who are experiencing problems with ovulation. At Red Rock Fertility Center in Las Vegas, fertility specialist Dr. Eva Littman, has extensive experience in the treatment of patients using artificial insemination. Working with an expert team of embryologists, Dr. Littman will help to facilitate a successful outcome to your treatment.
The process of Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) requires no anesthesia and is not painful for the patient. It is a simple procedure that results in few side effects. A small catheter is inserted into the cervix through which sperm are injected and are then able to swim up to the fallopian tubes where fertilization can take place. The success rate for IUI is between 10-20% and depends upon the age of the women and the quality of the sperm. For women who are experiencing problems with ovulation, fertility medications will be used in order to stimulate the ovaries to produce eggs. Dr. Littman will closely monitor the number of eggs that are allowed to mature in order to reduce the number of multiple births.
Consult with a fertility doctor
Red Rock Fertility has one of the most advanced laboratories in Las Vegas as well as on the West Coast. In addition, it is the only certified clean room lab in Las Vegas. Dr. Littman is one of the most trusted fertility specialists in the Las Vegas Valley, having been voted Best Infertility Doctor in the Las Vegas area for 2012 and 2013.
You will see Dr. Littman for all of your appointments, and, with the rest of the staff, they will develop and guide you through your individualized fertility treatment plan using artificial insemination. The average cost for artificial insemination is between approximately $300-$700 per treatment (using your partner’s sperm). Figure an additional $1500-4000 if fertility medications and ultrasound are also involved in the process. While many insurance carriers cover the cost if IUI itself, they do not typically cover the cost of fertility medications.
