In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a process where eggs and sperm are combined outside of the uterus to create fertilized embryos. Following IVF treatment, an embryo can be transferred to the womb to develop. This IVF treatment process has been used for 30+ years. It’s the most common method of medically assisted pregnancy, with the highest success rates.

The Oma difference
  • Oma uses Oma Sperm InSight™ and our proprietary AI microscope, which together help our embryologists select the most promising sperm cell for IVF treatment. The microscope helps them analyze 20x more sperm cells than a traditional microscope in the same amount of time. Oma Sperm InSight is our AI technology that identifies the most promising sperm based on criteria from the World Health Organization.

  • Blood work can be analyzed same day. At other IVF clinics this can take 1-2 weeks.

  • Ultrasound machines display 3D images of follicles to allow for more accurate and faster monitoring.

  • Embryo incubation uses the latest technology that allows for precise control of the environment and maximum chances for your embryos to mature.

  • Pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT) to assess embryo viability is included and done with top partner labs.

  • Gold-standard method intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is always included at no extra cost. ICSI has a ~72% fertilization rate compared to ~60% for regular IVF.

  • No additional costs for extra blood work, tests, ultrasounds, appointments, or monitoring.

IVF at Oma may be right for heterosexual and LGBTQIA+ couples and singles who
  • Have tried to conceive for 6+ months.

  • Need medically assisted pregnancy to have a child.

  • Haven’t had success with other fertility treatments (like medication and insemination).

  • Have PCOS, endometriosis, low sperm count, or other diagnoses that can affect fertility.

The full IVF journey

  • 1
    Fertility Testing & Diagnosis

    Depending on your reason for choosing IVF, you’ll go through diagnostic testing to look into the cause of your infertility. IVF is not always necessary or feasible, so your doctor might recommend alternative treatments to start.

  • 2
    Care Coordination & Financial Consultation

    An Oma staff member will go over the financial side of the IVF process with you. Your clincial team will review your calendar, order your medication, and prepare you for your treatment.

  • 3
    Pre-IVF Hormonal Preparation

    To prepare your body for IVF, you’ll need to take birth control pills. It might seem counterintuitive, but birth control helps:

    • Prepare your ovaries to respond better to hyperstimulation medicine
    • Coordinate your cycle so you can plan your treatment around your schedule

    In addition to starting birth control, we may perform additional tests and recommend lifestyle adjustments as needed.

  • 4
    Stimulating Egg Production

    During this step, you’ll begin hormonal treatments by either taking a pill or an injectable medication. This medication encourages your ovaries to produce more mature eggs than they would naturally. The end goal is to get at least three mature and fully-developed eggs. We’ll track your egg development with blood tests and ultrasounds. It takes time for your body to adjust to the hormones and nurture your new eggs, so this stage can take several weeks.

  • 5
    Ovulation & Egg Retrieval

    Once you’ve produced enough mature eggs, you’ll receive a hormone injection that induces ovulation (releasing the mature eggs). After about 36 hours, you’ll return to our office for the outpatient egg retrieval procedure. An anesthesiologist will place you under IV sedation and our specialists will remove the eggs. This only takes about 15 minutes, and you’ll rest comfortably afterwards in one of our recovery rooms. After about 30 minutes, you’ll be able to go home.

    AI-Supported Sperm Selection

    Oma Sperm InSight™ and our proprietary AI microscope help our embryologists select the most promising sperm cells for IVF, no matter where they are in the sample. These AI tools also track the sperm as they move within the sample, so embryologists don’t have to rely on hand-eye coordination and fast reflexes.

  • 7
    IVF Process & Monitoring

    We perform the fertilization in our state-of-the-art lab with the retrieved eggs and selected sperm cells provided by your partner or a sperm donor.

    Once the eggs have been retrieved a single sperm is injected into each egg in a process called ICSI to complete the insemination process.

    Our lab specialists closely monitor the embryos as they develop and will give you updates on their progression. During this stage, we can also screen for certain genetic disorders, ensuring only the healthiest embryos with the greatest chance of a successful IVF pregnancy are transferred. If you’d like, we can also reveal the sex of embryos.

    Embryo Transfer

    The doctor will meet with you to determine the best transfer plan. Our goal is to maximize the chance of a successful IVF pregnancy while minimizing the chance of multiple births. Your age and prior history with IVF will affect your transfer plan.

    Once you and your doctor agree on a plan, we’ll perform the transfer. This outpatient procedure doesn’t require sedation––it’s quick and often compared to the sensation of a pap smear. Any high-quality embryos left over can be frozen for use in future IVF cycles.

  • 9
    Pregnancy Testing & Monitoring

    After the transfer, you'll take medications that help support your pregnancy in the early stages. After about two weeks, you’ll take a pregnancy test. If the test is positive, we’ll administer another test soon after to make sure the pregnancy is progressing successfully. If everything goes well, you’ll be well on your journey to building your family. If your pregnancy test is negative, we’ll schedule a follow-up visit to discuss your options.

    Embryo Vitrification

    Any high-quality embryos that are left after an implantation attempt can be frozen by vitrification to be used in a future embryo transfer. Vitrification is a special way to freeze your eggs and embryos that avoids trauma to the cells. Water is removed from the eggs or embryos and replaced with an “antifreeze”. Then the egg is quickly brought to a very cold temperature. By removing the water and freezing it quickly, your eggs or embryos are safe from damaging ice crystal formation.

Expect better.
