In Vitro Fertilization

Can Increase Your Chances of Conception

Use of Fertility Drugs

IVF patients in Lincoln and Omaha trust our team to safely guide them through fertility drug administration. The treatment involves the use of medications to encourage the production of multiple eggs. As you take these medications, we monitor egg and follicle development with blood tests and ultrasound. Based on the results of these tests, we can adjust your medication dosage and determine when you are ready for the egg retrieval procedure.

Ovulation Induction and Egg Retrieval

Patients administer an IVF trigger shot about 36 hours before egg retrieval to induce ovulation. They will then come to our Omaha, NE, fertility clinic where our physicians will extract the eggs in a quick procedure. We can administer a sedative prior to egg retrieval to reduce anxiety and discomfort.

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a popular and highly effective reproductive treatment that can help overcome a number of challenges, including blocked fallopian tubes and various male infertility issues.


Next, we will combine the eggs and sperm in our laboratory and allow the fertilization process to occur. During the next few days, we will monitor the cultures. If fertilization occurs, we will grade the embryos and determine which and how many should be transferred to the uterus.

If there are healthy embryos remaining, we can cryopreserve them. These frozen embryos can be used for a subsequent IVF cycle if needed.

Egg Transfer

After three to five days, we will transfer one or more embryos to the uterus, where they can have a chance to implant. At this stage, we have patients take progesterone to thicken the uterine lining and encourage successful implantation.

Pregnancy Test


About 10 days after the embryo transfer, you will return to our Omaha infertility clinic to take a pregnancy test. This blood test will measure your hCG levels to determine if pregnancy occurred. Be sure to avoid over-the-counter pregnancy tests, as the medications used during the IVF process can result in false positives.

I cannot put into words how amazing the staff is at this clinic. They were on the ball through our entire IVF journey, with insanely fast calls back when it came to my questions, test results or even when I was just afraid and needed reassurance, and I was so sad to leave them when we switched to our OB. After nearly an 8 year infertility journey, we decided to go in for IVF, and after our second transfer we were blessed with a beautiful baby boy. He's 7 months old now, and I just am so glad we walked into that clinic.
