Infertility Services

The Center for Fertility & Gynecology, Inc. exists to provide the highest quality care to our patients. This combines state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment services with a compassionate, personalized approach.

We recognize that infertility, its diagnosis and therapy, and other complex gynecological disorders can cause stress, anxiety and frustration for patients and couples.

We believe in a holistic approach to treatment which includes the emotional aspects related to your medical problem. Each patient is provided with continuous support and guidance, as well as education, throughout testing and therapy.

Our Services

Intrauterine Insemination

Dr. Tippet may recommend intrauterine inseminations as part of your treatment plan. If your husband is providing the sample for your inseminations, the cost is $300.00* per insemination; Dr. Tippet generally recommends 2 inseminations per cycle. Payment for both inseminations will be collected on the day of the first insemination.

*Price is subject to change; patients will be notified in advance.

Intrauterine Insemination with Donor Sperm

If you are using donor sperm, you must order your sample at the beginning of your cycle to assure on time delivery. Order 2 vials of sperm per cycle. If at all possible always order IUI - ready sperm.

Our office can provide you with catalogs for the above facilities. If you want to use another sperm bank you will need to make those arrangements yourself.

*Price is subject to change; patients will be notified in advance.

IVF Testing

The Center is nationally recoginized for our ability to provide same day lab and ultrasound results for patient's using IVF facilities outside of the immediate Pittsburgh area. We can also assist with performing other medical services a patient may need prior to the start of an IVF cycle. These service include but are not limited to laparoscopy, surgical removal of a damaged fallopian tube and saline ultrasounds.

Laser Laparoscopy

Laparoscopy is an out-patient surgical procedure preformed under general anesthesia. The procedure is done to diagnose and treat conditions such as endometriosis, pelvic and intrauterine adhesions. Most insurance companies provide coverage for this service.  Dr. Tippet has surgical privileges at both UPMC Passavant and West Penn Hospital.  We accept most major insurance plans including both Blue Cross/Blue Shield Highmark and UPMC.

Ovulation Induction

Ovulation induction is accomplished with both oral and injectable medications. If a patient needs injections to assist with ovulation our nursing staff will provide one-on-one injection instruction. We will work with a patient's insurance company to insure that they receive the maximum benefits allowed to them in accordance with their policy.

Tubal Microsurgery

Dr. Tippet trained extensively as a microsurgeon during his fellowship at Georgetown University. He has over twenty years of experience with reversal of tubal sterilization and tubal repair. Success rates vary depending on the patient's age and the physical condition of the remaining structure of the fallopian tubes. Patients who wish to have this procedure preformed will need to consult with Dr.Tippet and need a few diagnostic tests prior to the surgery.

Semen Analysis

Semen analysis testing is done in the office Monday through Saturday. Patients need to schedule appointments in advance and abstain from ejaculation for three to four days prior to the procedure.

Diagnostic testing

Most patients will need diagnostic testing done in order for Dr.Tippet to make a diagnosis and formulate a treatment plan. We make every effort to schedule tests in a convenient manner in an effort to allow for minimal lifestyle disruptions. Most tests need to be timed with the woman's menstrual cycle. Testing includes day 3 blood tests for measurement of ovarian reserve, pelvic and saline ultrasounds for evaluation of the uterine cavity and to document tubal patency, hysterosalpingography, postcoital testing to assess the sperm-cervical mucus interaction, hormonal testing, and endometrial biopsy to assess the intrauterine lining.
