Gen 5 Fertility is a leading fertility clinic specializing in IVF in San Diego. Our team of fertility specialists helps our patients understand if IVF is right for them, the potential risks associated with it, and the best way of treating infertility.

What can I expect after IVF treatment?

After the embryo transfer, you may resume daily activities after checking with your doctor. Some women experience side effects like mild cramping, bloating, and breast tenderness due to high estrogen levels following IVF.

Also, passing a small amount of clear or bloody fluid after the procedure is quite normal and occurs as a result of your doctor swabbing the cervix before transferring the embryo. If you experience severe pain after the transfer, call our fertility specialists in San Diego, CA, immediately. Some of the rare complications after an embryo transfer include infection, ovarian torsion, and severe ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.

Can I give birth to a healthy baby with IVF?

Millions of babies born through IVF are physically and mentally healthy, making it one of the most successful treatments for getting pregnant. Factors like maternal age, embryo status, and reproductive history can affect your chances of getting pregnant and delivering a healthy baby.

Our top fertility clinics in San Diego, CA,  help women conceive a healthy baby via our 100% safe and advanced IVF treatment. Ranked among the best San Diego fertility clinics, we help women over 35 and those with multiple failed IVF cycles in the past get pregnant using highly innovative and fertility treatments.

Our In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) procedure

With over five million babies born worldwide through IVF, our procedure is one of the most successful ways to have a child for women with fertility problems. Our fertility treatment in San Diego involves several stages, including:

Step 1 - Ovarian stimulation 

Our patients take fertility drugs through daily injections, which stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs. We then sedate the patient and retrieve the eggs using ultrasound guidance. This procedure allows us to collect between 8 and 10 eggs.

Step 2 - Incubation and preimplantation screening

Once we collect the eggs, we mix them with sperm in the lab and allow them to incubate. The eggs fertilize and develop into embryos. It takes 4-5 days for the embryo to mature, after which we send them for testing to determine if the fetus is genetically normal. We then remove a few cells from each embryo and send them to a reproductive genetics laboratory for preimplantation genetic screening. 

Step 3 - Preparing the uterus

We prescribe specific fertility medications to patients to prepare their uterus. These medications help build the lining of a woman's womb to accommodate the embryos. Our professionals will transfer 1 or 2 of them into the womb and freeze the remaining genetically normal embryos for later if required.
