Understanding the IVF treatment process
When Dr. Gehlbach works with patients in our Kansas fertility center, he begins with a full fertility evaluation. Because no two patients or cases are identical, we believe in understanding all the components to your unique situation. By gathering your medical history, running blood tests, performing a physical assessment and ordering a semen analysis for your partner, Dr. Gehlbach can identify any potential issues hindering conception.
In assessing fertility treatment options, Dr. Gehlbach makes every effort to utilize the simplest, most cost effective infertility solutions available. If options such as ovulation induction or intrauterine insemination (IUI) fail, he may recommend IVF treatment. Once you and Dr. Gehlbach determine the best course of action, our compassionate staff will guide you through the entire process, from stimulation and egg retrieval through the embryo transfer, and hopefully, to a positive pregnancy test.
