Treatment for Infertility

The Southeastern Fertility Center specializes in providing the most effective, rapid, and cost-conscious treatment for all causes of infertility.

Treatment of the infertile couple may be either specific or empiric.

Specific therapies include, but are not limited to:

Empiric therapies are treatments that are not necessarily directed at a specific problem, but are nevertheless effective in helping couples conceive. They are used in two situations:

  1. When the infertility is unexplained
  2. When specific therapies have failed

The two most common types of empiric therapy are:

Empiric therapy with Clomiphene offers pregnancy rates of 5 - 9 percent per cycle, whereas empiric therapy with HMG offers pregnancy rates of 15 - 20 percent per cycle.

There are specific advantages and disadvantages to each type of treatment. Please call our office or make an appointment to discuss further questions you may have.
