Making an Appointment at San Antonio IVF
Your OB/GYN or fertility specialist has recently referred you to San Antonio IVF. Now it’s up to you to arrange a time for a semen analysis, other types of sperm testing, sperm preparation for intrauterine insemination – IUI – , or sperm preparation for a cycle of in vitro fertilization. Each of these procedures represents a step toward the resolution of your infertility. Fertility treatment performed at your physician’s office and andrology or IVF lab services performed at San Antonio IVF are frequently performed together in order to help patients overcome female and male infertility.

We offer regular office hours Monday through Friday, from 7AM to 5PM, but we also offer flexible hours as necessary to coincide with fertility treatment cycles and IVF.
Our San Antonio IVF lab services
Male infertility treatment can be as simple as taking some pills to restore hormonal balance and optimize sperm production, sperm preparation for intrauterine insemination, surgery, or in vitro fertilization. Once you have been referred to see us, your urologist or fertility specialist will provide you with a patient requisition form, or you may contact us directly at (210) 858-3335.
To ensure the most accurate results possible, we will provide you with the instructions that you need in order to collect and transport a semen specimen to us.
In most cases, semen analysis results are available to you or your physician within 24 hours of testing.
Highly trained embryologists contribute to the success of IVF, the process of combining egg and sperm in the IVF lab to facilitate a pregnancy. When you decide to pursue the advanced fertility treatment of IVF, it’s imperative that you select a fertility lab with the credentials, experience, personnel, and facility to best care for your embryos. We work closely with your fertility specialist to make sure that you understand the logistics of egg retrieval and embryo transfer when you schedule a cycle with us.
Specializing in IVF: We understand that going through IVF can be stressful. San Antonio IVF offers flexible, responsive scheduling and direct communication throughout your cycle to minimize this stress.
We specialize in freezing and storing eggs, sperm and embryos as part of either the IVF process or fertility preservation. San Antonio IVF uses vitrification – the newest, most effective form of freezing technology to provide you with the best chance for pregnancy when you use frozen eggs, sperm, or embryos.
All services performed by San Antonio IVF are handled with the utmost of care and professionalism. Contact us to set up an appointment or to find out more about the embryology and andrology services we offer.
