Low-Complexity Therapies

Helping people with relatively uncomplicated fertile cases

Low-Complexity Therapy

Giving New York great fertility results with low-complexity therapies.

Our greatest priority at Kofinas Fertility Group is helping you start the family of your dreams — not just with our genuine compassion, but also with as little inconvenience and financial burden as possible. Our low-complexity therapies are generally our first-wave attempt at helping people with relatively uncomplicated fertility cases achieve a healthy pregnancy. These therapies are less expensive and less invasive but can still be very effective at helping you conceive.

To maximize your chances of an optimal outcome, we typically use our main low-complexity fertility therapies — intrauterine insemination (IUI) and ovarian stimulation — together.

What is Intrauterine Insemination?

Boosting your chance of starting a family with intrauterine insemination (IUI.)

Using either a sperm sample from the male partner or donor sperm, one of our experts at Kofinas Fertility Group will place a high concentration of active sperm directly into the uterus. We generally use IUI in instances when a women’s uterus is normal and her fallopian tubes are clear, and also when a male has fertility problems, such as low sperm count or low volume.

We start your IUI treatment by monitoring the woman’s blood in order to identify the optimal time for a human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) injection, which triggers ovulation. Once we trigger ovulation, the man will provide us a semen sample, and our skilled specialists will wash the sample and prepare it for insertion. Using a thin, flexible tube called an insemination catheter, your doctor will painlessly place the sample into your uterus. Generally, you will receive two IUI treatments at 12 and 36 hours after your hCG injection.

No anesthesia is necessary for IUI and you can return to your daily life shortly after we administer the sample. You will receive the sample in your physician’s office, and he or she will give you a thorough explanation of what to expect both during and after your procedure.

Ovarian Stimulation Medications

Improving your fertility with leading-edge ovarian stimulation medications.

In order to give you the best chance of experiencing parenthood, we offer the full range of controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH) medications. By prompting your ovaries to develop ovarian follicles and produce multiple eggs, we increase your chances of a successful pregnancy. Some of our advanced fertility medications include:

  • Clomiphene citrate (Clomid & Serophene)Stimulates the hormones necessary for ovulation to occur.
  • Gonadotropins (Bravelle, Follistim, & Gonal-f)Causes the development of one or more ovarian follicles.
  • Human Menopausal Gonadotropin (Menopur & Repronex)Stimulates the ovaries in order to induce ovulation.
  • Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (Novarel, Pregnyl & Profasi)Helps mature eggs and triggers ovulation, and also helps with the preparation of the uterus’ lining for implantation of an embryo.

Using blood tests and ultrasound exams, we will monitor your progress throughout your treatment until you’re finally pregnant with a healthy child and beginning a new, wonderful chapter in your life.

We are very pleased with our experience at Kofinas Fertility. Words cannot fully express the gratitude we hold. They gave us the hope we needed...and created our little "miracle"!
Antonina S
It was a wonderful experience with Kofinas. Even when I had doubts and fear within me , the nurses and doctors reassure me of the possibility of becoming a mom, am glad I have my healthy twins. Thank you team Kofinas .

The facility was good- well equipped and great doctors. Only thing was it was a bit far from my home to come there almost every week and sometimes even every day. The nurses and staffs were very friendly and helpful. Dr. Melissa Montes was especially good as she would clearly explain what was going on which was a big stress reliever for us at that time.

It was a long journey for me, with many twists and turns. And some real rough spots. But I always felt a lot of support from the staff at Kofinas- especially from the wonderful Dr. Brzechffa. And I couldn't be more pleased with the results: a beautiful healthy son.
