In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

For many patients, IVF maximizes the chance of conception and healthy pregnancy. Our team of leading fertility doctors, physicians, and embryologists is highly experienced in safely and effectively providing this advanced approach to In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment in Canada. 


While IVF was initially developed to deal with tubal infertility, today, more than half of all IVF procedures are performed for other reasons. Now it is commonly used in response to unexplained infertility and to increase the success rate in cases of sperm-related infertility.


Pursuing IVF consultation and treatments can seem overwhelming at times, but our team of experienced fertility doctors are here to walk you through every step of the journey. It is our top priority to give you the best possible chance of reaching your family building goals while supporting you fully throughout your time with us.


Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

IUI, or artificial insemination, is a common treatment used in a range of infertility issues. It is considered a less invasive approach, than some other ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology) procedures, because the critical steps necessary for conception must occur as they would without any medical assistance.

If you decide to undergo IUI (artificial insemination), you will first have to undergo a gynecological exam. The physician will insert a thin, flexible catheter through the patient’s cervix into their uterus to deposit a sperm sample. This insertion is painless and the patient can resume their daily activities within minutes. The sperm inserted into the patient’s uterus has been washed in the laboratory to concentrate it. The sperm can come from a chosen partner (artificial insemination with their sperm – AIS) or from a donor (artificial insemination with donor sperm – AID).

  • Infertility problems associated with a low sperm count or with sperm or morphology problems. 
  • Infertility following a cancer treatment (when the patient has planned ahead and has had sperm frozen prior to their treatment).
  • Repeated failures with ovarian stimulation.
  • Unexplained infertility.

  • Major sperm abnormalities, such as a total absence of sperm.
  • Hereditary genetic diseases or infectious diseases that could be transmitted to the other parent.
  • Isoimmunization or other problems.
  • Infertility following a cancer treatment.

Ovulation Induction

Ovulation induction describes the use of oral or injectable fertility medications (gonadotropins) to stimulate the ovaries to produce mature eggs. The purpose of ovulation induction is to develop and ovulate one or more eggs in someone who normally does not ovulate. Based on your diagnosis, your doctor will prescribe the treatment most appropriate for you.


Ovulation induction may be recommended if you:


  • Have ovulation problems that have not responded to simpler medications (such as clomiphene citrate).
  • Have unexplained infertility and wish to try ovulation induction in order to increase the number of eggs produced in each cycle. With increased egg production the chance of conception also increases.


To be a candidate for ovulation induction you must have a normal uterine cavity, and at least one normal fallopian tube, and the other parent must have a normal sperm count. In the general population, 20% to 25% of healthy, fertile people who are trying to conceive become pregnant each month. In our experience, ovulation induction typically produces pregnancy rates of 10% to 20% per cycle, depending on your age, diagnosis, and duration of infertility. Approximately 15% to 20% of gonadotropin pregnancies will miscarry, similar to the general population.


Other Treatments

Other treatments our team may recommend include:


  • Antibiotics to treat infections
  • Hormones to treat issues such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) or pituitary hormone irregularities.
  • Surgical intervention

Third-Party & Reciprocal Reproduction Solutions

Many of our patients require a sperm donor, a gestational carrier (also referred to as a “surrogate”), embryo donors, or egg donors. We are an experienced fertility clinic in the Toronto area that works seamlessly with third-party programs, while ensuring that health guidelines and regulations are met. We are also experienced in reciprocal IVF which allows more than one partner to be intimately involved in the process.
