At The Johns Hopkins Fertility Center, we provide a range of treatments for infertility, from more basic treatments such as ovulation induction to more advanced procedures, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF). We have extensive experience working with a variety of complex conditions and tailor our treatment strategies to each of our patient’s individual needs and goals. Even if you have been unsuccessful with infertility treatments at other centers, we can help you achieve your goal of parenthood.
Infertility Treatment: What to Expect
Fertility treatments vary based on the underlying causes of your infertility. Fertility treatment options typically include oral medication (and in some cases, injectable) to increase the quantity of egg releases. This can be paired with trying to conceive naturally or other treatment methods such as intrauterine insemination and IVF.
You will meet with your fertility specialist to determine the best treatment plan for you.
Our Infertility Treatments & Services
Learn how we help improve ovulation and increase the likelihood of pregnancy from intercourse.
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
IUI involves implanting sperm into the uterus of the woman’s body to achieve pregnancy.
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
IVF is a multistep process in which medical staff manipulate eggs and sperm outside the woman’s body and then implant the fertilized egg into the woman’s uterus.
For patients facing a cancer diagnosis, or those who want to preserve embryos and sperm for future use, we offer embryo, oocyte and sperm cryopreservation (freezing).
Genetic Carrier Screening
Learn what conditions your baby may be predisposed to based on your and/or your partner’s DNA.
Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGD)
This genetic screening test can be used by IVF patients to better predict the likelihood of IVF success before embryo transfer.
Become an egg donor
Healthy women ages 21–30 may be eligible to donate eggs to help others achieve their dream of parenthood — and receive compensation for it.
Gestational Carrier (Surrogacy)
We counsel our patients who wish to use a surrogate to achieve a pregnancy and provide them with resources to help initiate the process.
We serve as a resource to our patients who want to use donor sperm to achieve pregnancy. Learn more about the process of using donor sperm.
Donor Egg Treatment
Donor egg treatment is a procedure in which one woman becomes pregnant through in vitro fertilization using donated eggs. Learn more about the process of using donor eggs.
