In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

Fertility Treatment that’s Optimized for Your Success

build your family through iVF

It was over forty years ago that the world first learned of IVF. The first child conception via IVF took place in 1978 in London. Today, IVF is one of the most common used paths to pregnancy for those struggling with infertility and who are requiring assisted reproductive technologies (ART).

what is iVF?

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is the most common type of assisted reproductive technology (ART) used to create an embryo by bypassing certain causes of infertility, such as mild sperm abnormalities in men, and fallopian tube or ovulation irregularity in women.

During IVF, eggs are surgically retrieved and then fertilized in a laboratory by mixing with a partner (or donor) sperm. Following an egg retrieval, In vitro fertilization (IVF) provides a controlled environment that significantly enhances the opportunity for fertilization of the egg.  The fertilized egg, or embryo, is left to grow for 3-5 days and is then surgically transferred back into the woman’s uterus.

The fertilization process is monitored microscopically typically over a five day period in our embryology lab, during which successfully fertilized eggs develop into embryos. Then, our team of embryologists carefully examines the quality of the embryos to determine which embryos will be selected for embryo transfer, cryopreservation, or possibly further culturing and development.

If you are considering in vitro fertilization and want to know if IVF may be right for you, meet the IHR team for a consultation.

IVF Partners For Your Journey

We understand that every journey to parenthood is unique. Some individuals and couples may require the assistance of a sperm donor, egg donor, gestational carrier, or embryo donation on their path to building a family. We are here to support you at every step of your journey.

We are proud to have a network of trusted partners, each specializing in different aspects of assisted reproduction. Whether you need a sperm donor, egg donor, gestational carrier, or embryo donation, our dedicated team is here to connect you with the right resources and provide the guidance you need.

Your journey to parenthood is a deeply personal and significant one, and we are committed to tailoring our services to meet your individual needs. We believe that everyone deserves the chance to experience the joy of parenthood, and we are here to make that dream a reality for you.

Choosing the right physician

Getting pregnant and having babies should not be an impersonal experience. You can benefit in many ways when you find an infertility specialist who gets to know you and customizes a treatment plan to your individual needs and budget. You should always feel like a valuable partner in the process rather than like a number. If you are unhappy at one office, then you really should consider trying another office. Ultimately, couples who are comfortable seem to get pregnant more easily than couples with similar medical issues who have additional significant stress.

Dr. Cohen - We Cannot Thank You Enough For Helping Us Conceive Our Little Angel. She's 2 Months Old Now And Every Day We Are Grateful For The Miracle You Performed.


Our Experience At The Other Clinic Left Much To Be Desired…There Was A Night And Day Difference With Dr. Tur-Kaspa.

Jennifer and Mike

We Have Undergone Treatment At Two Other Well Known Facilities In The Chicago-Land Area. Dr. Tur-Kaspa Treated Us As Individuals And Made Us Feel Totally At Ease.

Stephanie and Joe

I Have Been Trying For 6 Years And Was Not Successful. I Have Been To Different Hospitals With Nothing To Show For It. But Thanks To Dr Tur-Kaspa, I Am Proud To Say I Am Finally Pregnant.


Dr. Tur-Kaspa never gave up on us and kept our hopes alive. We have a 14 month old baby girl who has changed our lives forever.


Dr. Cohen Was Our Second RE In Our Infertility Journey And He Was Such A Breath Of Fresh Air.


My Wife And I Are So Grateful To Have Been Referred To Dr. Cohen. While Still Being Incredibly Professional, Everyone In The Office Provided A Family-Like Feel, Which I Found Comforting.


Dr. Tur-Kaspa Is One Of The Best Doctors In Town. He Is Not Only Knowledgeable But Confident And Very Attentive.


In my very first consultation with Dr. Tur-Kaspa, he said "Your success is our success". I trusted and believed him and his team from then on and am so glad I did.


I Felt Listened To... I Am Treated Like The Strong, Smart Person That I Am; I Just Need Some Expert Help Becoming Pregnant. I would very much recommend this clinic to any of my family or friends


They Always Explained The Process And Never Made Me Feel Like A Number.


I always felt like, and truly was, in the best hands. Thank you to everyone at IHR for what you've helped us have in our lives - a lovely little boy whom we are obsessed with.


Dr. Cohen and his staff were a complete blessing to our family. We just welcomed our identical twin girls this past month, and we owe it all to Dr. Cohen and the staff at IHR.


After being devastated from 2 miscarriages at a previous clinic I switched to Dr. TK. I became pregnant on my first round of IVF with him and have 6 frozen embryos.


I am so glad my OB doctor recommended IHR to anyone with infertility issues or concerns.


At IHR, the nurses and ultrasounds techs and lab techs all knew me by name... I just felt like everyone there was really rooting for me.


After more than two years of trying without success, we pursued fertility treatment with Dr. Cohen.


I'm writing this review as my infant daughter naps nearby, which would not have been possible without Dr. Tur-Kaspa and the team at IHR.


I immediately felt like he was addressing ME and MY needs, as opposed to having a protocol that may have worked for the massess.


From the very beginning, we felt strongly supported and received the very best personalized care.


It can be overwhelming but I never felt any discomfort from any procedure I had done there and I knew each was getting us closer to our goal of becoming parents.


After having no luck on our own, a friend highly recommended that we go to IHR. I am happy to say that I am currently pregnant with my first child! I do not have enough kind words to say. Everyone at IHR was wonderful.
