What is Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)?

Intrauterine insemination, or IUI, is a medical procedure designed to help those diagnosed with infertility have a baby. It is one of the simplest and least expensive methods of treating infertility.

Secondary Infertility

There is a common misconception that if you have had a child already, you will not have any fertility problems. However, because fertility is tightly tied to age, both men and women face the possibility of secondary infertility.

What is Egg Freezing?

The process of egg freezing (oocyte cryopreservation) was considered “experimental” until 2012. It’s difficult to determine statistical success rates, since the data set is literally frozen.

Age & Male Fertility

Advanced male age negatively impacts fertility in a variety of ways, both directly and indirectly, including longer time to conception, decreased sperm quality, and increased risk for miscarriages and birth defects.

What is a Normal Sperm Count?

A normal sperm count is approximately 48 million sperm per milliliter of semen, with a normal sperm count range being 40 to 300 million sperm per milliliter of semen. A low sperm count which would indicate subfertility or infertility would be less than 15 million sperm per ml of semen.
