Some certainty in the uncertainty

Infertility is time-sensitive and with a pandemic thrown at you, it makes preparing for pregnancy all the more a rollercoaster. Each day spent waiting feels too long, especially if you've been trying to conceive for years. Our entire infertility community has absolutely been devastated by the changes. However, time and time again our community has shown resilience. There is no doubt that we will rise even stronger after this. We at the Center of Reproductive Medicine stand with our community and will provide support and preconception care however way we can to create or grow your family.

We will continue to stay updated, and comply, with ASRM guidelines. We do not see infertility treatments as "elective" and would love to help you continue your journey, but your safety is paramount. In the meantime, what can be done to prepare for pregnancy during COVID-19? Quality preconception care improves pregnancy outcomes. We've outlined suggestions below to help you during preconception. If you’re planning with a partner, it's important that they’re also held accountable. Your physician can go over these points with you in more detail.

Professional Guidance

  • Confirm with your primary care physician that your vaccinations are up-to-date.
  • Schedule a preconception counseling appointment with a CORM physician. They can provide guidance around what approaches you can take to prepare your body for pregnancy. Each patient is different and your physician can make suggestions tailored to your individual needs.
  • Once your preconception counseling has begun, consistently take medicine prescribed by your physician.
  • If you do have a positive pregnancy test, your CORM medical team will want to do early blood testing, ultrasounds, and doctor visits to ensure you have a healthy pregnancy. This is to encourage a smooth first 12 weeks of pregnancy with minimal adverse medical events.
