COVID-19 Update

Dear patients and families, friends, and colleagues,

We know these last few months have been difficult. Your team at The Reproductive Medicine Institute has been keeping your safety, as well as the safety of your loved ones, at the top of our agenda. We have policies and procedures in place that allowed us to restart testing & treatment, so that you can continue on your fertility journey, and we can continue to keep our community safe.

Now that we are officially re-open, we are seeing existing/new patients without delay and preforming all procedures including IVF, here are just a few of the precautions we are taking:

-Continued telehealth consults with your care team.

-Minimization of office visits to only those needed for diagnostic testing, treatment monitoring, and in office procedures.

-Continued phone pre-screening of all in person appointments for Covid-19 symptoms.

-Prior to office entry, patients will also have their temperature and pulse oximetry taken.

-Mandatory mask wearing for all patients (please bring a simple face masks to your visit); all staff will wear personal protective equipment as well.

-Scheduled sanitation of high traffic areas and surfaces.

We are continually exploring how best to serve you and our community and will be making changes to policies and procedures as necessary.

We remain committed to you and to your journey!

Wishing you well,

Team RMI

fertility treatment options

Every patient who visits our fertility treatment center is unique. The experienced physicians and nurses at RMI have the diverse experience necessary to diagnose your challenges, determine a treatment solution, and provide the care you need. 

Intrauterine Insemination in Chicago

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

Cleaned, concentrated sperm is placed into the uterus at our fertility center. This can be combined with fertility pills or injections if it makes sense for the patient.

IVF treatment at Reproductive Medicine Institute

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

IVF has shown to be highly effective in treating infertility challenges. The egg is fertilized and closely monitored under laboratory conditions, then implanted when the embryo is ready.

Comprehensive Chromosome screening in Chicago

Comprehensive Chromosome Screening (CCS)

In order to improve your chances of a successful implantation during In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and to reduce your risk of problems during pregnancy, RMI offers preimplantation genetic testing (PGT), also known as comprehensive chromosome screening (CCS).

Egg freezing in Chicago

Egg Freezing

Often the timing is not right for a patient to have a baby but might be down the road. In that special circumstance, our physicians can cryogenically preserve fertilized eggs for later implanting.

RMI provides a complete list of treatments and therapies at our fertility center. Reach out to our specialists to learn more, and find out what options are available for you.

LGBT Reproductive services in Chicago

LGBT Families

RMI is dedicated to helping every patient begin their families regardless of sexual orientation or marital status. If you desire to start a biological family of your own, RMI can help. We can work with you regarding options for surrogacy, egg/embryo donors, or sperm donors.

Egg Donation at Reproductive Medicine Institute

Egg Donation

Even with all the advances surrounding infertility treatment, patients are sometimes unable to get pregnant on their own. Egg or embryo donation give patients the ability to conceive using a donor’s egg or embryo.

Single Gene screening in Chicago

Single Gene Screening

Inheritable diseases can always cause fear for potential parents, especially if you have a known increased risk of passing on a disease to a child. If you or someone in your family has a known inheritable condition or if your carrier testing shows that you and your partner are both carriers for the same condition, Preimplantation Genetic Testing for single gene defects can be performed.

patient testimonials

“My husband and I went to RMI after we had been TTC for about a year and a half. Dr. Nayak was very warm, friendly, and professional, and put us at ease about the process. She explained all of our options thoroughly and was in full support of us starting with the least invasive fertility treatment. The whole process can be a rollercoaster of emotions, but Dr. Nayak and her staff were comforting and encouraging.”
