In vitro fertilization (IVF) involves removing eggs from a woman’s body, fertilizing them with sperm in the ARTS lab, and then implanting them directly into her uterus. This process allows those who have been unable to conceive a chance at a viable pregnancy.
If the eggs or the sperm of either partner are unhealthy or unable to produce healthy embryos (fertilized eggs), donor eggs or sperm may be used. Also, if a woman’s body isn’t able to sustain a pregnancy, a gestational carrier may be used to carry a couple’s embryo to full term.
The process of in vitro fertilization, while giving hope to many infertile couples, can be a long, emotional journey. At Texas IVF, every member of the team appreciates that each step of preparation, implantation and waiting for results needs compassionate, knowledgeable care and support.

IVF is an intense process that requires the best support possible at every stage. Dr. Rodriguez and his staff are proud to be part of your IVF team.
