In Vitro Fertilization and Clincial Research

This Study is Closed to Enrollment

Welcome to The Research Room. We are dedicated to providing patients with knowledge about their medical condition and highlighting potential treatment options through clinical trials. In reading our posts we hope that you will understand and maybe learn some additional information about your medical condition.

Infertility – “The inability to conceive after 12 months of unprotected intercourse,” as described by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).

Infertility affects 10%-15% of couples. This makes it one of the most common diseases for people between the ages of 20 and 45. In addition, the longer a woman tries to get pregnant without conceiving, the lower are her chances to get pregnant without medical treatment. Most couples (85%) with normal fertility will conceive within a year of trying. If a couple doesn’t conceive in the first year, their chance of conceiving gets lower each month. Though there are several reasons for a woman’s infertility, the chances for success decreases more quickly as the woman gets older.  Fortunately, assisted reproductive technology such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) can help.

IVF is a method of assisted reproduction in which a man’s sperm and a woman’s eggs are combined outside of the body in a laboratory dish. One or more fertilized eggs (embryos) may be transferred into the woman’s uterus, where they may implant in the uterine lining and develop. Excess embryos may be cryopreserved (frozen) for future use.  The basic steps in an IVF treatment cycle are ovarian stimulation, egg retrieval, fertilization, embryo culture, and embryo transfer.  Though medication protocols and success rates may vary depending on the fertility center, IVF treatment grants couples the best overall chances of achieving pregnancy.

Traditionally, IVF cycles with genetic screening can cost upwards of twenty thousand dollars! To help patients, PRG has teamed up with Fertility Treatment Center to offer patients that meet certain criteria a minimal cost IVF cycle. We think it is important to note that this clinical research study is approved by the FDA and an Institutional Review Board – which protects patient’s rights. If you would like to learn more about our IVF clinical study or know someone who might, please contact us at 480-889-1211 or email us at
