Tests and Treatments for Women

At LifeQuest Centre for Reproductive Medicine, we strive to determine the best solution for your fertility issues. Sometimes that solution is simple, requiring no high tech interventions. On other occasions, all of the technology at our disposal will be available to you. Not every patient will need IVF. It is your LifeQuest doctor’s task to evaluate your situation carefully and recommend appropriate treatment. We will start the process with you and have the resources to move therapy forward as required. The following is a list of preliminary tests and treatments.
