Why should you consider our state-of-the-art facility in Houston, TX?
Plan for Your Future with Fertility Preservation
For hopeful mothers, fathers, and couples, fertility preservation opens up a world of possibilities, giving patients control of when to have a child. Preservation allows patients to use young, viable eggs or sperm for conception, or freeze embryos, reducing the risk for complications later on.
For those who have diseases, disorders, or other medical conditions that could negatively affect their fertility, preservation can be life-changing. Our fertility center offers services to patients from greater Houston and visitors from out of town.
Helping Patients Just Like You
Who Can Benefit from Fertility Preservation?
Healthy WomenWomen who want to get pregnant in the future may choose to freeze their eggs. Fertility decreases with age, but preservation keeps the option open for patients who may be unsure of their timeline, giving them access to healthy eggs at any time.
Cancer PatientsCancer treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation can damage ovarian function and sperm, affecting your reproductive health. We'll help you understand your options before undergoing cancer treatment and create a plan together.
Medical ConditionsMedical conditions such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, or treatment for autoimmune diseases can affect fertility and ovarian function. Certain genetic diseases are also linked to potential infertility.
Exposure to Toxic ChemicalsEnvironmental toxins such as pesticides, heavy metals, and chemicals can contribute to infertility. Toxins can cause eggs to prematurely age, and contribute to hormone imbalances or low-quality sperm.

"Dr. Kristiansen and Staff Were Always So Kind and Attentive"
My husband and I had a great experience here. Our first visit was relaxed and informative. Another place we tried was very pushy and “salesy”, like they were selling me a car. Dr. Kristiansen and staff were always so kind and attentive. When we had difficulty, they were caring and very helpful. Accommodating to our unique schedule and informative whenever we had questions, no matter how silly. I recommend this place to anyone having difficulties. Thank you HFC for helping us conceive our TWINS!!View On Google
Dr. Kristiansen and her staff are amazing! If I could give more stars, I would. For my first appointment, I went by myself and Dr. Kristiansen was so warmly, and non judgmental on every question I’ve asked her. Every visit since then, my fiancé have gone with me and everytime, the staff would hold conversations with us and answer any and every question we’ve had. All of her staff is lovely and amazing, but there’s two women I have to give credit to. Mayra and the phlebotomist. I don’t remember her name and I’m so sorry lol but those two ladies are heaven sent and I’m glad Dr. Kristiansen hired them. Her treatment plans work fast and she’s very affordable. I’m glad I’ve found her. Thank you❤️View On Google
We Offer Egg Freezing and More
What Are My Preservation Options?
This process involves the freezing, or cryopreservation, of unfertilized eggs. Women take injectable hormone medication to stimulate their ovaries and produce multiple eggs. After approximately ten days, the eggs are carefully retrieved and stored.
Male patients who wish to preserve their fertility can provide a semen sample, which is then sorted, frozen, and stored for future use. This option can be used in combination with egg freezing, allowing egg and sperm to join when conception is desired.
This process uses in vitro fertilization (IVF). The ovaries are stimulated to promote egg production, and a sperm sample is collected. The eggs and sperm are fertilized in a lab to form one or more embryos, which are then frozen and stored.
