The most wonderful stage of your life is about to begin: starting a family.

Experts in Fertility and Intrauterine Insemination

The Fertile Path of the Family is a path longed for by many couples. At FERTILITE, over 80% of couples are successfully treated, most within the first 3 months. Only competent and excellent medical care can make this possible.

Am I Infertile?
When Should I Address This?

Infertility is a common issue that requires specific evaluation. There’s no need to fear reproductive medicine or assisted reproductive techniques. Late diagnosis of infertility can impact the possibility of starting a family.

We talk about infertility when a sexually active couple fails to achieve pregnancy after 1 year without contraception. The WHO recognizes this situation and takes into account the current context of industrialized nations.

Age: A Key Factor in Pregnancy Success

In the Western world, the trend toward motherhood at older ages is increasing. One in seven babies is born to women over 35. However, fertility starts to decline in young women from the age of 30, regardless of their physical condition and despite the increase in life expectancy. As we age, it becomes more difficult to conceive, both naturally and with artificial insemination, due to the steady decrease in the quantity of eggs. This fact is crucial when planning a family.

Step by Step Toward the Family

Our experience allows us to design customized fertility programs for each patient according to their stage of life.

This involves specific tests, gynecological procedures, and fertility techniques. Some exams include:

For Women:

For Men:

For Women:

Medical history, physical examination, and initial transvaginal ultrasound.

Laboratory analysis: Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH), hormonal profile (FSH, LH, Estradiol, Prolactin), as well as infectious and immunological studies.

Complementary studies like Hysterosalpingography, Hysterosonography, Hysteroscopy, and in some cases, laparoscopic surgery.

For Men:

Semen analysis to assess sperm quality as an initial study.

Consulting And Planning

Once the results are obtained, a meeting will be held to integrate the diagnosis. The most suitable therapies for each couple will be presented, explaining the reason behind each step.

Possible Therapies for Infertility

When a woman has alterations in ovulation or in the cervix, or in the case of men, mild to moderate alterations in sperm analysis are observed, recommendations suggest considering the possibility of artificial insemination, also known as intrauterine insemination (IUI).

In cases where there is obstruction in the fallopian tubes, moderate to severe endometriosis, severe male infertility (such as a significant shortage of sperm in the semen analysis), unsuccessful transfers, or recurrent losses during pregnancy, the treatment of choice could be in vitro fertilization (IVF), either with or without intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).

Patient-Centric Approach with International Character and Multicultural Awareness

Our international patients come from over 10 countries and choose Tijuana as a destination to fulfill their family dreams. We are committed to you in this process.

Variety of Options According to Life Stage

Intrauterine Insemination

Intrauterine artificial insemination is a less complex assisted reproduction procedure that aims to improve the possibility of fertilization by optimizing the arrival of sperm to the fallopian tube.

Indications for Intrauterine Artificial Insemination

This procedure is recommended for women up to 38 years old with adequate ovarian reserve, permeability in the fallopian tubes, normal semen quality or mild to moderate alterations, and a pregnancy search period of less than 3 years.

Process of Intrauterine Artificial Insemination

Ovarian Stimulation

Hormones (gonadotropins) are administered over an average of 10 days to promote proper follicle growth and subsequent maturation and ovulation of one to three eggs at most.

Semen Preparation

The semen sample is processed in the laboratory for selection and capacitation, ensuring that the sperm have increased mobility and fertilization capacity.

Insemination

This simple, quick, and painless procedure is performed on an outpatient basis in the medical office, depositing the sperm sample into the uterus using a catheter.

Pregnancy Test

After 15 days, a blood test is conducted to measure beta-hCG hormone levels, indicative of pregnancy.

Final Considerations

If after three attempts of intrauterine artificial insemination pregnancy is not achieved in patients under 35 years old or older, it is advisable to consider the option of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

In vitro fertilization (IVF) has been successfully used for 40 years, resulting in the birth of more than ten million children worldwide through this method, with half a million added each year. IVF involves the fertilization of eggs by sperm in the gamete laboratory, allowing for the necessary embryonic development before transferring these embryos into the uterine cavity.

Reasons Why In Vitro Fertilization Treatment Might Be Indicated For A Young Couple

Infertility

When attempting to conceive for a prolonged period without success, IVF might be recommended after exhausting less invasive treatment options.

Failure in Previous Treatments

If other fertility treatments, like artificial insemination, have not succeeded in at least three attempts, IVF might be considered as the next option.

Sperm Issues

If the male’s sperm quality, quantity, or mobility is compromised, IVF can facilitate fertilization by allowing direct introduction of sperm into the egg.

Fallopian Tube Issues

If the fallopian tubes are blocked or damaged, IVF can be a viable option for conception, as fertilization occurs outside the body.

Genetic Abnormalities

If one or both partners have hereditary genetic conditions, IVF can include preimplantation genetic testing to select embryos without those anomalies.

Diminished Ovarian Reserve

If Anti-Mullerian Hormone levels or follicle count are low, IVF could help maximize pregnancy chances by using multiple eggs in a cycle.

Severe Endometriosis

In cases of advanced endometriosis that affects ovarian function or causes significant adhesions, IVF might be considered.

Unknown or Multiple Causes

In some cases, there might be multiple contributing factors to infertility, and a specific cause hasn’t been identified. IVF can be an option in such cases.

Previous Surgeries

If a woman has had surgeries affecting pelvic or reproductive anatomy, IVF might be a more effective option for achieving pregnancy.

Steps Involved in an In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

Ovarian stimulation

This process involves administering FSH hormones or a combination of FSH and LH during a treatment cycle, followed by ultrasound checks to assess ovarian response. Ovarian stimulation is tailored to each patient individually, aiming to obtain mature follicles indicating a higher ovarian reserve.

Ovarian Puncture

Once follicles reach the appropriate size and number based on ultrasounds, egg retrieval is performed through ovarian puncture. This procedure is done on an outpatient basis, in the operating room, under sedation. It is a brief intervention with generally no notable symptoms, allowing the patient to resume daily activities immediately.

Fertilization of Oocytes

After obtaining and evaluating the eggs, their fertilization is carried out using sperm from the partner or a donor, which have been prepared beforehand. This fertilization can occur in two ways:

Conventional IVF: Placing an egg in a culture dish with a sample of sperm.

ICSI: Involves introducing a sperm, previously capacitated, directly into the egg through microscopic puncture.

Embryo Transfer

Once adequate embryonic development is observed, the highest quality embryos are selected for transfer. This is a painless outpatient procedure performed under ultrasound control. Embryo transfer is conducted at our center on the 5th day of development, with a maximum of 2 embryos transferred to the uterus. To confirm pregnancy and monitor progress, a beta fraction measurement is taken from blood samples, followed by an ultrasound to verify embryonic vitality.

Embryo Vitrification

High-quality embryos between days 5 to 7 of development that are not transferred are cryopreserved using the vitrification technique for future use. These embryos are stored in the embryology laboratory until their utilization.
