Her office staff were cheerful and accommodating. Dr. Lane herself is quite personable and energetic; I liked that it was basically a private practice rather than a large impersonal clinic. After a few failed tries with my own eggs I moved on to donor egg, which she was able to facilitate; the whole thing seemed to happen quite quickly from the time I made the decision to go this route. I ended up with beautiful amazing twins.
As a non-profit organization, Gift of Parenthood relies on donations from our community and network of partner clinics. These donations contribute to our quarterly grants programs and monthly giveaways, which fund fertility care for future parents across the US. Without partners like Lane Fertility Institute, our grant cycles and giveaways would not be possible. Lane Fertility supported the 2021 Christmas Gift Of A Lifetime Grant. This California-based clinic offers many sought-after reproductive treatment options, like in vitro fertilization (IVF). Here’s some helpful information about Lane Fertility Institute IVF treatment.
Lane Fertility Institute IVF Questions Answered
Lane Fertility Institute, led by Dr. Danielle Lane, has two locations in Novato and San Francisco, California. They offer a wide range of treatment options at their clinics, including in vitro fertilization (IVF), fertility preservation, intrauterine insemination (IUI), Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), egg freezing, preimplantation genetic screening (PGS), preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), and alternative family planning.
IVF is a treatment option that Dr. Lane frequently utilizes for patients when other methods have failed. To help you learn more about Lane Fertility Institute IVF, we asked Dr. Lane some common questions about IVF.
What Is IVF?
In vitro fertilization or IVF is a method of assisted reproduction in which a man’s sperm fertilizes a woman’s eggs outside of the body in a medical laboratory.
IVF involves five steps:
- The patient takes injections to stimulate the ovary to mature multiple eggs at once.
- The eggs are retrieved and placed with sperm in a dish.
- In some cases, a single sperm is injected into the egg.
- Once the embryos are formed, they are placed inside the woman’s uterus.
- If there are additional embryos, they are frozen for future use.
What Happens During Egg Retrieval?
How Are Eggs Transferred Back To The Uterus?
Dr. Lane and the patient will discuss the number of embryos to be transferred. Embryos are then transferred to the uterus with transabdominal ultrasound guidance. Following the transfer, the patient takes two pregnancy tests to confirm success. Once two positive tests are completed, an ultrasound is conducted to ensure all is well.
Dr. Danielle Lane is a highly regarded reproductive endocrinology and fertility specialist who provides fertility services to patients from throughout the state of California. Dr. Lane provides many services beyond IVF, including IUI, fertility preservation, alternative family planning, PGD/PGS, and many others.
I am so glad I stumbled upon Dr. Lane and her fertility clinic! They’re truly a hidden gem. Dr. Lane is extremely bright (only doctor to have accurately established a proper protocol for our situation), which thankfully resulted in more eggs retrieved and healthy embryo
