    Whatever family building option you choose, RSMC will make sure that you get the expert care you deserve. Many of our patients choose to use third-party reproductive services (using sperm, eggs, and/or embryos from a donor) to help them achieve their family building goals.

    Women have a several options when building their family. However, before choosing which option is best, it is important to decide who will carry the pregnancy (you, your partner or a gestational carrier). You will also want to consider how many children you want as well.

    Once you have decided who will carry the pregnancy, this person will have the initial fertility evaluation, which can help determine if there are any medical conditions or risk factors to address that might affect fertility

    During your initial fertility evaluation diagnostic testing will be performed. This gives us a clear picture and determines if there are obstacles that may affect you or your partner’s ability to achieve or carry a pregnancy. Several tests and diagnostic exams include:

    • Ovarian reserve testing: A series of blood and imaging tests that help determine the quality and quantity of viable eggs. This also helps determine if an egg donor is needed.
    • Hormone testing: There are a variety of hormones associated with reproduction. We typically test for levels of FHS, LH and AMH to determine your remaining egg supply. FHS levels are a good indicator of egg production. LH levels trigger ovulation and development of the corpus luteum.  AMH indicates the presence of growing follicles. Hormone testing will also determine which partner has the highest quality eggs.
    • Transvaginal ultrasound: An ultrasound is standard with any fertility evaluation. We will check for scarring uterine fibroids and polyps.
