What Is In Vitro Fertilization?
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) that can allow hopeful parents and those struggling with infertility to achieve their dreams of building a family. During in vitro fertilization, egg and sperm are combined in a laboratory. The resulting embryo is then transferred to the mother or surrogate's uterus. IVF can use the mother and father's eggs and sperm, frozen eggs or sperm, frozen embryos, or donated eggs or sperm. We provide first-rate IVF treatment at affordable prices at our fertility clinic in Englewood, CO.
The IVF Journey
Who Should Consider IVF?
While our fertility specialists prefer to lead with conservative treatments whenever possible, Dr. Bruce Albrecht and Dr. Dana Ambler both believe that IVF should be recommended when patients have exhausted other avenues of treatment or have a particular fertility diagnosis, such as tubal factor infertility.
Many medical conditions can impact fertility. If you or your partner have any of the following conditions, consider scheduling with our team to discuss your IVF candidacy:
- Fallopian Tube Disease
- Male Factor Infertility
- Multifactor or Unexplained Infertility
- Advanced Reproductive Age
- Diminished Ovarian Reserve

Are There Alternatives to IVF?
Mini IVF (minimal stimulation-in vitro fertilization protocol) offers an alternative to conventional IVF. Instead of using injectable medications, the woman will use oral medications like clomiphene citrate (Clomid) to stimulate follicle growth. This method encourages a smaller number of follicles to mature.
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is also known as artificial insemination (AI). During this process, washed sperm is directly injected into the uterus to naturally fertilize the egg. In some cases, ovulation stimulation and other medications are used to give the patient the best chance at success. IUI is often attempted as an initial fertility treatment, depending on your diagnosis.
It is important to remember that every patient is unique and individual, and treatment alternatives may vary depending on various factors like the cause of infertility. Discussing your individual fertility needs, and complete evaluation during your initial consultation will allow us to find the best route for fertility treatment.

"I had an amazing experience here at this clinic with Dr. Ambler. I had one egg retrieval in November 2022 and one frozen embryo transfer in Feb 2023. I just graduated and completed my shots/meds at 11.5 weeks pregnant and am sad to leave Dr. Ambler's care. She and her nursing staff have been so supportive and helpful in this process. Everything at this clinic is very organized and you know exactly what you are getting into and what to expect. I am grateful for the opportunity to have worked with them and to have had such a seamless experience." Morgan
