Traveling to GIVF for Reproductive Assistance
Genetics & IVF Institute is a pioneer in many of the assisted reproductive services that are utilized in clinics worldwide, so patients choose to travel to GIVF for our treatments and services.
Our care team is experienced in guiding travel patients through the fertility treatments process on a schedule that works best for their specific parenting goals. Whether you want to work exclusively with GIVF or in conjunction with your local clinic as well as GIVF, we will make your experience as smooth as possible.
Some patients complete all their appointments at our clinic. In that case, the patient would need to stay in the Northern Virginia/Washington, DC, metro area for about 2 ½ to 3 weeks to complete a cycle in one trip.
For some patients who can only travel for a shorter period of time, they can choose to complete the standard monitoring appointments at an IVF clinic near their home, then travel to our Fairfax, Virginia, office for the final days of monitoring and the procedures.
If starting the cycle near their home, the patient would be monitored every few days for about 7–8 days on average before traveling to our area. The final days of monitoring, egg retrieval, and embryo transfer all then take place at the GIVF clinic in Fairfax, Virginia.
Patients often choose to come to GIVF for the 3 or 4 days leading up to and including egg retrieval and insemination, then return a few days later for the embryo transfer.
Timing and travel options can vary for each patient based on their medical circumstances and the treatments for which they are traveling. Our care team will discuss your specific needs after your initial consultation.
If you will be traveling to Genetics & IVF Institute, it is not just your medical needs that we strive to meet. We also understand that you may need guidance on places to stay, dine, and even have a bit of recreation and fun. Genetics & IVF Institute is located near the Mosaic District with several places to shop, dine, and see. Below is a list of a few places near our location and in the greater Washington, DC, area to help you plan your trip to GIVF.
