UPDATED - Letter to Patients Regarding COVID-19 and Fertility Treatment

Dear InVia Patients

The coronavirus global pandemic continues to significantly impact our daily routine.  All of us are susceptible to this illness.  While we strive to serve you, the health and safety of both you and our staff is of paramount importance.  Just yesterday, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) made the following recommendations.

  1. Suspend initiation of new treatment cycles, including ovulation induction, intrauterine inseminations (IUIs), in vitro fertilization (IVF) including retrievals and frozen embryo transfers, as well as non-urgent gamete cryopreservation.
  2. Strongly consider cancellation of all embryo transfers whether fresh or frozen.
  3. Continue to care for patients who are currently “in-cycle” or who require urgent stimulation and cryopreservation.
  4. Suspend elective surgeries and non-urgent diagnostic procedures.
  5. Minimize in-person interactions and increase utilization of telehealth.

At InVia Fertility Specialists, we are working actively to comply with these guidelines.  If you were getting ready to start a treatment cycle, you should have received a communication regarding postponement.   We expect this delay to be for a very short time period and hope to start your treatment again in the immediate future.

We do hope to communicate with you regularly and support you during these trying times.  During this hiatus we have instituted the use of video technology and telephone consultations.  Please call 847 884 8884 to schedule your appointment.  As always, do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.
