Fertility & Reproductive Health

 

The University of Michigan’s Center for Reproductive Medicine offers an innovative program of advanced treatments to help patients achieve a healthy baby.

Infertility is usually defined as not being able to get pregnant despite trying for one year. It’s a problem for one out of every six couples. The University of Michigan is proud to offer individualized evaluation and treatment tailored to each couple's needs, history, and desires.  Both male and female fertility specialists see patients at the Center for Reproductive Medicine, and regular provider communication allows for the creation of a unique plan to maximize each couple's chances for success.  

Assisted Reproductive Technology

We offer the following assisted reproductive technology options:

  • In vitro fertilization
  • Ultrasound-guided embryo transfer
  • Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (a single sperm injected into an egg)
  • Freezing of extra embryos for future use
  • Intrauterine insemination
  • Egg donor in vitro fertilization
  • Therapeutic donor insemination (using donor sperm)
  • Pre-implantation genetics diagnosis

We also offer our Fertility Preservation Program, an approach involving specialists to provide counseling and education services as well as sperm and egg collection and storage services. The specialists see patients prior to starting any treatment that has the potential to damage their fertility, such as testicular or ovarian cancer.

Sometimes the solution doesn’t require extraordinary measures. A medical condition such as thyroid or pituitary abnormalities can make a patient infertile. Diagnosing and treating the underlying medical condition by our team may mean a couple doesn’t need assisted reproductive technologies in order to have a baby.
