Assisted Fertility Program

Invitro Fertilization (IVF)

The FIRST IVF clinic in Northern FL and Southern GA was The Assisted Fertility Program. Dr. Shaykh has been offering IVF fertility treatment in Florida since 1985 and he has been in practice for over 38 years.

Our Florida IVF program has excellent IVF success rates that are at or higher than the national average. IVF is an accepted medical treatment for many causes of infertility. IVF is considered a “first line” therapy for conditions such as fallopian tube disease, moderate to severe male infertility, older women, in those who have failed other treatments, such as IUI, and other unexplained infertility cases deemed appropriate by Dr. Shaykh.

What is Invitro Fertilization (IVF)?

Invitro Fertilization simply refers to the process of creating an embryo outside of the body. The following is what an IVF surgery in most fertility centers entail.

During the IVF process the female patient will take injectable medications to stimulate their ovaries to produce follicles which contain eggs.
Once these follicles are an appropriate size, the eggs are removed using the vaginal ultrasound guidance. This process is referred to as the “egg retrieval.”
Once the eggs are retrieved, they are combined with sperm and given time to fertilize.
In cases of male factor infertility, the eggs are fertilized using a process called Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI). This is when a sperm is injected directly into the egg to aid with fertilization.

Once the eggs are fertilized and become embryos, they stay in the lab for either 3 or 5 days, before being transferred back into the uterus. The number of embryos transferred into the uterus is based on the age of the egg and the embryo’s quality.
Any embryos that were not transferred into the uterus can be frozen for later use.

PreImplantation Genetic Testing

Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT) service is provided at the Assisted Fertility Program. PGT is a specialized genetic test used during in vitro fertilization to evaluate cells from an embryo. These cells are called blastomeres. The cells called blastomeres are tracked for genetic abnormalities. Each embryo from an IVF cycle is tested separately. Embryos with normal test results can be selected for transfer to the mother’s uterus.
The clinical benefits of PGT are an active area of research. Some literature suggests that it increases the odds of pregnancy especially in the older patient. Some researchers suggest it can decrease the incidence of recurrent miscarriages. In general, PGT may be beneficial in couples where the female is over 35 years of age, or history of recurrent miscarriages, or history of previous failed IVF cycles.

Assisted Hatching

Before implantation, the embryo must hatch from its shell to attach to the womb. In some cases the shell is unusually hard, thus reducing the odds of implantation. Assisted Hatching is a procedure in which the outer layer of the embryo is either thinned or opened to facilitate hatching. It is generally recommended for women above the age of 38 and for women who have experienced a successful in vitro fertilization.

My husband and I went to Dr. Shaykh for fertility treatments for five months. We went through three cycles of timed intercourse and two of IUI before getting pregnant. I'm currently 31 weeks pregnant, due on November 3. We had a great experience at the Roanoke office, especially with Lisa. Lisa performed all of our procedures, and genuinely seemed happy for us when we became pregnant. Should we need further services, we will definitely return.
